Farewell, Squidoo

It is with a heavy heart that I write that Squidoo will be no more. Squidoo has been the home of my online articles for 8 years, one of the best online writing platforms on the web, and a fun, supportive community that I and my fellow writers on the site will miss terribly. I have been very honored to be the official Squidoo Contributor for the Bangles, Baubles and Beads niche, and I will forever be grateful to Seth Godin, Megan Casey, Corey Brown, Gil Hildebrand, Bonnie Diczhazy, Robin Svedi, Susan Deppner, Stephanie Mangino, and the many people who made Squidoo a truly remarkable place.

Now I have to make some difficult decisions about where to move my more than 70 articles that currently reside on Squidoo. HubPages will be acquiring some of Squidoo's content, and I plan to move many of my articles there. But not all of my articles are a good fit for HubPages, and I may well be moving some of my jewelry making articles here, my recipe articles elsewhere, and the rest of my articles to still other sites. I promise to let everyone know as soon as I do where they can find my content in the future.

In the short term, until all the jewelry making articles I've linked to from this blog have found new homes, some of them may be temporarily inaccessible. If so, I apologize sincerely in advance. I will do my best to get my content relocated and update the links accordingly. In the interim, I hope you will understand and hang in there with me through the transition period.

Many thanks for your support!



  1. Oh No! That is such a shame - although I may not always comment, I continue to follow many of the articles posted in Squidoo - the metal clay ones helped me considerably; as has many others. I look forward to hearing where you will be relocating your fabulous articles. Thank you to yourself and everyone involved, it will be missed.

    1. Hi Caron! What a wonderful comment! You're a real sweetheart. I apologize for the delay in replying; for some reason Blogger stopped sending me notifications when I received comments on my blog. The good news is that I have transferred all of my metal clay articles from Squidoo over to HubPages, and although revising them so that the formatting looks right, the missing content is replaced and anything that violates their rules is fixed will take considerable time and effort, so far it's looking as though they all will have a (hopefully permanent) new home over at HubPages. :)
