Cash Flow from Squidoo

Check out this email I just received from Squidoo. I just am constructing my lens and have already made a little dough for the Juvenile Diabetes Fund. It’s not much but I haven’t really worked on this yet…but you may want to join me and choose a charity of your choice. Thanks, Steve

Hi, Steve!

It’s time for your first Squidoo paycheck.

(NB: If you got a cryptic one-liner email from us about this yesterday, please disregard it. Our computers went a little batty!)

We’re just out of beta, and we’re betting no one is going to retire on their lens earnings. But already some of you have earned as much as $30 (dinner for two!). Others have earned about $1. And still others have pooled their money to send thousands of dollars to places like Room to Read, which helps build schools for children in developing countries.

Chances are that what you’re seeing now is just a drop in the bucket. If you’re more interested in spreading ideas and traffic than making money, just send your share to a charity, where every bit counts. Or, check out SquidU’s tips for upping your earnings:

Below you’ll find a statement of your money earned from March 1 to March 31, 2006. Probably not on par with the lottery, but at least you can enjoy a cup of coffee on us.

    Three cents?! That should be enough for about a thimble full of coffee 🙂 Seems like you’d have to spend a whole lot of time on Squidoo to make it worth your while. I would rather spend my time blogging, anyway.

    Do both-The three cents is literally for me just setting up the page, I’ve not invested any more time…but what a great charity!

    And if EVERYBODY donated 3 cents to the charity….hmmmmmmm…it adds up! (Read my post on, speaking of three cents!)
