Write A Funny Blog

Some days we need to laugh…some days we are unable to. What is today for you?

I often try and interject some humor into my articles and it works when I just let it flow while writing. But have you ever set for yourself the task of purposefully writing what the title indicates will be a funny blog…and you go, “Oh crap, funny don’t leave me now!”

So let’s just write and see what spews forth…unbidden and uncut.

In many of my articles I recommend to Baby Boomers to tell their story and blog what they’re passionate about. I know many of you enjoy a good chuckle and can even spin a lyrical line of prose. I want to encourage you to do that because we need more laughter, more smiles in the world. You will see many blogs that are dedicated to this and include humorous quotes, pictures and jokes. I like to subscribe to some of these because they really do make you smile.

Online marketers and gurus and internet “get-rich-quick” schemes are very much focused on getting you to buy in, share your credit card number, spread the wealth…to them. But do they ever stop and just spin a yarn, tell about the good old days and how rough things were back when? Seems to me that would make them more human and believable.

Silly me, I forgot, they use their hardships to say how bad things were and how great things are now. Let me try one:

• Fourscore and a bunch more other years ago I was living a normal life with my 5 siblings

• Everything was average: my house, my family, my school…my marks

• Graduated high school and moved on to college after receiving a swift kick in the rump to get me off it.

• And then a job that I took and kept because it paid the bills, let me get married, and have kids

• But I rose above it all anyways!

• This average Joe didn't need that high school education, didn't need college or the job, didn't need to get…(oops, better stop there before I get myself in trouble).

• Now I’m an internet guru and I’m here to tell you how you can make truckloads of money…I supply the trucks!

• Sign up now for “Joe’s Money By The Truckload” online super-duper internet work at home business. You will never need another job…the trucks will keep showing up on your driveway packed with the money you’re going to make with this program.

Don’t just learn how to drive traffic to your site…learn how to drive traffic to your house!

OK, enough of that. Hope I don’t get “Google-Spanked” for creating something out of nothing…like some of the real programs I've seen. Unless I had you believing that Joe’s was real and you were pulling out the credit card? Nah, of course you didn't.

But seriously folks, you do have to at least smile at some of the things we see online, right? The things that are being sold nowadays and the millions you are going to make…ludicrous! Sometimes, for fun, I will surf the internet just to see what the “shiny Object” of the day is. What’s the hot ticket item that’s going to make me a fortune? I will confess that when I do this I sit firmly on my wallet or where my sweats which means my wallet is way upstairs and nowhere near the newest opt-in page.

In the alternative, I also find that if you max out your credit card you don’t have to worry about buying scam products or programs. And just think of all the wonderful things you own, physically, from your local shopping mall.

Where was I going with this article? Oh yeah, I wanted to write a funny blog and hopefully you found a few occasions to smile. Why would I do this?

• People like to laugh

• Bloggers can make people laugh

• Blogging is about finding your niche, your passion, and writing about that

• Helping someone smile might help them at a time they truly needed it.

We all need to smile a bit and I’m hopeful this blog helped lift a mouth corner or two out there or brought a bit of a twinkle to your eye.
