Working Retail is Like Blogging

Let me begin this post by saying, “I love growing older!” Being there’s not much I can do about growing older I might as well embrace it. My alternative is to die (I’m not quite ready for that yet). This growing older revelation has done much to help me find joy at a minimum-wage, part-time […]

Big Girl Pants

I’ve finally decided to put on my big girl pants and try something new. As I was writing articles for Constant Content, I found myself pulling some of them off the site. I put a lot of work and research into my articles and expect to be paid accordingly (Anna’s rant hit home). I decided […]

Time to Write

Whether I want to or not, I think it’s for me to get back to writing. It’s no secret that my income has dropped significantly. My monthly income for the past few months have been hovering a little over the $1000 mark. I really can’t complain because it is residual income, but it’s a far […]

No Online Writing Regrets

Yes, it’s been a while since I’ve written a post on writing. It may be a while before I write another one, but I wanted to share this thought. A long time ago when I started writing online I heard folks say it wasn’t worth it. The thought of spending untold hours writing online for […]

On a New Journey

As you all know, I’ve been a bit burnt out with online writing. I’ve had the NJFM blog for several years and it has been dwindling in activity. I just don’t have what it takes in me to make relevant posts on the topic of online writing. I’ve been dallying around with a few other […]

Ebook Experiment Time

I’ve had an idea roaming around in my head for over a year and it wasn’t until Ken’s unfortunate AdSense situation that I realized it was time for me to stop thinking and start doing (sorry for that extremely long sentence). About Writing Books I’ve found that my book’s audience is folks who are just […]

Happy New Year!

I tried my best to stay away from the computer during the holiday season. I was marginally successful. Anyway, it’s a new year and many of us are back with lofty goals. My goals for this year aren’t too lofty. I want to increase my income without increasing my workload. I want a sustainable writing […]

My Struggle with Active vs. Passive Income

Kidgas’ comment on the recent Exceeding Minimum Wage post is the inspiration for this post. If you haven’t read his comment, please go back and do so (also, check out his Cash Flow Mantra blog – he’s got some great stuff there). His comment inspired me to back up a bit and outline my inner […]

    Down the Home Stretch

    It’s the end of January and I’m working hard to complete the task I set for myself this month. With a few more days of working diligently, I believe I’ll be able to cross it off my To Do list. Of course with any major task there are always stragglers to handle, but I can […]

    Scrapers, Spam and No Follow

    When I turn on the computer in the morning, one of the first things I do is review yesterday’s stats. Sometimes I’ll check to see where the views are coming from. When I find something unusual, I track it back to learn more. This morning I saw an unusual referrer. Not wanting to give attention […]

    Thesis 2.1 Page Numbering

    (Warning: If you don’t use Thesis WordPress theme, ignore this post) This post reminds me of why I originally created NJFM. NJFM serves as my memory. I know there are programs like Evernote and a host of other apps and software programs that could remind me of missed appointments and the like, but none of […]

  • Temporarily Deactivating CommentLuv

    The amount of spam this blog has been getting is truly outrageous! It is my belief that the CommentLuv plugin is a magnet to spammers. They want backlinks and CommentLuv provides such links. I’m running an experiment for a bit. I have deactivated CommentLuv and am monitoring my spam count. If I find there’s a […]

    A Full Circle Moment

    Now that I’m taking a reflective view of my online writing, I realize I am coming full circle. When I started writing online I created a catch-all site called Tidbits & Stuff. I enjoyed playing around with the site and was thrilled to learn I could earn money doing something I enjoyed. Wanting to learn […]

    An Introduction

    Hello, let me introduce myself. My name is Felicia A. Williams and I’m a wife, mom and sometimes writer. I own a blog called No Job for Mom and a few other sites around the Internet. I used to be an avid writer/blogger but somewhere along the line my writing Mojo was high jacked. It […]

    Ad-less Browsing

    I really must have been living under a rock. I just discovered ad-less browsing. If it were not for a Firefox update that caused issues with uploading homework assignments, I never would have ventured down this path. The workaround for uploading my homework assignment was, “Use a different browser.” Not the answer I was looking […]

    Could it be the Theme Change?

    Yesterday I noticed a significant increase in traffic after changing one of my blog’s theme to Thesis. This particular blog used to be one of my money making blogs, but after several Google algorithm changes my income was reduced to a trickle. Sunday night I converted the blog to Thesis and on Monday my traffic […]
