Extreme Heat and the Freelance Writer

The longer I work as an online freelance writer the more perks I find. Many of us are living through a pretty intense heat wave right now. I’m probably one of the few people that is thoroughly enjoying it. I’ve always had a preference for heat as opposed to cold. The only time the heat [...]


LeechBlock for Online Time Efficiency

I’m reading the 4 Hour Workweek by Timothy Ferriss for the second time.  If you haven’t read it yet, I suggest you borrow it from your local library (as I’ve done) or purchase a copy.  I’ve borrowed it twice from the library and think it’s time for me to purchase my own copy. What I [...]


With my new online writing strategy I decided to go through my existing blogs, my computer hard drive, my hosting account, databases and anything else that’s related to earning money online and clean out the deadwood. Because I’ve created and discontinued so many blogs, my HostGator account had quite a few unused databases so I [...]


Small Steps to Success

A long time ago I wanted to work from home. So now I do. After I worked from home I realized that I didn’t like the job-like feeling of writing for up-front paying sites, so now I write mainly for sites that pay on the residual model. I then realized I preferred creating my own [...]


This blog gives beginners a glimpse into one person’s online writing journey. It is not a how to blog or a must follow blog. It’s just a blog chronicling my successes, failures and ideas. Why for Beginners I say it’s a blog for beginners because beginners usually lack confidence, have a lot of questions and [...]


The Other Side of the Writing Coin

I finally got around to putting my specs together in order to hire a few Textbroker writers to write some content for me. It was an interesting experience. The one thing I did learn about this experience is that I am a freelance writer. As a freelance writer I find it difficult to hire other [...]


Hyper Sensitivity and Point of View

This post is sort of a rant, but I guess it’s more of a commentary on the sad state of our hypersensitivity. I received an email today from someone who read one of my older articles. This person apparently took exception to the fact that I used the words “darn it.”   The article is [...]


My Unofficial Online Writing Degree

February 9th marks my 4-year anniversary of the beginning of my online writing career.  It’s almost like completing 4 years of college.  In usual Felicia mode, I have to look back and reflect.  You know, there’s something about aging that makes a person more reflective. Fortunately, I’ve kept an electronic journal.  My journal started the [...]


Help from the NJFM Community

Sometimes I get emails for help that I feel would be handled better if I share it with the NJFM community.  I like helping folks, but my experience and knowledge is limited.  Another of my favorite sayings is, “You don’t have to know the answers; you just have to know were to go to get [...]


Smelling the Roses

I think I need to take a little time to smell the roses.  Over the past four years I’ve spent quite a bit of time writing on line.  I’ve spent quite a bit of time wasting my time online too.  It just seems that I always have a computer attached to the end of my [...]
