    Excellent advise as always.

  2. JaguarJulie says:

    Lewis, wow — what fabulous advice. I was just talking about what a great incentive it is to be a Giant Squid, particularly Giant Squid 100 Club, as the more GREAT, quality-minded lenses a lensmaster creates, the more possibility for earning better royalties. You seem to have your finger on the pulse. Thanks for such a valuable blog post.

    Truly superb advice. I’d add be honest to yourself and who you are.

    Such good advise, Lewis. Isn’t it strange how when you get right down to it, the best advise is both very simple and very hard at the same time.

    Indeed simple but practical advice which needs some sustained effort also at the same time for growing in squidoo.

      I just started with Squidoo and plan to use it for Internet marketing niche ventures. I found your site via a Google search and it is an excellent find.

  22. Collette says:

    I also have another website but I get more traffic to my blog than my website. I love your tips I was looking for someone like you as I’m only new here and I watch my lenses deteriorate every day I search through Ebay looking for things that I think are relevant and then I go back and there gone. I have subscribed by email so will be awaiting your tips thanks for having your page
