Make Money Blogging!

Ha!!  He laughs at the amount of time I spend blogging.

“What do you get out of it?”  says my husband, John.  “You should be penning a best seller, not giving your stories away for free.  You don’t even have banner ads on your blog!”

John will eat his words when he reads how I can earn the big bucks. Because I just got this business proposition:

Hi. Good afternoon.

I am a blog administrator and I manage a team of solid writers who are passionate about a wide range of topics.

I was wondering if you’d be open to a guest blogging opportunity.
We would pay you $30 for a post on your site (you may choose the topic if you wish) and a small link to our blog at the end of the post in an author bi-line.

If you are interested in working with us, please write me back.

Cheers

I’m going to make a fortune.  At last, the big bloggy payoff.  Nice!

  2. Such skeptics! How do you KNOW this isn’t for real? And for that matter, how does anyone KNOW that those sex enhancement creams and spells don’t actually work? 😉

  8. That’s awesome. And I bet your paycheck will be EVEN more than $30 because they need you to “deposit” into your bank and send them a bank check (keeping your salary and a generous administration fee, of course) because your Great-Great-Great-Fifth-Cousin-Nephew passed away and left you some money but the administrator of the will said you would be required to blog first.

    • Oh no! My Great-Great-Great-Fifth-Cousin-Nephew passed away? I didn’t even know! I’m heartbroken, I am sure. Or I will be as soon as I remember who he is and transfer all my banking info to his estate.

  9. Jealous. I only get atrociously worded, grammar challenged spam messages telling me things like “The belt utilizes gel pads postioned over the center abdominals and
    the outdoors obliques.”

  11. Scammer Spammers have evolved my bullsh*t meter by leaps and bounds. There once was a day when I was quite gullible and naive, and believed entirely too much. These days, I’m quite crusty and incorrigibly wary, and don’t believe in hardly anything. Except, of course, sharing the humor when we find it. Thanks for the smile. 🙂

  24. You’ll make $30, but how much do you need to pay these fine folks for the honor of allowing you to blog? I’m sure once you give them the details of you bank account so that they can direct deposit your earnings, you’ll see the money roll in (or roll out.)

  25. Can’t wait to see what subject you write about, Elyse? Penis enhancement? Sex toys?

    Tell your hubby that I have actual ads on my site, they’ve been on there almost one year and I’ve made exactly 13 bucks and 50 cents. So I am well on my way to retiring from blogging.

    • I once actually got a call from someone who claimed to have a male enhancement product that he wanted to market. He was determined that I was going to invest in his product and help him get it to market. He wouldn’t go away and kept calling me back. I finally told him I was gay because I couldn’t think of any other way to get rid of him.

      Guys who spend all their time thinking of male enhancement products do not know what to say to gay women. Keep that under your hat should you ever need it.

        Remember….one of my blogging mentors CulturalOffering.com, suggested that the reason we blog is to amuse ourselves….if anyone else enjoys it, great….but it is a daily look out our window.
