WordPress

Since I’m no longer actively blogging, I think it’s time for me to convert some of my old blogs into static HTML websites. Why convert them instead of taking them down? Well, for the most part, a lot of the information on the various blogs is still relevant and continues to be helpful to some [...]

Grammarly: My Unpaid Writing Editor

Edit

Grammarly has become the go-to app for my first round of document editing. I learned about it one day when I was perusing Heath and Alyssa’s blog. I came across their post entitled, Our Most-Used Tools for Project Management and discovered Grammarly. Heath and Alyssa are living my dream life. They’re traveling around in an [...]

WP-Json Invite

The more I fumfer around with my blogs the more I learn about things I wish I didn’t need to learn. This time I learned about WordPress’ wp-json exploit. The wp-json security hole has been around since WordPress version 4.7.0 (circa February, 2017).  Actually, I’m surprised the programmers hadn’t fixed it in the subsequent updates [...]

Blogs: Cleaning, Combining and Redirecting

Filing System

Boy, it’s been forever since I’ve written here on NJFM. The site is mostly dead. I checked my stats and found that I get an average of 3 or 4 visits a day. That’s okay because except for the motivational posts, the rest of the stuff is pretty much outdated. The Internet kept evolving while [...]

Temporarily Deactivating CommentLuv

The amount of spam this blog has been getting is truly outrageous! It is my belief that the CommentLuv plugin is a magnet for spammers. They want backlinks and CommentLuv provides such links. I’m running an experiment for a bit. I have deactivated CommentLuv and am monitoring my spam count. If I find there’s a [...]

Could it be the Theme Change?

Yesterday I noticed a significant increase in traffic after changing one of my blog’s theme to Thesis. This particular blog used to be one of my money making blogs, but after several Google algorithm changes my income was reduced to a trickle. Sunday night I converted the blog to Thesis and on Monday my traffic [...]

And the Internet Moved On…

While I was busy not doing anything online, the Internet kept evolving. The other day I was browsing around (when I really should have been doing homework) and I discovered my sites are dinosaurs. I sort of knew they were dinosaurs, but didn’t want to take the time to bring them up to date. They [...]

Warning

If you come to NJFM the week after Christmas and it’s not here, it’s not because I took NJFM down. Well, I probably inadvertently took it down. Solostream updated the theme I’m using and I intend to install the new and improved version. The upgrade should happen without a hitch, but I’ve learned from experience [...]

I can’t believe this wasn’t on my list of favorite WordPress plugins (I’ve since modified the list to include it). I first installed the Limit Login Attempts plugin some time ago but after forgetting my password a couple of times I disabled it. You see, with so many blogs I don’t always update all of [...]
