Writing at Squidoo and ProSquids
I began writing Squidoo pages to promote my Zazzle shops. I highly recommend Squidoo to anyone who loves to share information with the world or is trying to promote an online store, sell a book, or even support a charity.
The next step was to join ProSquids where many long time Squidoo writers have joined forces to help those of us with less knowledge about the many good things Squidoo offers. One of which is how to make real money with your writing.
The people at ProSquids know about using keywords to get more visitors and lots of good SEO information. I have a lot to learn and at ProSquids I do learn a lot!
Just like at Squidoo, the community is helpful and friendly and you won’t be called a dummy (at least not to your face ..haha).
A squidoo page is made up of modules that can be added to the page and used for writing text, adding photos, highlighting an idea or link, leaving comments and even selling products with an easy to use Amazon module.
View some of my popular lenses to see how I do it:

Photo Cooking: Cheesy, Easy, Chicken Parmesan
But you don’t have to sell anything at all to still make some money. Squidoo pays you according to “lensrank” and the more liked and viewed your page is, the more your share of the “pot”.
Lakeerieartists just wrote a nice explanation of how that happens which you can read here and just posted an insightful interview with Squidoo founder, Seth Godin.
If you’d like to add a little (or a lot!) extra to your PayPal account or help support a worthy cause, then I encourage you to look into Squidoo and then become a part of ProSquids.
And if you want to get started now… Go For It!
