But honestly, I am jazzed that so many people are enjoying the post! It really gives me a great feeling.

FYI, Squidoo organizes their lenses by subject/Topic into three levels/sub-levels.  Here is where I rank from most specific to most general…

If you will indulge me… I’m going to brag just a bit

Keep the rotten tomatoes handy in case my head gets TOO Big…

I iz Awesome ©2011One of the things I’ve been doing to create new income, since losing my job, is to write online.

The first actual money from this writing won’t show up until August, but all in all, I think it is shaping up into a very nice endeavor.

In case you were wondering, yes, there are people who actually do make money at it.  If you’re curious and want some cold hard statistics check out Greekgeek’s Squidoo Stats.

But I digress…  Back to that bragging thing…  😉

I Feel Special! — Someone Blogged about “Moi”

Just a really quick post to share this comment that I got on my guest book over on my Squidoo Profile Page / Lens List:

Profile PHoto for GreekGeek “Howdy Tex! I’m a damyankee, but my Mum was born in Tyler, so I smile a little wider when I see your username.

You asked me a good question the other day on my Zazzle graphics tutorial. I finally got around to answering it in my usual long-winded fashion on my Squidoo blog, here:

Ok, ok, so she really isn’t blogging about ME…  How-EV-UR!  I did prompt an entire blog post by another blogger with my humble innocent question..  Woo Hoo! Yeeeee Haww!  Uh-huh…  [doing a happy dance at my computer while I type one-handed and make circles in the air with my fist with the other hand]   I’d post a picture of this but I’m still on cup of coffee number one, I’d need three hands to be able to do all that and take the picture at the same time PLUS my hair is still in pre-shower stick out at all angles just got out of bed mode.  Not. A. Pretty. Picture.  But I digress…  I do that a lot actually.  Hmmm…  Moving on…  😉

Weekly Feature Added, Morning Coffee, and Being Self-Employed

I’m Writing Over at too!

TxCowboyDancer on Squidoo ©Well, I think I’m finally getting the hang of writing on  Whew!  And one of the things I learned is that I can’t post exactly the same article here on my blog and on Squidoo.   So from time to time I’ll post a short blurb here to highlight what I wrote there.


I feel your pain.  My Inner Domestic Diva has gone back to bed and is cuddling with her bon-bons.

When you think about it for a couple of moments, though, it makes sense.  Squidoo is a business, they are there to make money to keep things running, pay the staff, and then donate the rest of it to charity so they don’t want duplicate content.  They want the original stuff.  The first run top-notch garbanzo beans.  The primo coffee as it were.     If  I were writing an article for a newspaper or magazine then I’d only be able to publish it in one place. Squidoo has no problem sharing the wealth in the interest of attracting high quality original content.  Which is where I come in.  I write, I attract readers, I get a share of the $$.


Which brings me to an interesting point.   I’m having great fun writing this BUT, I’m not doing it just for fun…
