I was debating with myself as to where to write about the two good news from my site at Squidoo. I finally decided to split it up so both could get the attention and the exposure they equally deserve.

According to the top guns at Squidoo, a purple star is rare and is awarded to top notch lenses that have original content. I am therefore very honored to have finally received my first ever purple star! ^_^
It doesn't come much of a surprise 'coz I know that I work hard on making all my lenses as complete and informative as I could. I don't just create lenses for the sake of doing so. A lot of the content that I write I feel a connection to. That way, writing becomes such a breeze and an enjoyable feat.
True, I want to earn extra income from my Squidooing, if there is such a term indeed. But I also feel that I have to provide content that is helpful and useful. That would involve preparation as well as research. So it does take me some time before I am able to complete a lens.
I joined Squidoo way back in July, it's actually two months ago to this date. And I'm so happy that I not only graduated from RocketSquids bootcamp, but that to date, I have around 36 lenses.
I'm still going to be working on some. If you like writing about any of your interests, then I would love to invite you to write for Squidoo too. If you do sign up under me, let me know and I will help you get started! And no, I will not be charging you tons of fees. I will however ask one thing of you... and that is to commit to achieving success at Squidoo. ^_^
And if you are wondering as to which lens got the first ever purple star, it's the one on How We Care for Our Guinea Pigs. I invite you to read the story of Gin and Nea. ^_^ I hope to see you at Squidoo! Ta-tah!
