Top 5 Funny Things I Love About Blogging

As I write this post, I’m smiling from chin to chin. Would you blame me?

I don’t know about you, but blogging can be funny at times.

Did you know that a lot of people actually started their blogs because of the income reports they read from someone else’s blog? I told you that this post is going to make your day.

Yes, those set of bloggers who were inspired to get a domain name didn’t consider the hard work, the pain, the nightmares and all the risks of entering into a new realm – yes, blogging is like a world of its own.

As promised, the goal of writing this post is to lift you up.

If you are down right now, it’s time to cheer up. Even if you find “just” one point funny, my goal is achieved. Enjoy and leave a comment.

1.      You can become rich from someone else’s sweat

Wow, how on earth can you achieve that? On the internet, anything you can imagine is possible. Trust me, it is.

Most people spend their precious moments working, writing, editing, proofreading, creating, shooting and packaging valuable products for the target audience. If you’re a blogger, you may not subject yourself to all those severe “punishments.”

You can just fold your arms, and watch every step authors and product creators take. By the time they’re through with their products – you can join and make some BIG ‘funny’ commissions. Guess what I’m talking about?

You got it right – affiliate marketing. Look at it for a moment. A serious marketer suffered to gather facts and made a valuable product – you just appeared from nowhere to earn from it. I Love Blogging!

You could even earn extra income trading binary options. Read this Banc De Binary review to get started. You’ll like it.

2.      You can’t believe it, some bloggers hadn’t updated their blogs for the past 3 months!   Funny Blogger

Aha, I’ve given you a thought to think about today.

If you’re one of such persons who bear the title of a “blogger” but have totally neglected your business tool, what’s your excuse?

I accept, some people are TRULY busy – but is that a yardstick for negligence?

Don’t throw a stone at me; I’ve two bloggers right now who are close friends of mine by the way.

They launched their blogs (installed wordpress CMS) 3 months ago.

As I write this, they still have 2 blog posts only: (1). Why they started a blog (2). Hello! Can someone tell me how they’re going to build a profitable blog?

3.      Social media addicts see themselves as bloggers

Another bang, if you ask me. Have you seen people who spend the bulk of their times tweeting, sharing and chatting with friends and family, and if you ask them what they do – they’d have the guts to say “I’m a blogger”.

First, blogging is a type of social media networking. Any platform that connects people together can be seen from the social ladder – but wasting time on those social media giants with the hope of making it big at blogging is a waste of time.

It’s funny, it is wickedness to your business and I admonish you to reconsider it. Yes, twitter and Facebook marketing is still required to gain traction online.

But ideally, you should spend the bulk of your time writing and marketing. You can’t promote what you’ve not produced. Think about it!

4.      75% of bloggers who are broke didn’t monetize at all

Each time I consider this point, it’d cause me to laugh out loud. The truth is, some of your bloggers’ friends who complain that making money blogging is a myth aren’t monetizing at all. Or better yet, they hadn’t monetized properly in the past.

How can someone complain that a particular system failed, when they’re yet to try it? To me, it’s like saying that your new born baby cries so much, when you’ve never heard him/her cry. If you take a look at your blog, can you beat your chest and say that you’re monetizing effectively?

If you’re not, there is no need to complain or point accusing fingers to lack of targeted traffic, or Google Panda (or the sisters: Penguin and EMDs). Go and add an income generating offer on your blog this very moment – then worry about targeted traffic and sales afterward.

5.      You can “steal” someone’s headline and craft yours

A lot of bloggers and writers are stuck on the headline. They don’t know how to write the one that can generate clicks. You should realize that the headline can determine whether your post ever goes viral or perish in the dungeon.

But that’s why blogging is an interesting career to pursue. You could just look at my headline for this particular post, copy it to your notepad or word editor and craft yours.

You could just change the word “funny” to “awesome” or “simple” and bam – that’s your own headline and no one can sue you for it – not even me.

So, why must you complain that you’ve problems with crafting attractive headlines? Guess what professional bloggers does? They’d simply look at the headlines that piqued their minds.

Then, they’d “steal” the idea and dazzle their readers with a better title. Even if you call them copycats, they’re raking in 6-figure income. Truth be told, this is how successful bloggers started their journey.

Visit your favorite blogs. Read the popular posts to see what the headlines have in common. Then study, jot down key points and write a stellar one. My little secret shared!

