March 14 2012 Editor Assistance Newsletter

Greetings and Salutations -

It's time for us to all discuss and vote on our 2012 gathering plans! I've just finished doing up a fresh set of maps for where all the editors live. You can see that here -


You can see that in past years we did east cost, middle, west coast, then east coast, middle, and west coast. So we're back to east coast again! The logical place would be in the Boston area, maybe for fall foliage, but as always we're open to all votes. Please chime in with where you'd like to go. I know everyone would like it to be in their own back yard :) However, with 400 of us, that's sort of impossible. So please try to think of where is easy to fly to and which has some tourist interest for the visitors. Our aim is to keep rotating it around so everyone has it relatively near them eventually.

Once we all vote on a location, I'll send a fresh message to have us vote on which weekend we'll have it, and we'll plan from there!


Numerous editors had asked me to turn our Time Management course into an ebook for easier access. I have finally done that! It is still being processed, but here is how to see it, and get a sneak preview.

On your main admin area, go into EBOOKS on the lower right.


Right now it's in the "pending review" list - so you can see it there. Eventually when it goes live it'll be in the live list. A benefit of being a BellaOnline editor is you get access to all editors' ebooks for free! Please offer them suggestions and feedback on their ebooks, so they can improve their offerings.


Our first January 2012 winner is Donna Coogan, our Budget Decor editor. Donna began with this site in November 2010. We can all use inexpensive ideas for making our homes more warm and welcoming!

Our second winner is Deb Duxbury, our Animal Life editor. Deb has been with our community since March 2011. Deb is incredibly enthusiastic about all things animal and environmental - check out her articles and forum for more ways to help save our planet!

Congratulations to Donna and Deb! Please write me with your personal email address that you'd like me to use for your Amazon gift certificate.

Lisa Shea, owner
