The wp-json security hole has been around since WordPress version 4.7.0 (circa February, 2017).  Actually, I’m surprised the programmers hadn’t fixed it in the subsequent updates […]

Blogs: Cleaning, Combining and Redirecting

Boy, it’s been forever since I’ve written here on NJFM. The site is mostly dead. I checked my stats and found that I get an average of 3 or 4 visits a day. That’s okay because except for the motivational posts, the rest of the stuff is pretty much outdated. The Internet kept evolving while […]

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).

(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.

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 […]

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 […]
