Dipping A Toe Into Squidoo - My First Lens

I finally gave Squidoo a try tonight. Squidoo, for those who haven't heard of it, is a site where you can create a 1 page website on anything you're passionate about. From Hillary Clinton to Craftsman Pressure Washers, Squidoo hosts it all.

I made my first lens on the topic of having your idea turned into software. No surprise there, right? It's actually a compilation of information that I've found that my clients find helpful. I suppose it's essentially the web version of the i2x infomercial - minus the offer of Ginzu knives. Actually I tried to be a bit more education based than marketing based.

The lens was pretty fun to make. Though, I'm starting to appreciate that I could have made it about a more narrow topic - say questions you should ask the programmer who's building your software. But, for now, this is a good start.

If you feel passionate about a topic, and don't feel like you can support a whole blog on the topic, a Squidoo page may be a good way to go. Give it a try and let me know what lens you create.
