Toying Around with Plugins

I just found a cool little plugin to help me keep track of my monthly writing goals (checkout the progress bar on the right).  I find that charting my progress works well for me.  The only way I was able to maintain this month’s membership in the Double O Club was because I charted my [...]

Neat Little WordPress Plugin for Moving Comments

I quickly found yesterday, that I needed a plugin to help me take comments from one post and place them on another. It’s not that I’m changing the content of the comments, it’s just that I felt the comment would better serve the community (not to mention keep me on track), if the comments were [...]

Do You Have a Sitemap?

If you have a website or a blog and you have not added your site map to Google Webmaster tools, you should take the time to do so. Back in the Stone Age when I first got online I barely knew what a sitemap was. I spent some time reading in various forums trying to [...]

Switching Blog Themes: Is it Worth It?

Here’s the scoop. It’s quite obvious that NJFM is undergoing a transformation. The reason for the change is several fold: The old theme stopped working behind the scenes.

I’ll Probably Hate Myself in the Morning

Ok, I admit it. I’m releasing a half-baked blog interface. I was quite tired of the old blog interface and knew that I needed something different. I wasn’t quite sure what I was looking for so I spent time visiting other blogs in an attempt to get some ideas for my new WordPress theme. I [...]

Into Each Life a Little Rain…

The past three days were a bit of an online challenge for me. A bored ne’er do well decided to test the security on my blogs. Apparently this person had a pretty good time inserting links for one of the well known male enhancement drugs (I hesitate to use such words on this blog for [...]

My 200th Post

This is my 200th blog post and it saddens me that the topic couldn't be something more inspiring or thought provoking.  Instead it has to be about spam and CAPTCHA. Some time ago I wrote a post  about CAPTCHA boxes and how annoying I found them to be.  Unfortunately, because No Job for Mom has [...]

The Dreaded WordPress Upgrade

Ever since I started this blog a year ago, I've been using the same word press version of software. (I think).  I can't even tell you which version it is because I don't know where to look for it.  I might have upgraded it once when it was an easy automatic upgrade but when WordPress [...]
