I have been using squidoo for a while for various purposes. It has been almost 2 years and I have created more than 1000 lenses so far. Now I am sure you will ask me to show you the 1000 lenses and before you do that let me clarify it. I discovered squidoo in mid 2008 through a Google search and was hooked since then. It took me a while to understand the way it worked but I am adventurous; I dug deep into the squidoo world and learned a lot from designing to layout and coding. Couple of months later, I started creating some decent lenses, wala! Usually it doesn’t take that long to learn squidooing but once you master that, you can create an awesome lens in less than an hour. I created tons of lenses for me and also started helping others create a custom one for a small fee. This is how i reached the 1000 lens milestone
Today, I decided to enlighten everyone about the power ofSquidoo which is one of the largest social media network.
