Recipe Module Bug

Posted: 28 Sep 2013 06:35 AM PDT

Screen Shot 2013-09-23 at 8.40.25 AMWe’ve got a bug in our recipe module this morning that we’re currently working on.

I’ll post an update when this is resolved.

Though Halloween is fast approaching we’d prefer to keep the bugs out of the recipes.

Have a great Saturday.

Introducing fufurinha

Posted: 27 Sep 2013 10:36 AM PDT

Meet fufurinha, who has recently joined us from Portugal. She’s a student who enjoys sharing her varied interests and experiences with others and we’re very glad she chose to do so here on Squidoo. Please make her feel welcome.

What brought you to Squidoo? I spend a lot of my free time on the internet and, one day, in the middle of my surfing online I saw Squidoo. Something about it caught my attention and I decided to check it out better. I can’t saw that the idea of making some money didn’t attract me but I also enjoyed the idea of having an opportunity to share my thoughts online, in a free way.

You’ve been very busy making lenses since you arrived on the site. What inspires you to make a lens? What new topics can we look forward to? I am on Squidoo since the end of August (one month now) and I have 5 featured lenses. All of my lenses are about something I like and I think that’s the secret for building a good lens. When you are passionate about something, all that you write/say about it comes in a natural way.

I try to make lenses where I can share information with other people and share my opinion. Whether it is about a city, a hobby, tips to do something, and many other things. It is good to have a catching lens but it needs to have great content, something that people want to hear about.

About new topics, I don’t have any lens on my mind at the moment – my classes started so I have been a little bit busy on the last days. But sooner or later I’m going to start build something new.

What can Squidoo do for you? I’m almost new here but I can see I’ve already learned some new things. There are thousands of lens with great content here, where we can learn and share ideas.

Another great thing about Squidoo is that I am improving my English. I’m from Portugal so I don’t have a perfect English (not even close). But writing all these lenses is helping me getting better at it (I’m sorry if I have any typos or other mistakes).

Also I’m meeting new people, from all the world. I love making new friends and meeting new cultures and I hope Squidoo helps me on that.

My Best Friend Was a Ghost
