Re-Reading an Old Post


Every once in a while I’m reminded of a post previously written here on NJFM. The post I’m referring to was originally posted on October 30, 2009. Whether you’re a freelance writer, furniture upcycler, entrepreneur or looking to take your a newly found passion to another level, this post is for you. The name of [...]


What’s up with NJFM?


I’m changing things around here again. I’m going for the simple, no frills version of NJFM. I don’t think the change will make much of a difference for my flow of traffic because traffic to NJFM is a mere trickle. I’ve changed. While I still write often (off line), I don’t do much writing for [...]


ICS – Idea Capture Spreadsheet

As promised, I’m uploading my Idea Capture Spreadsheet. As the spreadsheet title indicates, I use it to capture my ideas so I won’t forget them. On my personal copy of the spreadsheet, I’ve listed all of my websites and ebook titles. I’ve also inserted hyperlinks to the specific websites and documents. It makes it easier [...]


Guest Posting and SEO

Matt Cutts, head of Google’s web spam team, recently published a post that may help reduce my inbox spam. He advises bloggers to stop writing guest posts for SEO purposes  (key words here…SEO purposes). The practice of guest blogging has become so distorted that there are companies offering to provide “100% original” guest posts for [...]


C’mon Phishers, You can Do Better than That!

I opened my email program this morning and this was one of the emails I received last night: The hyperlink for "sing-in" leads to http://www.azinetur.com/cc.php. Just for grins I clicked on the link to see how elaborate of a bait and switch plan these phishers put together, but I didn’t get too far. This is [...]

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 [...]


The Sad Facts of My Online Writing Income

2013 was not a stellar year for my online writing income.  My writing income hadn’t been this low in several years.  As a matter of fact, I had to go back to 2008 in order to see such low residual numbers. Here are the facts.  In 2013 my earnings were a whopping $11,458.43! To give [...]


Why Do I Write about Old Things?

Ok, my kids would answer that question differently than you or I might. The reason why I write about old things is because some people want information on old things. I’m learning not to pre-judge my audience. One person’s trash is another person’s treasure. I recently wrote an article about computer speakers that I purchased [...]
