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 That’s okay because except for the motivational posts, the rest of the stuff is pretty much outdated.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 […]

Solostream updated the theme I’m using and I intend to install the new and improved version. The upgrade should happen without a hitch, but I’ve learned from experience […]

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.
