As part of an online presence, we've been involved creating Squidoo lenses for the past couple of years. We've created lenses on all the angles. Lenses on famous people, our personal beliefs, charity, Squidoo tips, SEO, and much more. All said, 235 lenses, and manage 20 groups. I think we've published a lens about everything except our personal story. If we were to do our personal story, I hope we place as much passion into it as Whit did. Consider taking a few minutes out of your day and reading her story. I suspect you will be as blessed and encouraged as I was.

Hello, I came over from Barbara's Blogging without a Blog site after I saw your comment and wondered if you might be in the Wash. Kennewick?

Yes, you are...I was wandering around your site and found it very interesting.

I am located in Olympia and am married to an architect - I am technically challenged ( don't know what a squido lens is and am barely on Twitter) but I did just give my husband a blog for Christmas -

We are attempting to get a discussion going like a mastermind group about Green Design and how to get clients to take it seriously.

My youngest daughter is a senior at EWU and was just in Kennewick for a Superbowl party at her best friend's home!

Thought I would make a connection...thank you for you interesting site.

Yup, Kennewick Washington it is Patricia. Regarding green design. I have a few article ready to publish about green building. Lately, green real estate has been a hot item these days.

Btw, it's "" lol Your husband's blog is looking cool, especially the nifty graphic you guys have at the top.

Thank you, my oldest daughter is the designer, I just write and keep hubby going...The Washington State AIA folks are all signing on to the Architecture2030 challenge...lots of Green talk, because it will take about 50% of the energy use out of buildings and would cut the carbon emissions by 40% That would make us not dependent on foreign oil and it would increase the jobs sector by 1.6 million jobs...I just can't explore this subject enough!

I'll be back - thank you C I left out the C!

It seems that she had it pretty tough but no matter what she never lost her faith, not even when pressed by her family. This must have been very hard for a young girl. It also seems that she made some wrong choices but all the while God was with her, and it only made her stronger.

I'd like to ask a quick question. I was reading that you earn money from creating Squidoo lenses, and that the more you create the more money you can make. With so many lenses, are you making good money, or does it depend on how advertising goes on each lens?

Well, some folks have made quite a bit (do a Google search for &quot;captain squid 1000&quot;), however, most of our earning we donated to charity. In fact, I blogged about it a few months ago <a href="" rel="nofollow">here</a>.
