Many of my readers know that at the beginning of the year I had accepted an opportunity to be the Editor of the Timeless Bliss channel for mature andwomen at .
You will not see the “Editor” banner on my websites any longer.
I have resigned from that position due to a conflict in ideology.
Part of my duties included approving and editing the posts of the 20 wonderfully, talented women contributors that I recruited whom graciously volunteered their time and talents. These women came from all walks of life: several were doctors; one was a lawyer, there wereexperts, crafters, beauty consultants; journalism majors. All shared one common denominator ~ a love for sharing their knowledge and experiences in life, be it professional tips, family tips, life experiences.
I built that channel from the ground up ~ recruited the writers; got it included inWomen; built the store. I had a tremendous amount of hours and time invested in that site.
The one positive aspect coming out of this whole event was that I was able to connect with the wonderful women who became Contributors.
The following is an excerpt of my Resignation letter:
I am submitting my resignation as Editor of the Timeless Bliss channel at Blissfully Domestic, effective immediately.
My decision was based on several factors.
I am a baby boomer who came of age during the lateand early . I am a native New Englander, and attended college at an all-woman’s liberal art college in Massachusetts. Because of my experiences, I feel that there exists a conflict on my interpretation of acceptable posts on behalf of the contributor’s I have recruited and the of Blissfully Domestic.
Thank you for the opportunity, but I just don’t think this is a good fit.
Additionally, after the on-line meeting this past week, I feel that I do not have the additional time to contribute to the additional duties you are requiring of Editors for the 5-minutes posts. Many times, it take much longer than that just to choose an appropriate picture for a post, much less research material and re-write it.
I feel that I have more than given it my “all” by recruiting who I feel, are excellent writers. Some of the Contributors to the Timeless Bliss channel are credentialed experts in their fields; several are doctors and published writers. Many others have varied interests and are capable writers.
I’m not sure how aware you may be of amount of time that I have spent recruiting; sending outreach letters; tech instructions and basic hand-holding for those who are not familiar with Word Press or photo selections.
I have developed the Diva ning site into an informational base, and encouraged participation from my contributors.
Additionally, I follow-up by pinging the TB URL when a new post is published, and maintain theaccount. I am quite surprised that there has not been any promotion by BD of the Timeless Bliss channel. Although I visit daily, I have yet to see one of the TB contributors on the scrolling marquis banner.
I have sent out advertising requests to my contacts. Although the meeting indicated that there may be a promise of “substantial” (or similar verbiage) advertising revenue, I don’t foresee TB being high on the priority list.
All my duties have been fulfilled, and all pending posts have been published.
I leave you with an extremely talented group of contributors.

Please read all of the comments if you can. It gets really scary the farther down you go. The comments only cement in my mind that I made the right decision and should have realized it sooner.
