On a New Journey

As you all know, I’ve been a bit burnt out with online writing. I’ve had the NJFM blog for several years and it has been dwindling in activity. I just don’t have what it takes in me to make relevant posts on the topic of online writing.

I’ve been dallying around with a few other ventures. Some ventures are from the heart such as my Blulow and HVBokashi blogs, and others are more of a financial nature. Unfortunately, as it always seems to happen, those matters of the heart don’t bring in the money so it’s necessary to engage in activities of a financial nature to keep a roof over the head and bread on the table.New Journey

My New Venture

My latest venture is being chronicled on NJFMII. Yep, since my latest financial endeavor is removed from freelance writing, I didn’t think it right to switch gears and start posting unrelated information here so I created (am in the process of creating) No Job for Mom Phase II. In essence, the goal is the same (no traditional job) but this time I’m using a method other than writing.

If you want to see what I’m up to, you can stop over there to watch my progress. I use the same blogging methods over there as I do here. I share what I’m doing, how I did it and my successes and failures.

There’s not much going on over there right now because the blog is brand new. Over time, just like this blog, it will grow.

It's Been FunNJFM has been a nice ride and will remain alive on the internet, but I can’t say it will be updated regularly. I’ll try to remember to share my monthly income but I can’t guarantee that I’ll be able to offer anymore than that.

Thanks to all of you who made NJFM what it is. Although some of the information is outdated, the premise remains consistent. If you think you can or you think you can’t you’re right. I choose to believe I can and I hope you do too.

    Nothing stays the same forever and those with the ability to make changes when change becomes necessary are the ones who are the most successful. You are definitely a person who continues to learn and grow, so I am not surprised that you are moving in a new direction. Good luck with your new endeavors. You had great successes with online writing and you will no doubt be successful in whatever you choose to do. I’m heading over to your new blog right now to see what you are up to!

    I’m following you there and jumping in the Vitel way!

      Thanks everyone for the well wishes. I’m excited about the new opportunity and will keep you guys advised on my progress (and failures).

    Felicia, your NJFM blog has inspired, encouraged and helped my online writing career in ways you may never know. I have become a loyal follower and look forward to reading NJFM Phase II. Wishing you all the best!

    • Felicia June 27, 2012, 9:00 am

      Thanks, Loretta.

      Your support means a lot to me.

  • Crystal June 27, 2012, 9:38 am

    Well, Felicia – I’m excited for you on your new direction and can’t wait to add NJFM PhaseII to my blog list so I can follow you there, as well. Isn’t it fun to explore new ventures? Thanks for continuing to be an inspiration and example for others.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I am so grateful to you and the NJFM community. I’d been looking for ways to make money online through writing and hadn’t had any success until I stumbled across one of your Suite 101 articles and ended up here. You and NJFM get 100% of the credit for getting me started in the right direction and I think of you fondly every time I think of my finances.

    • Felicia June 27, 2012, 11:07 am

      Wow, Crystal. Thanks.

      I may have provided the spark, but you did all the work.

  • Ignatius June 27, 2012, 1:15 pm

    I wanted to add my good wishes to all those posted here. Thanks for all the good information you have offered at NJFM. Best of luck with the new venture!

    • Felicia June 28, 2012, 8:16 am

      Thanks, Ignatius. Your contributions have been valuable here. You’ve guided me though a few tough spots and I’m sure you’ve helped my readers as well.

  • Alexander Mark June 27, 2012, 4:47 pm

    NJFM has been a seed of inspiration that in my life will continue to grow over a long period of time. Thank you for all your hard work, your amazing posts and allowing me to see what blogging is about from a personal and inside perspective. I am sure I will carry some of your ideals and personality into my future blogs. Now on to NJFM II!

    • Felicia June 28, 2012, 8:18 am

      What a nice thing to say. Thank you.

  • Crystal June 27, 2012, 9:24 pm

    I am so sad to hear that you are moving onto other ventures as I am new to the No Job For Mom community. However, I’m sure you’ll have amazing future success since you’re so talented!

    • Felicia June 28, 2012, 8:22 am

      Crystal, what I’ve discovered is talent is nice, but it’s the hard work that really counts. I believe everyone is talented in one way or another, but if talent isn’t supported by hard work of developing the talent, it gets wasted.

      I wish you the best in your new venture too.

  • Grandma June 28, 2012, 9:54 am

    Evolution – never stops! 🙂 Happy trails, and we know you will stay in touch here with your popular online baby.

  • Robin Elizabeth Margolis June 28, 2012, 7:01 pm

    Good luck on your new venture and much gratitude for your past help to many writers!


  • Connie Brentford July 8, 2012, 2:01 am

    Good for you Felicia!

    You have inspired a lot of people with your online writing posts (including me) and I wish you well. I mentioned this website as a helpful resource in the first book I wrote. I’m glad you’re leaving it up.

    Best wishes to you on your latest endeavor.

  • Caiden Tate July 8, 2012, 3:27 pm
