Going for the Giant Squid

December 29, 2008 at 2:19 am Leave a comment

No, it’s not some deep sea expedition, though that sounds like fun. The end of December marks the doldrums at About Chemistry so I’ve been playing over at Squidoo making lenses. I’m trying to get 50 good lenses up before the end of the year, which means there isn’t a lot of time left. I’ve been making progress though. I’ve been writing about some of my non-chemistry interests like:

How to Set Up a Native Aquarium
How to Make Beaded Snowflakes
How to Give a Cat a Pill
Burwell, Nebraska
Rock Tumbler Basics
Hot Cocoa Recipes
Lip Gloss Recipes

It’s addictive. Is it profitable? Indirectly. You can put your RSS feed on each page, so maybe it serves as a source of traffic. The RSS feed and linkbacks are nice, but the real value for me lies in writing something different using a different format and different tools. It’s nice to get a fresh perspective. It’s liberating to write about absolutely anything. I think there is lot of potential for Squidoo pages. They do well in search and are set up for a high level of reader interaction. You can help people, plus make a chunk of change for yourself and/or your favorite charity. Pretty cool.
