Out of the Ashes

First, we should describe what our company used to be: a useful guide for the writers who created content for Squidoo.com. Have you ever heard of Squidoo?  It was a large website where anyone, without any coding experience, could create a web page on something they enjoyed. You could link to products you recommend and, if your page became popular, you could make some money off of it. It was a popular website among retirees who wanted to write as a hobby and make a little cash.

Squidoo was created by Seth Godin, a Silicon Valley thought leader that writes books on how to make successful businesses. After Squidoo cratered due to excessive filters and terrible decision-making (it’s a very long story), the ashes were sold to Hubpages in 2014.
