Random Christene-ness

{June 12, 2008}   Alright…where was I?

Oh that’s right…I started a blog. Then got side tracked…I’m good now.

Moving on.

You know I’m addicted to Squidoo. I think one of the lenses that people associate with my username is my first Webkinz lens. It was actually the 5th lens I created but it was the one that really took off.

So…how did I become a Webkinz expert? ;)

When my daughter was 5, and in her last year of preschool, she got her first Webkinz. They had already been out for a year or more when we caved and joined the growing trend. I was part of a small message board of moms whose kids already had them and new the ropes. Before I helped my dd (I’ll just use dd for daughter…it’s BB lingo and easier to type) register her first pet I read some of the threads on the subject and thought it would be easy to navigate. I’ve been on the web since the early 90s, I can handle a kids website.

But, dude, Webkinz can get sick! And when my dd’s little online Chihuahua turned green I didn’t know why or what to do. Thankfully, I had a board full of mom’s with experience share their knowledge with me. Then I thought…what do other parents do? The ones who aren’t armed with a personal Webkinz posse. I want to help those moms! And so I started with my friends’ best tips and started the lens. I played on dd’s account every night, (earning her KinzCash of course…that W Shop is expensive…and let’s not talk about the cost of exclusive items!), learning as I went.

Then dd got her second Webkinz…actually a Lil’ Kinz…and then a 3rd.
Then I wanted my own! I saw the Cheeky Monkey in a store and fell in love. So my dd and husband bought it for me as a late Mother’s Day present. :D
Now I had my own account and could play games with my dd in Webkinz World. Cool beans.

She got her 4th…I got my 2nd…she got her 5th…I got my 3rd, which was another Mother’s Day present 1 year later.

And I see a Webkinz in my husband’s future too.

I’ve been a Webkinzer for over a year now! And have not one, but 2 Webkinz lenses on Squidoo. My first got so long that I needed to start another. It’s called Webkinz Recipes, Pet of the Month, Clothing & More. I think it’s got the best collection of Webkinz Recipes online. Other people will say that about their sites too. But they are fibbing. ;) They might have the same recipes, but they aren’t presented as nicely…if I do say so myself. ;)

There ya go…If you ever have a Webkinz question drop by one of my sites and post in the Guestbook. I’m there everyday, unless I’m away on vacation. But I just got back from one so I’ll be around. Or, if you want to trade exclusive items check out that first Webkinz lens of mine. I don’t trade, but there are a lot of regular posters there who do!
