Greetings and Salutations editors!

I'm getting great feedback from editors on the free advertising options and on the advertising and promotion courses. One common question I'm getting is how to make a banner ad that is the proper 728x90 size, to go at the top of their page.

I've just finished updating our graphics course to have that information! This is also great instruction to get the correct 100x133 size for the three recommended products you can promote across our network. Just doing those two things can easily earn you some extra money! :)

If you've been having any trouble making these images, swing by the Members area and take a look at the graphics course! It provides step by step information for several graphics packages. If your package isn't listed there, post in the Editor Forum and we'll lend a hand!

Learning how to make banners for your projects is a powerful skill to learn for your long term goal reaching!


We've just finished an update in the Travel area! We previously had the eastern states like Tennessee and Kentucky as part of "midwest", Florida was lumped in with the Southern states, and it was confusing people. We have done a spring cleaning! You can see the new breakout of US states here -


The map is fully clickable so you can click on any region to see its site! This should help our areas be even easier to use for our visitors.

Let me know if you have any questions!


One of our editors is reporting that the search function on our site is taking over 30 seconds to return results. I'm trying to narrow down where that could be happening!

Please take a moment to:

* Start at our main BellaOnline homepage. Click on your channel on the left side and make a mental note of about how long it takes (counting "one Mississippi" is fine enough, we just need a rough idea).

* From here, click on your site page. Again, see how long that takes.

* From here, type any phrase you want into the search box.

Does that third step take about the same time as the previous two? Or does it take 15 seconds, or 30 seconds? Please let me know, so we can figure out what is happening!

Thanks, and have a great week!

Lisa Shea, owner
