Do You Squidoo?

28 Nov

This month I started writing on Squidoo.com.

Squidoo (created by Seth Godin) is a website that allows its users to create a page about anything they want. Also, you can get paid for you work. Or you can give the money to charity. Or get paid.

Having just started, I’m not yet sure if it’ll be worth the time I’m investing in it, but it’s a fun experiment and if it works out, it’ll be pretty awesome.

So far I’ve written three “lenses” (what Squidoo calls posts). Here they are if you’d like to check them out:

Best Period Movies and Mini Series

A Guide to Spending the Day in a Movie Theatre

The Jewish Holiday of Chanukah (aka Hannukah, Festival of Lights, Festival of Dedication)

        Hi Aliza! I’m looking onto Squidoo now, and checking up on Seth Godin…I don’t want to get tied in with another con-man like Mike Quoc of Factoidz.com…I’ve heard a lot of good things about Seth, and Squidoo from a writer, a very productive one, named Sara Valor…She like myself and many other founders of Factoidz.com, were ripped off by Mike Q. So, we at least know a good deal from a bad deal 🙂

        I wanted to give you the quick version of “talk” I give folks in this Internet writing business, that will keep them from getting discouraged about the {value|payoff|worth|time investment} attached to producing and posting content online:

        Think –long term. I.e.; The article you spend two hours writing, is probably worth on average, $50-$100. You will hardly ever sell one for that, because there are too many other ways for scammers to get that original content for free. But tell yourself “My time and talent is worth a living wage for my effort!”

        After you have established that fact in your head, the next step is to –be patient! This type of work isn’t like punching a clock, putting in hours, and then getting paid for them a week after the last pay period. Take two hours to create a piece of content (a lens for squidoo, for instance) and then spend more time, over the life of that piece of content, re-posting (quality spun versions) in other locations around the Web. It may take three or four years to see your ROI of time…

        $1.50 per month is an excellent rate of pay on a piece of content, that may receive 10-15 page views per day -especially if that content will have a long life span (that depends mostly on the topic) Always keep control and ownership of your content!

        Wow, Kevin, thanks so much for your kind comment, I appreciate your “talk” 😉
        In this age of immediate satisfaction it’s tough to sit back and wait, but here’s hoping it’ll be worth it in the long run!
