BellaOnline has a pretty extensive training program, which includes a 30+ day training period where you are a "temp" until you complete some training courses and more importantly, prove that you can write consistently following BellaOnline's rules of the road.

Last night, I got the happy news that I am officially the Softball Editor for BellaOnline! That's a great personal achievement for me (woo-hoo!) but more importantly for my readers here, I can spruce up the joint just a little bit, and so expect to see the following upgrades:

1) I can add html to my articles. This means that I can post illustrations, make tables, and link to other articles I've written, as appropriate.
-- Articles like Softball Scorekeeping Abbreviations can have tables inserted so it's a bit easier to read and use.
-- I can delve into statistics and trends now, since having graphs and such will help illustrate my points and conclusions better.
-- Where appropriate, I will provide links directly to products that I have reviewed and given a rating of 4 stars or better so you don't have to search for them yourself.

2) Most articles will have links to other sister articles at the bottom of the page (listed under "Related Links" and highlighted in light orange (or whatever color that is))

My goal is to have all the upgrades done today, but it might take me a few days, so please be patient.

As I continue with my training over the next 3 months (or so), look for more improvements and services, and as always, PLEASE provide feedback, either here in the forums or via email. I love to hear from you!!

Hi Don,

Great news and congratulations! It is a great feeling to drop the 'training wheels' and your site is looking great. I hope to get my forum up to speed like you have; things are nice and lively here!

Once again glad to see a fellow newbie cross over to the other side!

Thanks, Tammy! Getting the forum more active is still on the "to-do" list. As much as I like other editors stopping by, I'd like even more if my readers became regular posters.

I just keep reminding myself that Rome wasn't built in a day...
