Oh! Squidoo AND a Blog…

I swear sometimes I must be the slowest person on the planet. I know when I joined Squidoo, I read all kinds of tips on promoting your lenses and a biggie was to blog about them. What I didn’t realize was that, in return, your lenses could also help your blog. At least, I think that could be the case. I’m still new to the whole blogging thing so stick with me here while I think this through, but last night, while working away on research for a lens, I noticed something – something I hadn’t seen before.

A Learning Curve or a Jagged Line?

Anytime I’ve tackled something new or different, whether a new assignment at work or a new online project, I go through a period I can only describe as a state of confusion. What do I need to know?

Automate Web Tasks With iOpus iMacro

I already have a busy schedule – who doesn’t? But when I add Squidoo to the mix, it gets a little crazy. Squidoo is a website that allows you to create your own lenses (web pages) about topics of interest to you. I joined in February 2009 and between this blog, Squidoo, and a few other internet projects, I’ve developed a list of sites that I need to log in to each time I sit down at the computer to work. The spreadsheet I was using to keep track of my passwords just wasn’t cutting it – a great way to store my passwords so I wouldn’t forget them, but it still took some time each day to bring up all those sites and log in. This little tool cuts all that log in time to just a few seconds.

I feel like I just moved into a new house. I just updated my blog “theme” and that’s no easy task if you have no idea what you’re doing. It still needs work but pretend I’ve just emptied the boxes and haven’t quite got the dishes actually in the cupboards yet. Just take my word for it, this blog looks very different from what it looked like earlier today. Sadly, I put this blog up over a month ago and I still had my default links hanging out for all the world to see. Not that the world has been by to visit. I did have one visitor and he couldn’t even leave a comment because I hadn’t quite figured out how to set those up.

I think comments are enabled now. I think.
