BellaOnline is an editor run site with an aim to help visitors with as few ads as possible.
An Overview of Traffic at Bella
Every site at BellaOnline has the potential to reach an amazing number of web citizens. It´s all a matter of how you approach your topic.
BellaOnline - A Writer Run Site
After the original BellaOnline went bankrupt, there followed a few months where the site was completely dead to the world. Then the hosts built a completely new site by hand.
BellaOnline - The Original Site History
Before the current version of BellaOnline, there was a company-run BellaOnline that focused on horoscopes and girly content.
Our aim in BellaOnline is to help each editor go through our training, build up skills and a collection of articles, and then to launch out into her own site. She then becomes a BellaOnline Alumni.
BellaOnline Hierarchy of Goals
For human beings, many feel there is a 'hierarchy of needs' which helps us become the best we can be. It's good to think that the same can be true for a community, and that we have a hierarchy of goals that we wish to achieve!
BellaOnline Mission Statement
BellaOnline´s mission statement was jointly developed by the editors of BellaOnline, and helps to define what we spend our time here achieving.
BellaOnline Training Mentor
The BellaOnline Training Mentor program pairs up each new trainee in our system with a friendly fully graduated editor who can provide a shoulder to lean on, an ear to listen, and a pair of eyes to give a second opinion!
Editor Assistance Newsletter
Because this Editor Assistance is displayed in the same "shell" as all other sites are, it has standard buttons such as a subscribe box for a newsletter. However, the "Editor Assistance" site does not actually have a newsletter.
Editor Guidelines - 2002
Just to give you a glimpse into the past, here were our very first editor guidelines, when we launched the site as an editor-run site back in February 2002! Back then we called editors "hosts".
Here are answers to the frequently asked questions found at BellaOnline.
Five Year Anniversary Review
I am so thrilled at how well we have done in the past five years! Our success is directly due to the efforts of each and every one of you in our community. I did want to give special thanks to the editors who have been with us for all five years!
Handling a Nested Site
If you are writing for a site that is synoptic (encompassing) of other sites on BellaOnline - or if you are writing for a site that is a component topic - please read our guidelines.

Sexuality on BellaOnline
BellaOnline's policy since its beginning has been to not publish articles containing sexuality on our site. Here is why this policy has helped us flourish and grow!
Sites that are Nested
In several cases, one BellaOnline site topic is fully nested within another site topic. An example would be Writing and Fiction Writing. Here is how BellaOnline handles those crossover situations.
URL Versions at BellaOnline
To help keep spammers and questionable adult sites from creating "lookalike" versions of our pages, BellaOnline owns several versions of our URL, all pointing to us.
