April 26 2011 Editor Assistance Newsletter

Greetings and salutations!

The time that worked well for just about all responders for our upcoming editor chat was this Thursday, April 28th, at 9pm EST! The chat will be a personal coaching session. Think of your two biggest goals. They can be for BellaOnline, for another web project, for your personal life, whatever you'd like. We'll all brainstorm and help you figure out the steps to reach them! No goal is too big or complicated. We'll get you started!

The link to the chat is on your main admin menu. The chat logon isn't currently tied to any of our other systems so if you've forgotten your account there, or haven't made one yet, just create another one. It's fine to have multiple.


We've just split up the old West Coast Travel site into two new sites - a site just on California and a separate site on Oregon-Washington. You can see them here -


If you know of anyone who would be interested in writing for one or the other of these sites, please ask them to apply!


When I talk with editors about what they're working on, a common theme I hear is that they'd like to develop their skills in time management. We've run some chats in the past about time management but of course not all editors have the time (grin) to attend them! I was thinking about making up a public free course on time management so that it helps both editors and our visitors.

I'd love to have some play-testers for our new course. If you'd be interested in helping test out a new time management course, please let me know! It'd be just like our other online courses, probably 8 lessons or so, with ideas to try out.

Have a great week, and I hope to see you on Thursday!

Lisa Shea, owner
