I've finally made a Squidoo lens for The Chieftains
. I kept putting it off because I know they've got a ton of CDs out there and there always seemed to be other artists I wanted to build lenses for. Then I got involved in creating web pages at my own Have Pun Will Travel
website - see my last post for more information about that.
Yesterday I got caught up on making pages for my website that related to Squidoo lenses, and today just seemed like a good time to get The Chieftains lens made. I organized things a bit differently for creating the lens. I got a discography off Wikipedia and used that to attach ASINs (they're like ISBN numbers for books, but they're specific to Amazon). There were only a few albums for which MP3s also exist, so that made things a bit easier, but then I discovered there are DVDs to go along with about a half dozen albums, so I included those as well.
I've also created some video showcase lenses for Altan
, Alasdair Fraser
. The Flook one ended up looking pretty much like the original lens except it's got ten videos instead of two.
Of course, all that meant updating the Celtic Music: Lenses
lens as well since that lists all the lenses plus the video showcases. I'll probably be adding video showcases for a bit, since it's interesting to check out all the YouTube videos for the various artists and groups and choose the best ones.
