Great lenses to Visit

As most of you know, we have a team competition happening at Squidoo. The Jolly Judicious Jetsetters is one of those teams.

One of the best ways to learn Squidoo is by visiting great lenses. I can assure you that each lens listed in the Jolly Judicious Jetsetters is an excellent lens. Go to the JJJ lens now (just click on the link above) and start visiting!

There are two plexos full of lenses - at last count there were 156 in all. The first plexo includes lenses created by lensmasters who are trying to qualify for Giant Squid at the end of June with 50 excellent lenses - looks like they are well on their way to doing just that!

The second plexo is for Giant Squids who are creating lenses to qualify for Giant Squid 100 - 100 excellent lenses!

This site is a treasure trove of super examples! Come visit us! We'd love to see you!

How to Be You - On Squidoo

In Chef Keem's lens on How to Be You on Squidoo, he quotes Seth Godin: "Remarkable doesn't mean remarkable to you. It means remarkable to me. Am I going to make a remark about it? If not, then you're average, and average is for losers."

Chef Keem's lens is one of the best I have ever seen about the importance of sharing yourself on Squidoo. I strongly recommend that you read this one today.

Don't you like to read personal lenses? Isn't it fun to get to know other folks? And then, don't you then begin to follow that person's lenses -- just because you like them or appreciate their openness? Don't you know people feel that same way about you?

Are you sharing your own personality on your lenses or feeding us rote information? Guess which one is the most fun to read.
