Oh the Poor Naked Cat

I’m going to have to come up with another phrase instead of my usual “There’s more than one way of skinning a cat.” I’m sure PETA probably has me in their cross hairs by now. Anyway, I wrote this post because I read Robin’s comment on her Linked In group  Freelance Writers Working for Content [...]

Lessons Learned as an Online Freelance Writer

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 [...]

Peek-A-Boo, I’m back (for now)

I woke up this morning to find that my site was nowhere to be found. Imagine my shock when I typed in my URL and found a blank white page. I’ve got to say, a white page is a nice place to start, but since I’ve been blogging here for a couple of years, a [...]

Digging Out of the Snow

I’m back…finally. I’ve had enough of this indoor camping stuff and I’m glad to be back online. Actually, it really wasn’t that bad. We have a couple of generators so we had lights and I was able to run the portable heaters (I bought the heaters a little while ago when I thought I had [...]

Just a quick post to say that I've been in the dark ages for the past couple of days and I'm not sure when my power/internet access will return.  I managed to find a spot on the floor in the corner of my local Barnes and Noble to gain access to the internet. Everyone is [...]

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? What stopped me from upgrading earlier was that I dreaded the backup/reformat/re-installation/reconfiguration process. I realize it’s not absolutely necessary to reformat the computer to [...]

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

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

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 [...]

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 [...]
