Do you Squiddoo?

If you've never seen anything like this, check out www.squiddoo.com. I created a "lens" at the urging of a business associate, and it's quite interesting to see the "experts" on various subjects.

For me, I've set up a lens titled, "Getting Ahead at Work," and filled it with career advice from various sources (including myself), interviews, helpful career books (including my own) and other Web sites (did I mention I included my own?)

The Squiddoo "Lensmasters'" interests range from Audrey Hepburn to cats to woodworking to engineering...there's something for everyone. Have a career you feel passionately about and would like to share your expertise? Or, have a product or service that you would like to promote? Try this out -- it's a good way to get your presence known in the increasingly competitive Internet world. Just make sure you do your homework and create something that reflects positively on you as a professional.

Aloha Anita. Just wanted to let you know I don't think your link box to your Squidoo lens is working. Could be my computer, but all your other links worked just fine. I am interested in how people are Squidooing.... Also, Very good blog. very insightful..

Annie,
Thanks for the heads up -- I fixed the link. I haven't done much with the Squidoo lens since I created it. I just don't think it's the best use of my time or resources. Many thanks on the kind words about my blog...hope you'll visit often.
