Everything Old is New Again

Everything Old is New Again

My regular readers will notice something vaguely familiar about this WordPress theme. Yep, you guessed it, it’s the old WordPress theme with a few color changes (I’m still working on the color thing). It’s a long story, but here’s why the change… It’s All About the Sitemap This whole thing started because I was working […]

Google for Domains…Who Knew?

Google for Domains…Who Knew?

This may be old hat for a lot of you, but for some reason I was totally oblivious to Google for Domains. Apparently the feature has been available for awhile and the link has been on my Google AdSense account, but I never paid it any mind. Yesterday, I decided to look into it. I […]

Writing Code of Ethics

Writing Code of Ethics

I’ve said a time or two here on NJFM that my goal is to help other writers by sharing my freelance writing experiences, thoughts and tips. When searching for new writing opportunities I keep in mind that not all writers come from America and therefore cannot participate in some of the opportunities presented here. For […]

Google Indexing Speed

Google Indexing Speed

Some time ago, I wrote a post about switching one of my Google-step-child-sites from a hand coded site to a Joomla site. I made the switch because I originally hand coded the site several years ago and things have changed since then (and I’ve learned a lot since then). Not to belabor the point (for […]

Wasting Time? Make Money with CloudCrowd

Wasting Time? Make Money with CloudCrowd

I think of CloudCrowd as an internet game where I can earn money. At CloudCrowd you get paid for completing tasks. You get paid real money (not game money) and you get paid on the next business day after your tasks are approved. Here’s the Info on CloudCrowd In order to gain access to CloudCrowd […]

What the Heck is qq829.com?

What the Heck is qq829.com?

This weekend I noticed a few odd entries in my web traffic stats. There were multiple visits from several addresses in China. While the hits came from various cities in China, the one thing they all had in common was the weblink. The link came from an address that looked something like this: www.qq829.com/web_stat.asp?dn=www.websitename.com Of […]

Shvoong: Get Paid to Write Reviews

Shvoong: Get Paid to Write Reviews

With an odd sounding name I had to check them out.  Shvoong is a website of reviews. They review books, movies, games, and more. Sign up is easy, free and automatic. Google Page Rank: 6 Alexa Rank: 3,092 Age: Domain name was first registered in December of 2004 If you like reviewing things, than Shvoong […]

Oh the Poor Naked Cat

Oh the Poor Naked Cat

I’m going to have to come up with another phrase instead of my usual “There’s more than one way of skinning a cat.” I’m sure PETA probably has me in their cross hairs by now. Anyway, I wrote this post because I read Robin’s comment on her Linked In group  Freelance Writers Working for Content […]

Factoidz? Maybe Not

Sorry guys, I felt I had to put out a quick post to retract my last one (I made a notation on the original post, but who goes back to read an already read post). After receiving a few comments regarding Factoidz’ payment habits, I did a little snooping around their forums. When I saw […]

Another Writing Site: Factoidz

Another Writing Site: Factoidz

Please read the update at the bottom of this post. I recently came across another freelance writing site called Factoidz. It’s an online revenue sharing site. It’s a relatively young site, but it seems to be growing rather nicely.  Here are a few of the stats: Site Domain Name Registered: 7/5/2008 Current Page rank: 4 […]

Let the Poaching Begin…

Let the Poaching Begin…

The eHow upheaval is causing a feeding frenzy. Just imagine how happy some of the other, less popular (or even popular) content sites were to hear that there are so many disgruntled eHowers. They stand to gain an influx of new writers, content and hopefully readers. I found it interesting to receive an email yesterday […]

Ruffled eHow Feathers

Ruffled eHow Feathers

Further to yesterday’s post, I spent some time reading a particularly lively forum thread over at eHow. The thread reminded me why I don’t visit the forums very often. I usually visit them when there is a software issue or a major change to the site. Usually, if I page through the various comments, I […]

eHow Writers being Converted to Demand Studio Writers

eHow Writers being Converted to Demand Studio Writers

Oh Man… Just when I thought I had it all figured out, Demand Studios/eHow pulls a fast one. If you have received the latest email from eHow, you know what I’m talking about. If you haven’t received it, here it is: Demand Studios is now the exclusive writing platform for eHow.com. Hi Tidbits, Today, we […]

iNJFM: Monetizing a Blog with Zazzle

iNJFM: Monetizing a Blog with Zazzle

I recently received an email from a writer asking for advice on how to earn money from her own writing site. I probably should have answered, “When I start making money from my site, I’ll let you know.” Don’t get me wrong, I do earn some money here, but just about all of my other […]
