Computer Stuff (Backups, Reformatting and Upgrades)

After spewing forth words that I care not to repeat here on this family friendly blog, I bit the bullet, reformatted my computer and upgraded to Windows 7. Why the Delay?

EGADS, They’re Home Again…

EGADS, They’re Home Again…

Let me start this post by saying that I love my children! They are the driving force for just about everything I do. After all, this blog would be called “No Job for This Woman” rather than “No Job for Mom” if I weren’t a mom. Home from School That being said…they’re home from school […]

A NJFM Shout Out

A NJFM Shout Out

I have to give a shout out to Grandma. Grandma is one of the frequent readers and contributors to this blog. She’s especially knowledgeable about the goings on over at Textbroker. In the midst of her freelance writing Grandma discovered a need that was not being met by the existing ‘articles for sale’ type of […]

My USA Today Interview about eHow

My USA Today Interview about eHow

Wow, I was mentioned in a USA Today article about Richard Rosenblatt, the owner of Demand Media which owns eHow and Demand Studios among other online sites. About a week or so ago I was interviewed by Jeff Graham of USA Today. I didn’t get too excited because I’ve been interviewed before by other reporters […]

You Gotta Get Active In Order to Enjoy Passive Income

You Gotta Get Active In Order to Enjoy Passive Income

I was on Kidgas’ blog today and his final statement on a recent post made me chuckle “Just wish that passive income was less active.” He’s got a point, but residual income becomes more passive and less active over time. The amount of initial activity usually depends on two things: How much money you want […]

Writing – The Mind/Body Connection

Writing – The Mind/Body Connection

Last night I had the pleasure of attending parents’ night at my daughter’s school. It’s my annual chance to follow my daughter’s class schedule to undergo a condensed version of her day. I started out in her homeroom and then walked around the school going to all nine of her classes. At the end of […]

Playing the Weekly Writing Paycheck Game

Playing the Weekly Writing Paycheck Game

Am I the only silly one or do you guys play the paycheck game? For those of you who are not familiar with the game, the object is to constantly increase one’s weekly paycheck from month to month. Here are the rules: The first month of the freelance writer’s paycheck game is all about setup […]

Jack of all trades, master of...

Jack of all trades, master of…

As a freelance writer, I find that I am a jack of all trades and a master of very few. Part of becoming a successful writer is the ability to do research, digest information and spit it out in your own way with your own flair. How well one does this can be a double-edged […]

Adding HubPages to My Freelance Writing Arsenal

Adding HubPages to My Freelance Writing Arsenal

Very recently I became interested in HubPages. I became inspired to try HubPages after reading Lissie’s blog (If you haven’t visited her blog you should do so). It seems that her success with HubPages is similar to my success with Suite 101. She’s been with them for a couple of years and it’s paying off. […]

The Evolution of an Employee’s Dream

The Evolution of an Employee’s Dream

Back in my days as a full-time employee, my dream was to be able to telecommute. Telecommuting meant working the same job but just doing it from home while remaining in full communication with the office. By telecommuting I could buy back some of my time, but I had to make sure to be accessible […]

 A Little Motherly Writing Advice

A Little Motherly Writing Advice

I would be remiss if I were to constantly encourage writers to build a steam of residual income without also encouraging writers to commit to making healthy choices. The reason for the double commitment (residual income & health) is because they compliment each other. Finding a Balance It is extremely easy to become so focused […]

Summer is Having Its Way with My Writing Schedule

Summer is Having Its Way with My Writing Schedule

No matter how hard I try, summer is having its way with me. With the entire family home it’s been difficult to write. After experiencing this writing slump (not totally self inflicted), I realize that I have to make a few changes in my writing strategy. Next year I’ll be prepared for the summer slump. […]

Why I Love Residual Writing Income

Why I Love Residual Writing Income

The other day I was talking to my brother about work, writing, jobs, etc.  He’s a successful executive and travels extensively.  There are times when he’s out of town more days in a month than at home.  For his troubles, he’s paid handsomely. Being more of a free spirit I enjoyed earning money according to […]

A Blown eHow Opportunity

A Blown eHow Opportunity

Today one of my articles was featured as the eHow of the day. Last week I was contacted by someone on staff regarding the main picture for the article. Apparently the size picture I use is smaller than the “eHow of the day programming tool” requires, so she asked if I would mind if she […]

When Life Happens...

When Life Happens…

Recently we’ve been dealt a rather large dose of life. From time to time we all have to deal with things that are out of the ordinary. Sometimes the life doses are small and other times they’re large. This time life dealt us a biggie. The wonderful thing about being a freelance writer and dealing […]
