Maximizing My Blogs

As part of tidying up my first online writing phase and transitioning into my second phase, I have to clean up many of my blogs. In addition to consolidating my online properties, I need to clean and maximize the properties I have remaining. First let me say there is no scientific way to go about [...]


Blog Consolidation Process

As I mentioned before, these next few posts are brain dumps for me. I decided to consolidate all but 7 of my blogs. My goal is to complete the consolidation process in 30 days. The process goes something like this: Copy the post from the old blog Paste it into the new blog Copy and [...]


Lipstick on a Pig

Most of us start new sites/blogs because we have a passion for the subject matter. Well, let me re-phrase that. There are some sites we create because we’re passionate about the topic and other sites we create for the money. If the moneymaking sites don’t make money, I recommend getting rid of them because unless [...]


Getting Used to Google’s New Interface

Since receiving the e-mail from Google in which they advise that the old AdSense interface will soon be disabled  and the new one enhanced, I realized it was time for me to start getting warm and fuzzy with the new one. As I clicked around the new interface I found that I had a few [...]


My Favorite WordPress Plugins

It doesn’t cost a dime and you can improve your site’s functionality if you choose the right ones. Here are some that [...]

A Quick Apology

Wow, it appears that my software stopped notifying me of new comments. Thanks Crystal for giving me a nudge. I signed onto NJFM this morning and found quite a few comments waiting.  Hmmm, guess I’ve got to look under the hood to see what’s going on. Sorry guys.


How to Handle Some Comments

On occasion I receive comments with typos. On occasion I upload posts/articles with typos. It happens. When I catch a typo in my work or someone else’s work I either correct it or notify the author of the typo. I’d rather someone correct me than allow my work to stay forever incorrect on the internet.

What the Heck is qq829.com?

This weekend I noticed a few odd entries in my web traffic stats. There were multiple visits from several addresses in China. While the hits came from various cities in China, the one thing they all had in common was the weblink. The link came from an address that looked something like this: www.qq829.com/web_stat.asp?dn=www.websitename.com Of [...]


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. 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 [...]
