Some weeks ago I came across the lenses of Squidoo. I think it's a pretty interesting concept and I've set up two lenses there.

This is what they write in their main page:
We have built a new online platform and community that makes it easy for anyone to build a single page--called a lens--on a topic, idea, product or cause he is passionate about. These lenses in turn help finders get unique, human perspectives instead of computer-selected and often irrelevant search results. Not only can Lensmasters spread their ideas, get recognized for their knowledge, and send more traffic to their Web sites and blogs—they could also earn royalties. They also give you the option to donate your earnings to charity.

I've set up two lenses there:
- Chemistry of daily life
- Words from the soul

You can make your own lenses for free as well, simply setting up an account in Squidoo. They have many modules available, that make the process very easy to do.

..another blog site but the charitable intention is good to see, different.
Your chemistry site is great, very pedagogique! Thanks.

I'm glad you liked it.
The lenses are a sort of blog but very specific, you choose a topic and then write anything you know about it. You can include amazon links to books related with that topic, ebay items that may be related, other links, pictures... Everything is used by means of modules, so you only have to place the content.

Depending on the number of visits, ranking and so on, you get money that you can donate to charity. Little amounts earn by everyone can make a pretty reasonable amount of money when put together.
Unfortunately, the ranking goes back very quickly when you don't update it very often. My chemistry lens reached #60 in the ranking two weeks ago, when it was selected lens of the day, and now it's in #963!
