Scrapers, Spam and No Follow

When I turn on the computer in the morning, one of the first things I do is review yesterday’s stats. Sometimes I’ll check to see where the views are coming from.

Thesis 2.1 Page Numbering

(Warning: If you don’t use Thesis WordPress theme, ignore this post) This post reminds me of why I originally created NJFM. NJFM serves as my memory. I know there are programs like Evernote and a host of other apps and software programs that could remind me of missed appointments and the like, but none of [...]

The Sad Facts of My Online Writing Income

A Full Circle Moment

Now that I’m taking a reflective view of my online writing, I realize I am coming full circle. When I started writing online I created a catch-all site called Tidbits & Stuff. I enjoyed playing around with the site and was thrilled to learn I could earn money doing something I enjoyed. Wanting to learn [...]

Ad-less Browsing
