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 […]

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 […]

And the Internet Moved On…

While I was busy not doing anything online, the Internet kept evolving. The other day I was browsing around (when I really should have been doing homework) and I discovered my sites are dinosaurs. I sort of knew they were dinosaurs, but didn’t want to take the time to bring them up to date. They […]

If you come to NJFM the week after Christmas and it’s not here, it’s not because I took NJFM down. Well, I probably inadvertently took it down.

I’m a big fan of Infolinks. I use them on just about all of my money making blogs. Recently they sent out a newsletter spreading the news about a new graphic  they created on the mind of a blogger. The graphic was well done and well thought out (well, mostly well thought out). It is […]

Over the past few days I noticed my Google earnings had dropped significantly. I couldn’t figure out why the drop, but I know the Internet is a fickle beast so I didn’t lose much sleep over it. Knowing that I can’t control Google, I continued on doing what I do, playing around behind the scenes […]

While I’m contemplating my direction for the next 5 years of my online journey, I decided to play around behind the scenes on a few of my blogs. In doing so I happened upon the plug-in called Broken Link Checker. If you have a WordPress blog and are not already using this plugin, I strongly […]

February 7th will mark my 5th year anniversary of quitting my part-time job in an attempt to earn money as an online writer. In those 5 years I’ve earned and learned quite a bit. The largest contributing factor to my online writing success was the decision to transition from up front to residual earnings. The […]

Oh boy, I’m busier than a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs! My desire to upgrade my Tidbits site has taught me another valuable lesson. Here’s the lesson: When converting a site from Joomla to WordPress (or changing platforms), do not change the category structure or the file naming convention. In other […]
