My Squidoo Lens Got a Purple Star

I'm really happy to report that my Squidoo lens Modern Gray Nursery Ideas - Grey Is The New Green  got a Purple Star! Are you wondering what is that? Purple Star is given by Squidoo team for fantastic and original content. If you got it, it means you have created a really awesome lens! To be honest, I was surprise that my lens was good enough to be awarded with a Purple Star. It means that someone actually like my work. Yay! Twinkle, twinkle Purple Star, hope to get another one!

30 Squidoo Lenses Challenge

I just finished my first goal of making money writing on Squidoo. I set up myself a challenge to publish 5 new lenses in about a week so I would have 30 Squidoo pages until the end of the year. I'm proud to say I did it!

Here there are:
Adorable Baby Boy Nurseries
Gorgeous Baby Girl Nurseries
Gender Neutral Nursery 
Beautiful Turquoise Nursery
Tree Decals For Nursery Wall

My advice to all Squidoo newbies: make a plan, set up realistic goals for yourself (one at the time) and take action! If I can do it, you can do it, too!

 Happy New Year!

My Squidoo Earnings

My Squidoo earnings are growing every month! As I said in my previous post, I came back on Squidoo last month and updated my lenses after a whole year. I  made some new ones, as well. Can wait to see what will happen in a few months! Here is a screenshot of my Squidoo earnings with 11 published lenses.

Squidoo was working for me while I was away. Nice, don't you think?

This month was payday for Squidoo earnings made in October. I'm happy to see that I have received $25.67 on my PayPal account. Stay tuned, I will update.

Welcome back to Squidoo!

I have been a member on Squidoo since November 6 2011. I joined there with a wish to earn money so I can be a work at home mom. After creating my first page - Mom On A Squidoo Mission, I made 11 more lenses but left in January because of the health problems in the family. My baby boy had a lump on his neck, a thyroglossal duct cyst that needed to be operated as soon as possible. I was so scared! Surgery went well but he got bad burns on his legs from the machine that kept him worm during the procedure.We were in the hospital for over a month. Luckily,  recovery was fast and now he is a healthy 20 month old little boy.

During that time and a couple of months after, I concentrated on spending time with my kids. I didn't wrote a single page on Squidoo. I got back in November 2012, a year ago since I joined there. I was surprised to see that my Squidoo earnings reached 99$! While I was away, my Squidoo lenses were working for me. Maybe 99$ isn't a lot of money, but I saw a potential and decided to treat Squidoo like a real job.

This blog is about my journey of making money writing on Squidoo and I hope you will enjoy reading my posts. Merry Christmas to my friends on Squidoo and all the writers out there that are still looking for their path. Good luck!
