Squidoo is THE place to create lenses. A lens is a creative web page and at Squidoo you can create as many as you like. You can write about anything you want, add anything your heart desires. It's a great place to create a directory of your work if you are an article writer, highlight your greatest photos for you photographers, write informative how-to's for those that want to help others learn. If you can imagine it Squidoo gives you the tools to create it creatively.
If you are involved in affiliate marketing Squidoo allows you to add your own products to your lens. You could write reviews about your affiliate products, or if you sell your own products its a great place to show off your stuff too.
Squidoo was created by Seth Godin, and has been around for quite some time. This wonderful and very fun site has been paying it's members every month for five years!
It's a great way to build your online credibility, build your profile, and have fun while earning money online.
I don't currently actively work on lenses, however I have created over 80 and I have 55 that actively earn me money while I passively sit by. Once you've created a lens, it will earn you money for the life of the lens, which means as long as you don't delete it you can earn money from it.
You will see (when you click on the photos above) that during the time I've been a member at Squidoo I've earned a total of $38.84. Squidoo also allows you to donate a portion of your earnings to your favorite charity and there is a widget which you can add to your lens asking other people to donate to a charity as well. I haven't been a big contributor to charity yet, but I am planning on it.
