Birthday Lights Are Shining On Paula

The spotlights have an extra special glow to them today as we wish Paula a Happy Birthday. Actually this is a Belated Birthday wish as her actual Birthday was April 3rd. Our wishes might be a day late but they are no less sincere in wishing this very special lady whom we all know as Lakeerieartists a wonderful year with many more to come. I won’t reveal her age but this one was a milestone and I’ll leave it at that.

Paula is one remarkable person who spends so much of her time teaching us how to be successful in our writing endeavors on Squidoo and other places online. She is one of the most focused people I have ever met. Paula and I both started on Squidoo in June of 2008 and it didn’t take very long for our paths to cross and a friendship to develop. I am constantly in awe of her and how much she gets done in a day’s time. Currently, Paula has 581 lenses on Squidoo. I can’t even begin to guess how many other articles she has spread across the internet with her websites. On Wizzley her count is currently at 168 and growing. See what I mean by focused?

This extraordinary lady also owns the Lake Erie Artists a brick and mortar shop along with an online presence. How does she do it? Add to this all of the posts that she has done here on Squidlog and on Writing Online and you have one very busy woman! Should I mention that somewhere in the middle of all of her writing she is a wife and mother? Paula has two lovely daughters, one is now in college and the other is in High School. My goodness, I don’t know where you find all of your energy, girl! I’m getting tired just trying to remember all that you do. If we could just bottle up that energy, I know you could sell it!

Along with being one of my dearest friends, Paula is also a partner and collaborator with myself and AJ. We have worked on several projects together one of which is the Squidoo Step By Step guide that we revised last year.

Join me in wishing Paula a very Happy Birthday even though it is slightly late…celebrating your birth should be a year long event especially when you are as awe-inspiring as someone like Paula.

Happy Birthday, dear Paula!

  1. Well I was lucky enough to be in the Giant Squid Open Mike chatroom with Paula last night, so I was able to say Happy Birthday then and now I just want to say “ditto” to what Bev said to a very special lady, who I am honored to call a friend – even if she does tell people I sound like The Queen, even when I swear :)

  2. Happy Birthday – again- Paula! You are awe-inspiring and WOW… all those Squidoo lenses??? Good grief. Is there any skin left on the ends of your typing fingers? ;)

    Here’s to many more!

  3. Again, Happy Birthday Paula! I have enjoyed our talks, emails and definitely benefited from your knowledge — and will continue! Oh, and you are a NUT! I love it!!

  4. Thank you guys, and I have to say that knowing each other is always a two way street. I gain as much as I give with each one of you.

    Seriously AJ, can you say Harry Potter one more time for us??

    Love you all. Here is to a grand and successful 2012 and beyond for all of us. :)

  5. Although I did deliver my birthday wishes in a timely fashion on the Wizzley forums I wanted to chime in here as well. Paula is indeed one of the most focused go-getters I have encountered on the web.

    But did you know that, in addition to her various writing engagements, she has recently become the star of WizzleyTV?
