Minerva Webworks LLC

Welcome!

Minerva Webworks LLC was founded by me, Lisa Shea in order to develop websites and publish books with a charitable purpose. Each website in my Minerva Webworks community is designed to help visitors achieve health, happiness and harmony. The ad presence on these sites is deliberately kept to a minimum, solely ensuring the sites pay their own hosting fees and can remain self sufficient. I explicitly avoid pop-up, pop-under, interstitial and other annoying ads. The primary purpose of my websites is to help people.

The Minerva Webworks Websites

Here are some of the websites which are part of Minerva Webworks.

BellaOnline

BellaOnline

BellaOnline began back in 2002; at one point was the second largest women's website in the world. We'veve trained thousands of women and men on how to write for the web. BellaOnline has over 400 different topic areas, each written by an enthusiast in that field. We train our writers how to write engaging content, use social networking, and monetize their material. It's all free!

RomanceClass

RomanceClass

RomanceClass was also once a top-traffic site. We received fifty or more questions a day on dating, flirting, and other topics. The site has tens of thousands of tips on a wide variety of topic areas. Over the years we have compiled a massive library of questions, answers, and advice on all things involving relationships.

WineIntro

WineIntro

I had wine content online with the site GeoCities long before most other wine sites even knew about the web. I then wrote for About.com for several years as their wine guide before creating my own WineIntro website. I have thousands of pages online about wine regions, wine reviews, wine terminology, and much more. Plus sangria recipes and Champagne cocktail recipes!

LisaShea

LisaShea

My name is Lisa Shea. I'm an author and artist. I've written over 300 books and create a variety of art styles. In addition, I own, maintain, and write for over thirty websites. These are sites I personally created, designed, and update. Many of these date back to 2004.

Weddings and Courtships

WeddingsAndCourtships

My non-fiction series of books describes wedding and courtship traditions in various locations. So far I've written books on Ireland, France, and Italy. The next book will be on Native American traditions. These are perfect for anyone looking to add a little romance into their life!

Flirting Class

FlirtingClass

We could all use a little more joy in our lives. A bit of laughter. A way to treasure the connections which make each day special. FlirtingClass offers poetry, advice, and moments to help us appreciate each day.

MeditateTips

MeditateTips

Meditation, yoga, and compassion can make all the difference in a person's daily life. So much which we stress over is really not that important in the grand scheme of things. Learn to take a step back and appreciate all we have already in our lives.

WinePhilosophy

WinePhilosophy

Every day is precious. Every birthday is a cause for celebration. This site reminds us why we should be grateful to be the age we are. Keep looking forward to what is to come.

BellArtistry

BellArtistry

Powerful corporations have moved into many underdeveloped worlds and taken advantage of the local populations. Fair trade and ethical trade seeks to balance that out. BellArtistry finds and promotes fair trade products to help artisans earn a living wage.

BookKitten

BookKitten

It can be challenging to be a self-published author. There are millions of other books competing with you to reach an audience. BookKitten helps authors find their readers and helps readers choose just the perfect book.

PermaFreeBooks

PermaFreeBooks

Books were once a luxury item which only the wealthiest could afford. The rest of us common folk could only dream of touching a book, never mind owning one. How the world has changed. This site is all about the vast number of FREE books now available for all.

BostonWriters

BostonWriters

I manage the Boston Writing Group for the Boston chapter of Mensa. We are a group of about thirty writers who write about mystery, romance, science fiction, fantasy, horror, suspense, and just about anything else in between. Non-fiction, too.

Holga Photography

Holga Photography

I love film photography. The Holga is a Chinese medium-format film camera made out of plastic. It uses 120 film. It's delightfully old school with light leaks and chaotic behavior. Perfect for adventuring with.

Far From Eden

Far From Eden

From classic rock to modern pop, from Adele to Zeppelin, Far From Eden plays clubs all over central Worcester. Mark your calendar and come on out to listen!

EnjoyMA

EnjoyMA

I have lived in Massachusetts for over twenty years. I adore it here. Any time I've moved away I've come right back again. I love to kayak and hike, and Massachusetts offers great options for both. It offers a wealth of historical locations - and of course the beautiful ocean.

SuttonMass

I've lived in a variety of places in the US. For the past twenty-plus years I've resided contently in Sutton, MA. Sutton is about mid-state, south of Worcester, and features a beautiful rural setting. I have a horse farm on my street and a dairy farm around the corner.

The BellaRadio site is associated with the main BellaOnline website. BellaRadio promotes femalle artists in all musical genres.

ASPIsFun

ASPIsFun

ASP Classic was once a commonly used programming language. All of my sites that are not WordPress based are in ASP. Nowadays many people have moved on to ASP.Net or to simply using WordPress. I've resisted. I have over 500,000 ASP pages in my online network of sites!

The Name

About Minerva

Minerva was the goddess of wisdom and reason in the Roman Empire. She was the patron for learning, the arts, science, poetry and literature. Minerva was also hailed as the defender of the weak and poor. In the Greek culture she was known as Athena, goddess of justice, and the city of Athens was dedicated to her.

Minerva's symbol was the wise owl.

The gorgeous owl logo was created by Gardiner Design

Lisa Shea

I have been working with networked computers since my childhood in the 1970s. I was fortunate enough to grow up in a household which had thermal-paper terminals. At Worcester Polytech I had access to the early workings of the internet, and then working at biotechs I was involved with FTP, Telnet, and the first websites with the research scientists.

I enjoy staying in tune with the latest changes, whatever our wonderful world of technology has to offer!
