I’ve been away a bit from Blogger and I feel a bit guilty.
A bit like when you meet someone new and you keep talking about them to your best friend, who feels just a little bit jealous of the attention the new person in your life is getting, but has to wait ’till the initial excitement passes and you return to them. (A bit like my love affair with the Kindle: it hasn’t ended but it’s gone from its Passion phase to a more content, accepting kind of phase, just as predicted by one of the comments.)
My new friend is Squidoo.
I had never heard about this site until I read a book about marketing ebooks. It’s really neat (as the Americans would say). It’s like a web within a web, where you go when you know exactly what you are looking for. Instead of pages you have “lenses” and they are made of one page, with lots of different bits to them.
And the Squidoo guys maintain it so that there is no junk, no get-rich-quick schemes, so there is a little bit of quality control.
If you take part, you get points and you go up levels etc. A lot, lot of thought has gone into making this a completely engaging experience and creating a huge following. Check the About Us page if you want to find out more about the group of brains behind this creation (headed by Seth Godin).
So, here are the lenses I’ve created. Have a look and let me know what you think.
www.squidoo.com/kindle-zen-using-your-kindle-to-make-your-life-easier (couldn’t escape this one, really.)
www.squidoo.com/inside-spain (expanding the A to Z of Spanish Culture theme).
www.squidoo.com/leadership-tips-for-managers (trying to simplify leadership).
www.squidoo.com/leading-at-a-higher-level (part of Squidlit, pages dedicated to books).
