Vlogging Challenge Day 19 – Some Work Some Play

Squidoo Creations & Watching Jack Reacher

Today was filled with three tasks.

  • The Squick Squidoo Challenge
  • New Video for the Vlogging Challenge
  • Going to the Cinema Challenge

The Squick Squidoo Challenge

Today I continued on with the Squick Squidoo Challenge.

I am so happy to report that I completed 5 lenses and the average time to put them together was around 18-20 minutes.

It makes a huge difference if you do all the prep work in advance.

Britt Malka, who wrote this guide book and is running the case study/challenge, recommended creating all the templates at the same time and adding the modules.

Then all you have to do is quickly write that first paragraph, grab the ebay and Amazon links and you are away.

I used Squidoo’s Amazon links this time, instead of using Squidcrafter.  If the lenses start to show signs of positive money making potential, I can update them later.

Today’s lenses are as follows:

Baby Doll Diaper Bag

Baby Doll Carrier

Beach Tents for Babies

Metal Loft Bed with Desk

Whilte Loft Bed with Desk

I also want to thank everyone who has taken the time to visit these lenses and given them some lens love.  Thank you for the support.

New Video for the Vlogging Challenge – Day 19

Here’s the lastest video for this challenge. I am slowly working away, in order to get to video number 30.

Going to the Cinema Challenge

OK, this wasn’t really a challenge.  I went to watch the new Tom Cruise film, Jack Reacher. The storyline was interesting but the film, not so much.  It was a weird mixture of action film / thriller, with a little bit of odd sexual tension between Tom and Rosamund Pike’s lawyer character.  There was the odd laugh to be had too but the whole thing felt like a Bourne Identity Lite movie.

The one advantage of watching this film is that I would be interested in picking up a copy of the book that it is based on. It felt like a lot of the story had to be squashed or eliminated in order to reduce the film length to an acceptable level.  This could therefore be another reason why I felt that it was a little underwhelming.  Great cast of people but a so-so end result.

Have Your Say:  I would love to know what anyone else thought of the movie.  Please share your thoughts below.
