Things are still incredibly busy at this time of the year, but I did manage to find a little time to think about how I can make this time next year a little easier. I looked back at the past few weeks and realized that if I had hired someone to take on some of […]

First of all, I want to apologize for not adding new posts here at NJFM. The weather is getting nice and the real world is taking precedence over my virtual world. I’m sure we are all pretty swamped with birthdays, graduations, weddings, proms, spring/summer gardening, aging parents (oops, sorry to let that one slip, but […]

Oh No, Here She Goes Again with Her Stats…

Oh No, Here She Goes Again with Her Stats…

| May 4, 2010 | 12 Comments

When I don’t feel like writing, I play around with stats. From the number of stat related posts here on NJFM, you can see that it’s quite often that I don’t feel like writing. When I look at my stats I always wonder how much more money I would be making if I wrote more […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Lessons Learned as an Online Freelance Writer

Lessons Learned as an Online Freelance Writer

| March 25, 2010 | 9 Comments

There are tons of self-help books, ebooks and blogs on how to become a successful freelance writer. I’ve read a few of them and I guess I’ll never make it big as a freelance writer. Maybe it’s my age, maybe it’s because I no longer feel the need to prove myself, or maybe it’s because […]

Switching Blog Themes: Is it Worth It?

Switching Blog Themes: Is it Worth It?

| March 23, 2010 | 14 Comments

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. There were too many errors and the load was too slow. I wanted something lighter and airier and easier for me to handle. NJFM, although I love […]

You guessed it. This is another post on earning residual income. The other day I was listening to an old copy of a Brian Tracy CD that my hubby had. My hubby is the ultimate positive thinker. The glass is ALWAYS half full with him. That’s a wonderful trait, but every once in a while […]
