May 1 2012 Editor Assistance Newsletter

Greetings and Salutations -

Happy May Day, everyone! Today is a delightful day to celebrate spring, cleansing, fresh starts and new beginnings.

A reminder that we have an editor chat on Thu, May 3rd at 9pm EST - mark your calendars! We can discuss anything you need to help get you on your path. Article brainstorming, income ideas, time management, you name it!

I've updated the marketing page that shows up when you add / edit an article. It now provides the short-version Twitter article link next to the Twitter promo area. That should help make it even easier for you to do your Twitter promotions. Let me know if there are any other tweaks that could help out!

AOL's currently having some mail server issues which are causing random messages not to get in to them. If you get some bouncebacks from AOL, just ignore them for now. Hopefully AOL will get that worked out shortly and be back to normal.

I was looking at our Mission Statement recently, which we developed together a while back. It's on our About Us page -


It says:

"BellaOnline provides an encouraging, supportive publishing community for women. We provide free training, support and promotion so writers may reach their personal and business goals. Overall, BellaOnline aims to provide high-quality, helpful, trustworthy content, at no cost, in a low advertisement environment for our millions of visitors."

I wonder if it's a bit "provide" happy :) I'm open to suggestions - what sorts of tweaks should we make to this? I'm open to all ideas - send them along and I'll gather them together for us to discuss!


All the votes are in! The majority of editors would like to see the upcoming 2012 Boston MA Editor Gathering to be the weekend of October 19-21, 2012. This should be deep enough into foliage season for us to see some pretty colors, but before Halloween so parents can be home with their families for that.

Now we began the fun of planning! If you'd like to be on the planning team, please send me an email. Also, if you think you'll be able to come, let me know that too. That way we can send our hotel "wish list" out to the potential attendees, and get a sense of what features they're most interested in!

Have a great week!


Lisa Shea, owner
