Have you ever heard of Squidoo?  No, it's not a new sushi food.... it's a fairly new website that offers the promise of more exposure for you and YOUR websites ~ your blogs, your Etsy, your Zazzle, anything at all you want to promote more.  Or it's just a place where you can tell the world about your favorite things, or maybe your not-so-favorite things.

At any rate, I finally grabbed a few hours yesterday to explore Squidoo in depth, and set up my own profile.  I crafted my first two "lenses" and I'm off!  I can't wait to build more and more on Squidoo.  I have a fellow Zazzler to thank for the idea (thank you Shane from Reflekshins!)  

Although I had heard of Squidoo and visited it earlier last year, I had somehow forgotten about it amongst all the other "to-do's" in my life (I know, I can't imagine how that could possibly happen!)  :-)

On a side note, my Zazzle store has been doing fantastic lately -- I've sold 100 copies of my Pink Gerbera Daisy thank-you card and 100 copies of my Sunflower thank-you card along with sheets of postage to match!

Woo-hoo!  Getting those "sold" emails just makes my day!  I would love to shed one of my two regular jobs if I could just make my online presence everywhere better! 

So if you have a spare second,
check me out on Squidoo!


  1. Those are beautiful. You are SO smart!!!

  2. Cool, will have to check it out and pass to the girl.

  3. I'm happy for you and hope the online business keeps expanding. I'll have to check out Squidoo.

  4. Thanks for the info! I am going to check it out!
    I have had several offers of advertising (I currently only have Ariat) but, I just have not made the plunge! I don't want to offend anyone, drive away followers etc.
    I also have many readers who have asked about a calendar, coffee mugs, and even "Annie t-shirts"!

    Should I shouldn't I? What is your grand opinion?!

    I know you are going to be successful enough to ditch the 2cd job, Susan! Your pics are amazing :)
    xo, misha

  5. Sounds like 2011 as the potential of being a great year for you. Persistence is the key for starting any business. I tried several times over my life time and just didn't have the right mentality for it. I admire those that are successful and from reading your blog I think you have what it takes to be a success.

    Good luck with your endevours and have a great 2011 day.

  6. I'm still trying to figure out Skype. Congrats on the success of your cards and such. How fun that must be to have the creative forces working for you.

  7. I will definitely check out squidoo and your profile. I'm so excited for you that your zazzle site is doing well. Those thank you cards are very pretty. Good for you. Keep the momentum going.

  8. Congrats on the big sales at Zazzle. Your photos are fantastic!

  11. Here's hoping that you achieve the dream and can 'quit the day job' for your passion full time! Stunning photos as ever Suz!
    Thanks for the heads up on Redbubble about Zazzle too...I'll check it out =)

  12. CONGRATULATIONS Susan! I've heard of Squidoo but didn't know what it was so never looked it up. Your photo's are wonderful and I wish you all the best with your sales! I hope it won't be long until you can get rid of that second job. I miss seeing your posts. Take care...and keep warm
    Maura :)
