Re-Reading an Old Post

| August 25, 2014 | 0 Comments

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?

What’s up with NJFM?

| August 7, 2014 | 23 Comments

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. Why the Blog Change? I’ve changed. While I still write often (off line), I don’t […]

ICS – Idea Capture Spreadsheet

| February 4, 2014 | 14 Comments

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

| January 31, 2014 | 3 Comments

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 […]

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

| January 15, 2014 | 6 Comments

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 […]

Why Do I Write about Old Things?

Why Do I Write about Old Things?

| January 8, 2014 | 4 Comments

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. What am I Talking About? I recently wrote an article about […]

Temporarily Deactivating CommentLuv

Temporarily Deactivating CommentLuv

| January 6, 2014 | 8 Comments

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 […]
