Senior Geek Squids

There's a growing base of Squidooers over 55 - technically, they're "seniors" and are using technology in their everyday lives. Hey, if you build a Squidoo lens you have some comfort and familiarity with a computer. And if you're a baby boomer like me, you've probably got plenty of life experience to talk/write about - that's perfect for making Squidoo lenses.

I started a Squidoo group for this special group of lensmasters - Senior Geek Squids - to organize and showcase lensmasters who are "older" but not old, who have grandkids perhaps or have built a lens or ten about topics related to being a senior, being a grand, and how we boomer lensmasters use techology (and Squidoo) to make life easier and more interesting in the days before computers became essential home appliances.

If you are a Squidoo lensmaster and over 55 (or a lensmaster who's a grandparent) you can join the Senior Geek Squid group.

What's Squidoo? It's a place where you can easily build a web page (or 1000 unique pages) about anything you like in less than 60 seconds. Squidoo is the world's easiest way to make a page online. Share your interests, get found, and even earn money. (For you or for charity). For free, of course. No hassles, easy widgets to help you create sections, and lots of guidance you can use to make your lenses popular, interesting and lucrative.

Join Squidoo - click here with my personal recommendation. I'm a Squidoo lensmaster, and I'm inviting you to join me. Find and share recommendations online by building a lens. Over 55? After you build a lens, join the Senior Geek Squids.
