Tolovaj and Picture Books (Six months, huh?)
Hi, this is my first post here. It is appropriate to introduce myself, so…
I am from Ljubljana, Slovenia and I learnt English many years ago, so it is a bit rusty. But I think it is getting better and better and Squidoo has a lot to do with it.
I joined Squidoo mostly to promote my basic web site and after thinking about possibilities of getting quality backlinks, it was first on my list. The main reason was ability to write in Slovene language. One of two goals of my web site is selling picture books. Here is the quick look of our store:
Cute, right? Because there are mostly picture books (others are books for slightly older children), my first posts on squidoo were about picture books (in Slovene language slikanice from slika = picture):
Despite the fact they are written in Slovene, thoses lenses got some visit from Squidoo (22 and 26 SquidLikes so far) and of course from our local search engine google.si. But overall numbers were not impressive (maybe ten visits a week altogether). So I had to decide: to put more energy on promotion (what is hard, established directories in Slovenia does not allow Squidoo lenses to be entered and my only blog wit PR is all set on nofollow) or write more lenses.
Being a writer, not SEO master, decision was obvious. More in my postst. I am sure there will be many occasions. I just received a cake for my first six months on Squidoo. I believe in next six months I will be still here. And right now I am already on level 79, what means I am not just a little squid anymore:)
