Introducing Healinghands123

Posted: 20 May 2014 05:51 AM PDT

Lensmaster healinghands123 on SquidooWe’re pleased to introduce RocketSquid healinghands123 today. Here’s what we learned about her from our recent interview:

How did you find Squidoo? I found Squidoo by mistake! I wasn’t looking for it, nor had I ever heard of it. I was, however, doing a Google search for something (cannot remember exactly what the topic was) and landed right in Squidoo’s lap. I recall the article being excellently written, so much so, that I was compelled to check out the website. And… here I am!

Of the lenses you’ve made so far, which is your favorite and why? My favorite lens thus far is the one I submitted for the RocketSquid “Tiny Challenge.” It’s called Matlacha – A Tiny Artist Enclave! It was such a colorful place and so much fun to do. It’s ironic since I’m usually a very serious person. Can’t tell you the number of times I’ve heard, “Glenda, lighten up.” I’m a ‘seasoned citizen’ now, so perhaps as I age I’ve learned how to chill.

What one tip would you give to a new lensmaster starting out? My one tip for new lensmasters is easy. Be yourself – not a carbon copy! I’m a minister, and when I preach, I admonish people with this saying all the time; “If you and I were exactly alike, God wouldn’t need one of us!”

Check out healinghands123′s fast-growing list of lenses on her profile page. If you have fewer than 25 lenses and would like to join other movers and shakers on RocketSquids, and perhaps land an interview spot here on SquidooHQ, we’d love to have you! Simply fill out this form to apply.

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Mike Speegle about the writing of his newest book, Something Greater Than Artifice, which has already been turned into a graphic novel, a stage play and has been musically inspirational as well.
