General Etiquette on Squidoo

One of the first things to do as a new Squidoo-er is to visit lots of lenses. These visits will teach you more than you can learn in any book. And if you enjoyed the lens, please say so. Your comment should be in tune with the lens and should include enough information to show that you actually read it.

Do not just say "nice lens" and add your link. In fact, do not add your link in someone else's comments unless it is very specifically relevent. When in doubt, just don't do it. If someone wants to know more about you, they can click on your name for your profile.

Do say positive things. Example "I learned so much from this lens. I did not know the Statue of Liberty history. Thank you." or "Your pictures of the Statue of Liberty are beautiful"......

As you visit and comment, many of the lensmasters you visited will return your visit and comment. This is a great way to make friends in the Squidoo community.

And do be a participant in the community. Be active and helpful in the forum. You will learn so much there.

Now two lenses for learning and viewing:
Learn about Squidoo Angels, go to Is A Squid Angel Looking Over Your Shoulder?

And just for fun, visit our daughter's wedding at Unique Wedding Ideas

Keep writing and creating and have fun!
