I'm a Squid

I'm a squidoo squid, and I have been for over a year and a quarter. I've started over 30 lens and probably published 18 of them. I make about $3.50/month with this site.

If you like writing articles I also recommend ehow and Hubpages for good free ways to make money online.

Tutorial: How to Build a Good Supernatural Squidoo Lens

What is a Squidoo lens anyway?

A Squidoo lens shines a spotlight on something that interests you.

Basically, a lens is a single webpage on one topic. For example, you like Supernatural posters? You can build a Squidoo lens about your favorite SPN posters. Been to one of the SPN cons? You can build a lens about it.

Lenses are great because they are so fast. You can build a lens in less than an hour, then come back a few days or a week later to add some more stuff. And, because they are so short, they don't take a lot of work.

Squidoo lenses are great for fans who want to get creative in a way that doesn't involve building a website (which can take some work), writing fanfiction (not all of us have been bitten by the writing bug), or do fanart (same as before). You don't have to update a lens constantly, like a blog. You don't have to host images you use in a lens somewhere else. Basically, there are a lot of positives.

Here is the lens I built for this tutorial, to give you an idea what lenses are like.

In this tutorial, I'm going to show you, step-by-step, how to put together a Squidoo lens. Follow along. You'll be surprised how fast it really is.

Challenge: Build a Lens for Supernatural

So, what the heck is a Squidoo lens?

Here's one I just built to give you an idea.

Supernatural Crossover Fanfiction

You can build a good lens in about an hour. And they are great for fans who want to get creative in a way that doesn't involve building a website (which can take some work), writing fanfiction (not all of us have been bitten by the writing bug), or do fanart (same as before). You don't have to update a lens constantly, like a blog. You don't have to host images you use in a lens somewhere else. Basically, there are a lot of positives.

You can make a lens on anything SPN related.
  • Your favorite SPN posters.
  • Your trip to that SPN com last year.
  • Your favorite SPN episode.
  • The music of SPN.
  • Your 10 favorite SPN crossover fics.
  • How closely Sam matches his astrological sign.
  • Your favorite one-shot character.
  • A poll on the women of SPN.
Or anything else you can think of. Really, the only limit is your imagination.

So, here is the challenge.

Build a lens devoted to Supernatural. It's easy. And, if you need some help, just follow this tutorial I wrote for just this purpose.

The deadline is Monday, March 3rd. Anyone who builds a lens between now and then, and posts their link here at Supernatural Squidoo Lenses will get a cookie. And the person who builds the most lenses (if you get the urge to build more than one) will be crown SPN Grand Lens Master, and will get a whole box of cookies. :D

So sign up for a Squidoo account, and start building.
