Squidoo Quizzes Are Fun And Earn You Points Too

The Quiz module on Squidoo allows you to create your own quizzes, that can have anywhere from ONE to TWENTY questions, and every quiz that you answer earns you points that enable you to climb up the Levels in Squidoo.

I recently created two Quiz lenses, which I hope you have a chance to visit and to test your General Knowledge.

The first lens is December Quizzes, which is a set of 10 quizzes with 3 questions each, all with a December theme.  They are not too hard, well hopefully not, and will earn you at least 100 points on Squidoo.

The second is a little different, as I wanted to break the mould with this one.  Movie Riddles gives you clues to some well known movies, but the clues are in rhyme.  Can you solve the riddles and figure out which movies they are referring to?  You won’t get as many points for this one, but I guarantee you will have fun puzzling over the movies.  These are perfect for solving with a friend too, as sometimes two heads are better than one.

I hope you enjoy these, and if I left you wondering what Squidoo is – it’s a Free to join web site that allows it’s members “lensmasters” to create web pages about specific topics (“lenses” because they have a focus), and you can earn money from these, as well as make lots of new friends from around the world.  Click Here to learn more about Squidoo.

Music Quizzes By Decade

If you are a music trivia buff, you will want to take a shot at this set of quizzes I created for your enjoyment.  The main Song To Artist Quiz has a ten question section for each decade from the 1950s-1990s.  If that isn’t enough music trivia quizzes for you, there are additional quiz pages for each decade:

Quiz: Song To Artist – 50s Music
Quiz: Song To Artist – 60s Music
Quiz: Song To Artist – 70s Music
Quiz: Song To Artist – 80s Music
Quiz: Song To Artist – 90s Music

I had a great deal of fun writing all of these song trivia quizzes.  My hope is that you will try your hand at taking a few of them.  If you haven’t taken the time to write a quiz under the SquidQuiz platform, I highly encourage you to try it.

What’s your favorite musical decade?

 

Moshi Monsters Gets Kids Involved in Squidoo

Are you a Moshi Monsters fan?  My girls are fans.  Moshi Monsters is an on-line game with an educational bend to it.  Like so many of the games today it is free, with a membership option.  Members have more activities and options available to them.  We have always been free members and the girls have never (well almost never) complained.

My girls decided they wanted to write a Squidoo lens, like me – Pukeko, their mom. Our first step was to get permission. I enquired about kids on Squidoo and was told that they can’t have their own account, but the can write on mine as long as I supervise. That was easy, we just incorporated it into our homeschooling.

So following the excellent advice I was given – write what you know, the girls went to work last year on their pages. First Melissa wrote a page on How To Play Moshi Monsters. She describes the process for beginners and for intermediates. I was really impressed, and then according to her, I went ahead a wrecked it by adding a bit of SEO and minimization. I call it “under my supervision.”

At the same time Sarah decided to write a Moshi Monsters quiz. Actually, it was not just one, Sarah actually wrote two short quizzes – one for kids like her who play the game. And the other for over protective parents like me who have to check out all of the safety aspects of any on-line activity before I allow my children to use them. So quiz number two addresses all of my concerns (which I am happy to report, Moshi Monsters passed my scrutiny.)

To tie in with their lens I made a Calling All Monster and Moshi Monster Moshling Fans! page.

If you check out either of their pages, be sure to leave the girls a comment.
