Your left sidebar and your lensmaster profile: You LIKE?

Posted on Aug 24 2008


How’s it going?

We’ve all had a few days now living with the new lensmaster profiles. How do you like them?

Personally, I LOVe them! We have more control than ever before over what people see when they click on our username, and we even get the whole left sidebar to ourselves. To list links to wherever we like.

If you are a weird person and you haven’t seen the changes yet, you can see my profile here:

Looks tasty, don’t you think?

To edit your left sidebar and to add your feautured lenses (which show above your big list of lenses) then head for the Profile button at the top after you log in.

Then… go wild!

Link to your websites, your blogs, your twitter page, EVERYTHING. You can really use your profile page to pull everything together.

Here’s the big question what do you think is MISSING from the new profile pages?

I would quite like to see a ‘Groups I run’ section in the right sidebar maybe. And also maybe something to do with the introduction image for each lens. But then, that would get CRAZY as you get 50+ lenses.

What do you think? What’s missing? Anything?

Maybe ‘sidebar modules’!

P.S. If you have lenses related to earning money or growing a business online, you may want to link to in your sidebar… because… We have an affiliate program there now paying a VERY high commission! And we do some great work for our customers there. Check it out at

    I love the new profile pages too! And I absolutely agree on sidebar needing a little more ‘stuff”. When you have a lot of lenses listed on your profile, all that space on the left sidebar doesn’t get used.

    They could add more services, like: Technorati, MyBlogLog, BlogCatalog, Digg, StumbleUpon, profiles, and such.
