What exciting news I received yesterday in my email! I have been chosen by the staff at Squidoo to be a Giant Squid! Yes, ME! PotPieGirl! What an honor! See that over there ——> That is my honorary Giant Squid badge!
They like me…they really like me! (ok, sorry for the old Sally Field thing…haha)
I have a pretty good feeling that most of you reading this are totally UNimpressed, aren’t you? What the heck IS a Giant Squid, anyway? and WHY is this PotPieGirl chick all happy to be chosen to BE one?
Ok, I hear ya – so let me back up a bit.
There has been a super secret competition going on within a select few lensmasters. Squidoo sent out invitations to a couple hundred of us that challenged us each to create more lenses and to try and have 100 or more high-quality lenses on our dashboard.
When I received the invitation, I took a long look at my dashboard and I “only” had 50+ – worse yet, I simply didn’t have the time to mass-create more lenses at that time. Heck I am so busy teaching others how to make money with Squidoo thru my Squidoo Profit System and the follow up help (let alone the lenses I am contracted out to create), there was no way I could create that many more lenses on top of the rest of it!
So, regretfully, I had to let the opportunity to be a Giant Squid slide. I haven’t thought too much about it lately as I’ve been so, so busy elsewhere.
Then – out of the clear blue sky – I get an email from Squidoo yesterday.
Congratulations! You have been chosen to join the Giant Squids, our elite squad of the best and most prolific lensmasters on Squidoo. We’re nothing short of honored to be working with you.
Then it went on to list all the super secret goodies I get for being chosen for this honor (and it’s some real good stuff, too!). However, I imagine I’m not supposed to talk about the goodies.
So, how many lensmasters were honored with this recognition? My last check at the super secret Giant Squid blog showed me a count of about 25 or so that have responded.
All I can say is that this PotPieGirl is truly honored to be recognized by the Squidoo owner (thank you Seth Godin) and the entire Squidoo staff (that means you, too, Megan!) for this recognition as one of their best lensmasters.
I have worked hard on Squidoo and have also worked doubly hard to get others to this fantastic site AND teach them how to properly create high-quality Squidoo lenses with the Squidoo Profit System.
