How To Review Your Own Lens Development Progress

I found a cool tool today and I wonder if other people are aware of it? I was able to organize all my lenses by the creation date, from the very first lens I ever made until the most recent. Why was it cool? It allowed me to review my own Squidoo development progress. It allowed me to take a walk down my own Squidoo Memory Lane.

It will be two years this month since I started with Squidoo and I had forgotten which was the first, the second, tenth, twentieth lens. It was interesting to line them up and click on each and see how my lens making skills had changed. What tool allowed me to do this?

The tool I am talking about is found on Squidutils. Login and click on your Advanced Dashbord. At the top of your screen you will see "Sort" this allows you to sort your lenses by a variety of criteria including "created", or the date you created your lense. See the image below for a screen grab, the arrow indicates what you are supposed to click (if you click on the photo it will enlarge).

In case you don't know Squidutils, it is a very cool website given to us by TheFluffaNutta, a well known Giant Squid from the UK. Thanks very much Fluff. Perhaps everyone already knew about this except me? Are there any other easy ways to do this?


  1. Glad you like it. :o)

    If you have a lot of Lenses, then sorting them by Category can help you find them easily, and sorting them by Type will group them by the CoBrands too.

  2. This seems like a great idea to me and I see you already have some of my favourite Giants contributing. Goos luck with this everyone. You never know I may be a Giant too one day - only 25 lenses to go....
