23 Squidoo

It's quick, it's easy, it's informative, it's fun! Squidoo is a website that allows anyone with a passion and some expertise in their field to create a page or "Lens" to share information on any topic(s) that tickle(s) their fancy. Cheaper than a website (free in fact), more comprehensive than a blog and socially conscious to boot! Squidoo donates the first %5 percent of their profits (raised through ad space) to charities. After keeping 45% for overhead, they then give the remaining 50% to the LensMasters or to charity, whichever the LensMaster prefers! 

There are so many lenses (more than 700,000 pages) that it would take a lifetime to check them all out, but here are some really great ones that you might love to peruse. Many of these lenses have links to other helpful lenses (it's like a pyramid scheme of information) so be sure to read the whole page.

Happy Surfing!
