Your First Lens

As soon as you join Squidoo, you need to do two important things.
First, create a lens. It does not have to be perfect, but create a lens on your favorite subject.
I recommend 3 text/write modules. Be sure to keep these short. I learned the hard way that people do not like to read long text modules. 5 sentences is plenty!
Add a picture or two or three. Pictures add interest and color to your lens.
Add a guest book. Give people the opportunity to comment.
Now, with your first lens created, go join SquidU forum and read as much as you can. This is the central learning center for creating Squidoo lenses.

Each post, I will make two recommendations to you- one is a place to learn more about Squidoo and the second will be one of my own lenses for you to visit.
Today, since this is the very beginning, I recommend that you visit
Creating Your First Lens
and I invite you to visit one of my favorite lenses
