Squidoo is Dead and Zujava Took a Hit Too – Goodbye!

frustration.gifIt’s a bad week for people who write for 3rd party sites like Squidoo. We got some news from both Squidoo and Zujava that really show why it’s important to have your own site.

Let’s talk about them both and how I’ll personally be dealing with the changes.

Squidoo Has Been Sold to HubPages

I always loved Squidoo. The people there were cool and the environment was always fun and light hearted. Then things started to change. They got more strict with their rules (which is fine). Then they started locking lenses left and right that used to be considered fine. I lost a lot. I was angry but it’s their system.

Zujava Challenge Day 5

Hey guys! I wanted to check in and let you guys know what I’ve been up to and where I am on the Zujava challenge. I’m currently one day behind on the Zujava challenge but I’ll be caught up before bed. I realized a little too late that I forgot about my weekly Squidoo lens though! I’m still kay because I made extras last week, but I’ve gotta make sure to remember that this week.

Here are the three new Zujava leaves I made.

February Zujava Challenge – Day 1

Today is the first day of the February Zujava challenge where I’ll be creating 28 Zujava leaves in 28 days. I decided that I’ll also be posting here each day to share my leaf and the other things I do each day. I liked doing this before but I backed off. I’ll still be doing some pure information type posts though, so don’t feel like I’m forgetting about them!

zujava-signup-badge-horizon-468-v1First I’ll give you an update on everything else that’s been going on lately.

Vlog: Zujava February, Squidoo Challenge Reminder, and More

Hey everyone! This post is mostly just to update you on what’s been going on. Between my back and being out all day Saturday my sleep schedule is all messed up and my days are running together but I’m getting things together and the last few days have been more productive than ever! I brainstormed a ton of great blog post ideas and have been writing them so I’ve got some great informational posts lined up for you and I’ll post some vlogs in between. It’ll give me more time to work on my Squidoo guide and my opt-in report. (Thanks to Bonnie for helping me come up with a great idea!)

I mentioned Zujava recently in this post about the best guide for making money on Zujava. I checked the forums a few days ago and Zujava is having a little challenge in February I’ll be joining in on and I wanted to extend an invite to all of you!

It’s a bit of a tall order but it’s perfect for those of you who want to jump in and establish yourself on Zujava or just add a bunch of extra leaves. The goal is 28 Zujava leaves in 28 days. You can do one a day or you can sit down and do 10 in one day, your choice. I’ll likely be doing one a day and, of course, I’ll share them with you and give you a chance to share yours.
