I am taking part in Rocket Squids, a “boot camp” for new Squidoo Lensmasters which includes writing weekly challenge lenses. Recently the theme was gadgets and involved writing a product review. The only gadget I could think of was a pizza cutter. Bob and I brainstormed a bit and came up with uses for a pizza cutter than just cutting pizza. I put a father’s day spin on it, hit the publish button with a little fear and trembling and submitted it to Rocket Squids for review.
Who would have thought an article on pizza cutters would not only actually sell pizza cutters but also drawing my highest traffic, comments and squid likes for this particular lens in addition to being mentioned in a Squidoo training article. If I had followed my gut and not written this because it was “not what I write” I would have missed out on the experience, the exposure and the chance to earn a few pennies.
Sometimes when we step out and take a chance the results are beyond what we could have imagined. Read Why You Should Buy Dad a Pizza Cutter for Father’s Day.
