Making Topaz Jewellery

| July 31, 2009

Feeling slightly better this morning so I got this one off the backburner:Making Topaz Jewelleryhttp://www.squidoo.com/topaz-jewellery-makingIt covers making jewellery using backset pendants, (a type of prong setting) where to get supplies and Topaz stones and cabochons for practicing. It is part of a series fetauring my other jewellery making lenses on claw settings and snaptite. I […]

A new lens

| July 30, 2009

Apologies for quality. I am still down with flu, still wishing it would go away, and still stuck with the deadline to get a book lens done by tomorrow or wash out on the Summer School Challenge. http://www.squidoo.com/633-squadron-operation-valkyrie – one of the sequels to 633 Squadron.At least the flu gives me an excuse to take […]

Top 100 badge

| July 29, 2009

A 20×20 set of pixels makes my day. The new Top 100 badge is up on all the Giant 100 Squid lenses. http://www.squidoo.com/tirial-badge – what can I say, look on the top right under my bio picture.

Down with flu

| July 28, 2009

Down with flu Taking a break from lens/articles/things in general until it clears. Sorry.I’ll leave you with this: http://www.squidoo.com/support-a-day-of-hopeA lens I did last night, testing out ways to make supporting a charity by lenscrafting more appealing. And all its royalties go to A Day of Hope.

A new lens and update

| July 27, 2009

I’ve added the “discovery module” to my hatching game lenses and jewellery lenses. Lets see if it works. Even if they restore the discovery module I might leave these up – it’s definitely had an effect (my average lensrank jumped from 240K to 130K). Two new lenses went live this morning, but I still have […]

Make your own discovery Module

| July 24, 2009

Hopefully this is soon to be redundant if Squidoo bring back their own official module. However this is how to produce the “Discovery Module” I have been using for my test. My Video games lenses have gained a box that looks like this:Other Relevant Lenses:Console Game Reviews, Suikoden IV, Ico – Ueda’s classic game, Dark […]

Discovery module test update & new lens

| July 23, 2009

Discovery ModuleI couldn’t resist so I added it to a few more lenses, and am waiting to see the results. However it looks like Squidoo might be bringing it back themselves (announced on Squidu today!) which will save a lot of time on trying to code the thing to automatically pull in the right lenses.New […]

New lens: Topaz Jewellery

| July 22, 2009

A new lens done – it’s yet another jewellery one because I am not up to writing large pieces of original content at the moment (or I’d probably be doing bukisa articles instead of lenses!)Zimbio seems to be working at rather well in terms of traffic, so I will have to sit down and write […]

Projects updates

| July 21, 2009

Discovery ModuleMy CSS box has been up on all the video lenses for one day, and already seems to be having an effect. The pages have had slightly more traffic than I expected, which seems to be cross-lens from the box itself. I’ve tried it in a range of places on different lenses and its […]

Discovery Modules

| July 20, 2009

The Mossie one was more successful than I thought, and I only rolled it out this morning. As a result, I’m doing a full test of a discovery-style module on the video games lenses.(e.g. Dark Cloud) Since I haven’t changed these lenses for a few months they are all fairly stable in traffic terms. This […]
