It is the holiday for us in the USA today, July 5th.  You know what that means?  Undoubtedly, the servers over at Squidoo are literally teaming AND jamming with Squidoo lensmasters authoring top-notch, quality lenses about their passions, interests and expertise.  Well, probably along with what they had for July 4th.  Perhaps a barbeque or two?  Oh, and what about the fireworks?  We've been enjoying a private fireworks show from our next door neighbor ... over the past month!  I give him 5 stars and a LIKE.

Turning our focus today to the Top 100 Squidoo Topic / Category of Squidoo Tips, we come to a very important fork in the road.  On ANY social platform, the MOST important topic should be the Help category.  Would YOU not agree that any articles or "lenses" that reside in the Help category have got to be the very best and top-notch "helpful" lenses.  We demand real tips which are straightforward, honest and full of integrity!  Oh my.

Without further hubbub, here are two Wordle tag clouds which have imaged the various Squidoo lenses which landed in the Top 100 of Squidoo Tips on July 3, 2010.  First of all, it is MOST important to point out that the Wordle on the left is untouched, unedited.  Squidoo definitely IS the buzzword of choice, followed up by Lens and Lenses.  So, to explore the true topics and themes further, we scrubbed OUT those three words of Squidoo, Lens and Lenses to provide a truer view of the lenses.

As you look at the Wordle on the right, you can surely see MANY helpful topics there.  I've got to note that this particular Wordle, out of all those I've thus far generated, seems to have the MOST variety of topics.  Let's see, Tips jumps out followed up by Photo and Effects ... gee, we've previously actually seen a LOT of Photo and Effects in other Top 100 topics, you know?  What else do you see there?  Oh, maybe HTML, Free, Promote, Images, Resources and lots other buzzwords.

What about the Squidoo lensmaster with the most Squidoo lenses in the Squidoo Tips Topic?  Today’s Squidoo lensmaster in the spotlight is Tim aka thefluffanutta with 19 Squidoo lenses ranking in the Top 100 of the Squidoo Tips Topic / Category.

Two of my Squidoo Tips lenses are in the Top 100 of the Squidoo Tips Topic / Category. They are two particular Squidoo lenses that I really think deserve to be there, you know? Squid Angel -- Blessings to YOU! and How to Squidoo -- A Step-by-Step Primer.  I have devoted a lot of my time on Squidoo to making MORE helpful Squidoo tips lenses which I think are worthy of being in that Top 100.  They cover a variety of helpful topics and show creative ways to use certain Squidoo modules or building blocks; like that "my lenses" module that I really like.

So, here is my commercial time-out to share with you these other very helpful Squidoo lenses in the Squidoo Tips Topic Category, by Jaguar Julie.  Maybe one day they will see the light of day?  ;)
