Valentines and Anti-Valentine on Squidoo

A previous blog before this, I wrote about my Valentines Zazzle shop and my lens Valentines Cards Zazzle. This lens has my Valentine's Day card products from the three products lines which I have in Sandyspider Gifts.

More lenses have been created to cover the product lines. Here are the new lenses. Just click on the highlighted text below to go to the articles.

Valentines on Zazzle and Gifts
This is a collection of my Valentine's Day Product line. Most products in my shop offer customization with different images and text. Zazzle offers a wide variety of t-shirts and sweatshirts. The same design can be changed from a lady's to a men's t-shirt or even toddlers. Sizes range (depending on the t-shirts) from size 2 to 6X for adult shirts, with a large variety of sizes for kids and infants. Zazzle is a custom print-on-demand site. It offers Binders, Invitations, T-Shirts, Stamps, Cards, Mugs, Keds Shoes, Pet Clothing, Aprons, Tote Bags, Buttons, Hats, Keychains, Magnets, Mousepads, Posters, Stickers, Ties and more.

Vintage Valentines on Zazzle
Valentine's Day! Give someone special that vintage design gift. Some vintage pictures go back to 1923. These images have been enhanced to give them the highest quality and density possible. Vintage Valentine's Day product line has images of cupid, Victorian ladies, young love, hearts, roses, and vintage poems. See more from this lens article.

Happy Anti-Valentine's Day!
Valentine's Day is for romance, lovers and sweet friendship. It is a special day to show your appreciation and love for one another. Oh...It is a wonderful day. Until that good for nothing two timing son of a ...brighter days are around the corner when you dream of sweet revenge.

Has you heart been broken or ripped in two? Do you hear the words shouting in your ears, "No love for you?" There is no better way to express your dissatisfaction than with an anti-greeting card sent to your ex. Or maybe you are tired of all the commercialism that goes in all these stupid money grabbing holidays.

Lens Experiment Ranking Dec. 2009 to Jan 2010

I started My Top Ten Squidoo Lens Experiment in the middle of November of 2009. The experiment was to see if I could get my top ten lenses into the top tier in Squidoo. To be in the top tier in Squidoo your lens needs to be #1-2000 in lens ranking. Top payout for the month would be $13 plus any sales from Amazon or eBay. Squidoo is usually two months behind in their payouts. The last payout was for the month of October. This was the best month for me on payment. November and December hadn’t even came close to the traffic that I had been getting.

In this experiment, I asked my lab assistants (you, the reader) to help promote my lenses, by emailing 5 friends, tweeting, sharing with your Facebook friends, blogging, etc. At first this lens was updated on a daily basis. Then it became semi-weekly to finally weekly. Each update showed my top ten lenses at that time. When going into my profile page, it might look a little different than what in shown on this experiment page, depending on when the update was made..

The finally payout from Squidoo for the month of December won’t be out for a while, but it is overdue to give out some type of stats. I have to say that this experiment was harder than expected. It takes a good deal of time. In the month of January, I would like to lay back and see if my fans and friends can make my experiment explosive.

Below are the highest rank achieved for those in the last week shown in this experiment that was less than 2000 overall for Dec. to Jan. 11, 2010. I will keep you posted on the payout when it comes. Note: the best traffic inducer is earning a Lens of the Day. On January 2, 2010 my Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup lens became my first LOTD. Thanks to the Brag-A-Thon sponsored through RocketMoms. In one day, my rating had jumped from 80 to 107. As of Jan. 11, 2010, 118 have rated it.
Corn Casserole Recipe, highest rank achieved: #427 overall.
Hawaiian Christmas Ornaments, highest rank achieved: #1556 overall.
Christmas in Hawaii, highest rank achieved: #361 overall.
Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup, highest rank achieved: #32 overall.
Christmas Tree History and More, highest rank achieved: #1027 overall.

Finally, my top ten is really top eleven when you count this lens.
My Top Ten Squidoo Lens Experiment, highest rank achieved: #1315 overall.

Thank you for joining me in this experiment. Please keep coming back for this is on going Squidoo experiment. If you are not part of Squidoo you can Join Here!

Valentines Cards Zazzle

Right before Christmas was here, I knew it was time to get my Valentines products on Zazzle in order. At the time I only had one product line called Happy Anti-Valentine's Day! I started this from a contest that was going on at CafePress. Then carried it over to Zazzle.

Not everyone is suffering from a broken heart. There was a need to start a shop for those who are in love or in like as one of my cards says. So now there are two other product lines. Vintage Valentine’s Day and Valentine's Day

Visit my Valentines Cards Zazzle lens and add your own shop and lenses to the plexo. Sign the guestbook (of course rating and favoring it is a plus) and you don't have to be a Squidoo member to sign the guestbook or add your Zazzle shop. But I do have a pet peeve. Many of my lenses do not have a pre-approval added to the plexos. This may soon change. Too many people add to these plexos and don't even sign the guestbook. To me this is rude. I always sign the guestbooks and usually favor and rate lenses.

If you would like to know more about Zazzle just send me a message.

Chicken Noodle Soup Purple Star and LOTD

Recently I received a Purple Star for Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup I was so happy. Ever since the beginning, I had wanted to receive a Lens of the Day. Maybe now that it finally received a Purple Star it will get noticed.

Shortly after this RocketMoms were having the very first Brag-A-Thon. This involved bragging about one of your lenses and one of another RocketMom you thought was LOTD worthy. My Chicken Soup lens was chosen as the very first RocketMoms LOTD on Jan. 2, 2010. You can read about it on our group leader's blog at Day 1 "RocketMoms Brag-A-Thon" Lens of the Day: Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup Read the about the upcoming RocketMoms LOTD for there as well.

This recipe lens has been the first in many things for me. It is my own creation that was never written down on paper before. It has a secret (no longer a secret) ingredient that gave it that tangy taste. We added on our first YouTube video and of course the first time I was able to get my family involved in one of my internet activities. Below is the video we made. To see the written recipe, go to Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup Even non-Squidoo members are welcome to visit and leave a comment. Join my fan club in both Squidoo and YouTube.
