Squidoo Lens

A few months back I got the idea that I should maintain a lens on Squidoo about contemporary art quilts. I’ve been slowly adding content to the lens and while it’s far from complete I thought I’d launch it out to the world today.

I’m sure the first question you might have is "what the heck is a lens?". Well, it’s kind of a cross between a blog and wikipedia (an free online encyclopedia that anyone can add content to).

I’m not sure Squidoo and lenses will ever have a big impact in on the web but being a computer type I thought I’d give it a try. Martha Stewart has a very successful lens about cookies. And well, I’m not sure what that says about Squidoo, but I guess it says something.

So anyway check it out! My Contemporary Art Quilt Lens (www.squidoo.com/artquilts).

Let me know what you think.

And if you are inspired you can create you own lens about quilts, or fabric, or even cookies.

I checked out the squidoo…funny name…I think the geneaology list that I receive is doing something like this with family research. Now I have an idea of what they are talking about.

I love the update on your web site! Its very pleasant and not jarring to view and read.

I found it really interesting and informative. I’m mulling over the defintion of art – food for thought!