If you don’t comment, you’re funny

    Very good info you shared here. Thanks man!

    I have read on a blog few weeks ago and I have it in my mind since than that ”old people always do what they want” no matter what you do and what you say, they always do what they want.
    I found this very funny. Do you think is funny man?

    1. It’s funny Daniel. Permit me to see those old people as pro bloggers who have mapped out strategies for making money. The truth is that no matter the latest hot trend flying around, they don’t get distracted one bit.

      But beginners keep flying with the noise. That’s why they fail and give up. Don’t be like them – be you and your readers would go to bed with you. Hahahaha!

      1. I. C. Daniel says:

        Ha Ha Ha – Damn… that’s funny :))
        Interesting stuff you said here: ”don’t be like them” – I understand from here to stick on my niche and neither when I’m bored to let it go right?

        You’ve seen my niche I start on YpayZ.com ?

        I think is a good one, pretty hard to beat but hope I make some money one day. What you think about this too?

        I know it may sound stupid but I’m reading some motivation tips,
        I also need some if you know and you like to share I’ll be glad to hear from you what is the secret why you didn’t get bored when you start blogging because I guess you didn’t have success from the day one :)) ?

        Comment is quite long sorry for that if I bother, I just wanted ask once and then don’t need to bother again. Best regards from I.C. Daniel

        1. Sure, I didn’t achieve success from day one. I was motivated by my passion. I love helping people, seeing them appreciate me for what I’m doing. That’s how I started my blog and it’s gradually replacing my 9-5 paycheck. I checked your blog, but didn’t find content yet? Did you just launch it? Anyways, I wish you the very best my fellow comedian.

          1. I. C. Daniel says:

            Yes is very new. I will focus on how to start make money online – a free guide for beginners.

            I start read very much tips and tricks articles and I will be sharing on my blog soon. Most webmasters do money this way so I said myself to see what they offer and what I can offer to beat them. Pretty hard to tell right now but I find something I’m sure … 😀

            Internet world for me is endless, because of this particular reason I believe my niche can have great potential in future. I’m not hurry man! 😀

            It’s great reading and talking to you Michael I expect other great articles here from you as soon as posible. Best regards I.C. Daniel

    HI Michael

    #2, why they have kept their shop opened if they are not updating lol.

    #5, idea stealing has actually become a buzz word.and it is actually repackaging with a new label.

    Hey Michael,
    Nice post and good points, however I disagree on one of them with the constant updating and I used to think much the same as well.

    At the moment with content and content abuse is one way of looking at it is almost better to keep posts under a certain level to keep quality and actually get more traffic at the same time.. It used to be that more content ruled but all big bloggers can probably agree with me that more content does not equal more traffic..

    How I came about this was that I run around 10 good blogs, some are content heavy and some are not, yet some that only have 30 good posts do better in performance than my ones that have more than 500 posts each of quality.. Hard to believe yeah but Google does not care about lots of content no more, only quality and site function, if one keeps going over the same similar subjects they actually de rank your site as well.. ( hard to believe, but true )

    So my recommendation with number two is to jot down as many topics your niche can handle and stay limited to that is better than just pumping out content, no matter how good it is..

    It depends on how one designs a site, whats its purpose though so each to there own..

    If the sites purpose is leads and sales, a 30 to 50 page site can even become a kingpin site, just by pulling traffic right and pulling leads to sales as an example..

    There goes another problem that is funny, most sites out there even big ones do not have a purpose other than just post, next post.. That is why so many find it hard to make money as well.. Even my 30 page sites lead to sales or a purpose in some way..

    Regards,
    Timon

  4. Which Book to purchase? Blogging with John Chow or Work From No home and what’s the difference in both?

    1. John Chow says:

      Blogging with John Chow is about blogging. Work From No Home is about promoting information products on Clickbank. Ideally, do both.

  5. Think Big says:

    love your blog. actually want more information on how to monetize by site

  6. Francesco says:

    Hey John,
    Thankl you for the great post!
    True blogging has allowed people to turn their passions into profits. It does require dedication though. You don;t need your own product. There are tons and tons of products out there that you can just promote and make a commissins from….

  7. Erwin says:

    Hi everyone,

    yes blogging is funny and easy if you have got a good reason to do it! And the reason should be helping other people solve the problem in your niche.

