Greetings and Salutations -

I am slowly getting my computer up and running again. Thank you all for your patience while I rebuild! We have a few upcoming events that I wanted to alert everyone to!


GREEN TEAM
Sat Oct 27th is Make a Difference Day which is the quarterly focus of our Green Team! You can learn more about our Green Team here -

If you'd like to join our Green Team, let me know! We brainstorm ways that we can help BellaOnline be as eco-friendly and eco-promoting as possible. We are fully carbon neutral and are always looking to do more!


GATHERING OCT 19-21
We are finalizing our plans and schedules for the upcoming Gathering in Massachusetts! If you have a Skype address and would like to virtually participate, let me know. We have a *gorgeous* house right on the ocean we are renting. You can see it here -

Also, let me know your favorite song to add to our gathering playlist. That way we all share in the musical experience!

We will be covering earning money, traffic building, motivation, creativity, making ebooks, and much more. It will be a focused weekend of learning and knowledge! Plus serenity too! We still have a few bed spots open, so if you are at all interested in attending please let me know! We would *love* to have you join us. It looks to be one of our most beautiful, relaxing gatherings ever!


FORUM UPGRADE
I've been testing out some upgrades on my Non-BellaOnline UBB forums for about a month and they're going well. What I did is change the forum settings so by default it emails people when they get responses to their posts, much like Facebook and other systems do. It greatly increases traffic on the forums when people get those reminders that someone has answered them. So I'll be rolling that change out in the coming week on our BellaOnline forums. People of course can always turn it off if they want.

As part of that, I'm going to run a series of forum contests to draw people in to the forum system. If you'd like to be part of the forum contest promotion, please let me know! I can help you get one set up. Usually we give away a book, CD, or DVD we have on our topic. So for example I'll give away some of my low carb books and some gaming t-shirts I'd gotten as promotional items from gaming companies.

As always, let me know if you have any suggestions, comments, or ideas!

Have a great week :)
