Hello--I just joined this comm; and I am relatively new to Squidoo as well. I started things up there soon after following a link from my Cafepress account.
I began making lenses primarily to promote my Cafepress shops; and now have lenses for Artifacts of the Lair, The LithicLair: Neolithic LairShop, Eireann85 (which features Irish scenic shots from my two trips there, in 1984-85, and 2006); All Bunnyz, All the Time; and my one Premium shop, The Lair of Cards. Now, I just have to figure out how to draw more traffic to these first five lenses. Is there some secret to increasing traffic to lenses in order to increase traffic to Cafepress shops, I wonder...??
I've been doing better, so far, with my more recent lenses about Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Oscar Wilde on the Internet, and Busking in Seattle. Of course, I'm planning on creating more besides these; there are still plenty of topics that don't have lenses (not many, at least) written about them yet.
Anyway, I just thought I'd introduce myself here; I'm also a member of cafepressowners; and am interested on talking shop and online marketing/promotion at both comms...