    I love blogging and the hard work because I love to be online but not only playing games or be on social media sites.

    And for me it is fun not hard work.

    All the best and see you on top.

    Erwin.

  8. mohd akbar says:

    Yes, you are right i agree with your all points, And this is a Awesome post…!

  9. faisal says:

    Funny thing – MMO blogs have a post on how to make money almost every year with a twist.

  10. Good post Michael,

    Yeah I have long been amazed at how hard core people are on social media.

    Especially on facebook.
    People pouring out their heart telling their most intimate feelings about everything, WHY?

    I’m like dude why don’t you just register a domain and start a blog?

  11. geekmom says:

    Who needs title stealers when I have someone who goes out and steals my whole branding name? That’s not funny. That’s annoying. What is funny though, when you don’t backup your mail list and then your laptop falls to the ground and bumps the hard drive the same day you move your server and your mail list doesn’t quite make it over there and you were relying on your own software. One reason why I always go with an external source now. *whistles*

    1. Now that one is serious. Yes, it’s good to always have external source for your files. Thanks for your comment.

  12. Richard says:

    The first item, the one with affiliate marketing, made me crack. It’s almost like cheating! But hey, if you consider affiliate marketers some bystander who guided someone who needs a lift to a waiting cab then asking the cab driver a commission for the “effort”, it doesn’t sound so bad at all. 😉

    I don’t know where you got #3 though — I mean, it’s just too dumb for some social media addict to claim he’s a blogger.

  13. janye says:

    totally agree. your own web’s content is more important and needed to be built up before you can market the web via tweets or FB.

  14. William says:

    I find it funny that so many people are offering “push button products” that will instantly make your blog make money, or give you an insane amount of traffic. There are certainly good training products and tools out there such as the ones on this website but you have to be careful.

    Everyday my inbox is flooded with the next tool or training that is going to double my traffic or profits. The funniest to me is when I get the email that says something along the lines “look how this Grandma or homeless guy” went from nothing to making $500 dollars a day.

    Blogging can be rewarding, this website is a prime example, but it does take work and effort.

    1. geekmom says:

      William, I see so many people offering 20,000 twitter and facebook fans who say ‘It’s ok, we’ll refund if you’re deleted.” I’m sorry, but my twitter and facebook pages are more important than getting a refund for $30 to $90.

  15. Great post. I’ve been looking into binary options myself. I know there are a couple of platforms online, Banc de Binary being one of them, but can anyone recommend a decent product or training maybe a formula for success or strategy with one of these platforms?

    Thanks

  16. Rellie says:

    Excellent blog post. I definitely have to step my blog game up. Is there a plug in for this comment system?

    I have to approve all comments for my blog or else there will be a bunch of spam.

  17. Hi Michael,
    So right in all five examples, I laughed pretty good when I read the article so my colleagues wondered what I was doing.

  18. Hey Michael,

    Very informative and useful tips.

  19. You got me with your first paragraph

  20. When you were grinning from chin to chin is when I started laughing. It is always a good idea to keep things light
    Thanks

  21. Yoan says:

    Hi there! Yes, blogging can be funny and it is sometimes for me when I recall the “stupid” questions I used to ask at the beginning! It makes me cringe too! Lol!

    I love your third paragraph on Social Media Addicts! I do have issues with social medias! The “Everyone’s talking but no one saying anything” drives me nuts and it certainly isn’t blogging!

    As for not updating blogs, well, I have to admit…I have been there myself, especially when I got started and I was all over the place! I picked niches and topics I didn’t like at all, so…no wonder!

    Anyway, really good post!

    Yoan

  22. Pretty good submit. I became aware of your website in addition to needed to express that i have got genuinely liked looking at your website blog posts.In whatever way Unwell end up being signing up for your nourish in addition to I think you will publish just as before soon.

  23. Hi Michael, and yes, I got an opinion 🙂

    I definitely agree that blogging can be funny at times. And it’s also possible to make money online with a blog. The world is becoming a global village and you can now have customers from anywhere on this planet. I believe that we need time and hard work to generate a substantial online income. It does not come overnight. The harder we work, the earlier the possibility to make money. We should not jump into it thinking we’ll be a millionaire the next day. It’s not a ‘get rich quick’ scheme.
