November 24 2011 Editor Assistance Newsletter
In the United States, today is a day of Thanksgiving. Historically it was when the beleaguered Pilgrims gave thanks for having survived a brutal winter. In modern times it is about taking a day to experience gratitude for all we have in life. We have a warm bed to sleep in, food to eat, and a community to support us. With the millions of people verging on starvation, and children living in garbage dumps in Cambodia, we have a lot to be thankful for.
I wanted to offer my thanks to each and every editor in the BellaOnline community. Together we donate our time and energy towards helping our world become a better place. Our site supports numerous charity projects, our articles provide free advice and encouragement for visitors all over the world. We have helped rural women in Chile learn how to knit and inner city moms in the US learn better nutrition for their families. Many websites out there are so ad-laden that elderly peoples' computers can't load the pages. I receive praise daily that our low-ad, low-graphic site can work on ancient computers and smart phones.
Other sites our size run on massive server farms with a giant staff. We have just two servers and our managers all volunteer their time. What keeps us smiling each day is knowing how dedicated our community is to helping each other reach our goals. We review each others' ebooks. We offer advice on each others' projects in the forums. We cheerlead when we're down, and we praise when we reach milestones. Together we can achieve any goal.
However you spend today, know that the BellaOnline community thanks you for being a part of our group, and that I personally thank you for your dedication and enthusiasm. Together we help to make the world a better place, and every day is a new opportunity!
Happy Thanksgiving :)
