Writing For Money


Writing is a funny subject to quantify. You can make money with your writing. Unfortunately you also can lose money, big money, by not writing well.


I’m sure there have been times that you have worked hard and long to put your ideas together with your plan, launched it and ……zip!


Good writing is like the gift wrap on a present. If you use stained old paper grocery bags it not only looks bad but may not even be opened. Now if you find some glitzy, flashy paper and include a terrific bow your gift will be the first to be opened.


So, I’m just saying ….don’t let a great idea go to waste by wrapping it in some old wrinkled news paper. Work on your writing skills or get some help…..like me for instance.


No link here, let’s keep it simple – send me an email at mikeatoz@whatsfunnycopywriting


Let’s have some fun and visit with some great writers –


Mark Twain – ” Politicians are like diapers, they should be changed often and for the same reason.” Doesn’t stink; yeah ?


Twain again – ” It usually takes me more than three weeks to prepare a good impromtu speech.”


Groucho Marx – ” There’s only two things you can start without a plan; a riot and a family, for everything else you need a plan.”


Marx again – ” I have nothing but respect for you–and not much of it.”


Tim Vine – “Conjunctivitis.com – that’s a site for sore eyes” It’s funny.


Peter Drucker – “There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all.”


Winston Churchill (my favorite) – “We know that he has, more than any other man, the gift of compressing the largest amount of words into the smallest amount of thought.”


I took you on that brief journey so we could both enjoy some great writing. These comedic thoughts deliver a deeper truth which opens doors allowing fresh ideas into our minds and hopefully, after stewing for awhile, elicits conversation and writing worth reading.


I get so caught up in writing and having fun that I often forget to try and make a little money for myself. Like most of you I peruse sites and offerings online. I have found something interesting, worth your attention, and best of all – it’s free.

    You need to like Channel a deeper you,  when writing don’t be too careful and don’t be too reckless when writing it’s a step by step act moving in the right direction and writing within context is also very important no gyrating when writing it has to be pinpoint and very expressive. It’s a nice thing you’re trying to help people out with this post people who think writing is tedious can finally get over that fear with your help nice post every incisive. Good work

      Thanks for responding Dammy.  When you write you try to deliver a message or convey an idea.  It doesn’t have to be flowery or poetic it only needs to deliver your message.  If your reader “gets” what you are trying to tell them then it’s mission accomplished.

      Good Luck – Mike

    I simply love the quotes ;D 

    I used to write many poem and drafts of articles on my own in my teenage years. 

    A bit of deep into nonsense + a nonsense drafts on any everything that for me means every anything.

    Made me miss it a bit.

    Keep it up with the blog, I will be watching, supporting and cheering up to it!

      Hi Luiz  –  I too love the short quotes. Here’s one from Winston Churchill – ” Americans always try to do the right thing…..after they’ve tried everything else!”

      I believe that what you write about when you are young truly shapes who you are in later years.

      Best Wishes – Mike

    I try to make a living from writing but honestly, I struggle to write well. The writing was never my strongest point, the reason I write for a living is that I love what I write about and it gives me the opportunity to work from home. 

    I love the quotes, learning from the greatest of writers is the way to go! 

    • admin says:

      Hello Holly Rose – Pretty name, my new granddaughter is Lucy Rose!  I think you DO write well.  I also think there are few ways to spend your time more enjoyable than writing about things you love.  You may be fortunate enough to have a “conversation” with people born 50 or 100 years from now via your writing and that’s exciting.

      Thank You – Mike

    Nice, quick little read.

    I have a few questions! Do you work for CTFO? If yes, how do you make money with them? I currently take CBD oil and am an affiliate with the companies I purchase from, but it almost seems like you may work for this company? I’m curious!

    Also I think with every new experience we have our writing gets better. When we try new things, say yes to good opportunities and dare I say, “live a little” ..our writing flourishes. This is my experience anyhow and not everything I write gives me chills, but I hope to portray my thoughts through my words and connect with others.

    Thanks for sharing,

      Hi Ciara – I work independently and represent companies or “affiliate” only with those that I believe in.  So I do not work for CTFO but I am an affiliate and I happened to use their sleep aid last night and feel great this AM.  You can certainly check them out their program is free – please go back to my piece and click the link to arrive at CTFO.

      I agree with you about writing; it is like most everything in that the more we practice the better we get.

      Thank You – Mike

    I enjoyed reading these great quotes from these great writers. Marx really bad me laughing there but it’s very true because I actually started a family without thinking, thankfully working out nicely so far. I really want to join this CBD oil train because it looks like it’s the next big deal.

    warm regards

      Hi Louis – Groucho Marx was funny; Karl Marx, not so much !  I do enjoy the one-liners. Thanks for your reply and yes the CBD products are so hot.  If you link in from my site you can get a free landing page and become an affiliate.  Best Wishes – Mike

    Aww reading your article was fun. I didn’t find it boring at all. You are just creative and I love you for that!  I thought everything would end on just ways of improving writing skills but little did I know that you already have a product you want to use the avenue to sell. Anyway CBD oil is good as I have learnt about it.

    • admin says:

      Hello Kenechi – Well our writing is intended to make us some money at some point isn’t it?  We should have fun and write about things that interest us while offering a beneficial service of some kind to our readers.

      Best Of Luck To You – Mike

  7. Chris says:

    I would love to be able to write for money online but the last site which I used became so fussy, it was impossible to get any work accepted there (aka a big waste of time!). 

    I’m really pleased to have found your contact details here as I’m needing someone experienced to help me with my writing – I will be in contact soon (and thanks for reaching out with your help!). 

    • admin says:

      Hi Chris – It’s true that you have to find a partner that you are comfortable with and have the same writing goals. I think the AWAI ( click through on my post ) group provides as much or more information and assistance than any group.  I recommend them above all others.

      Best Of Luck – Mike

    Hi, Howdy Mikeatoz

    Thank you for writing this excellent article with some specific information about the topic “Writing for money”. I have learned many tips after reading your article and I believe this will be a great knowledge for my other friends also. I have a little bit of concern about CTFO. Do you have any other explanation about it? I am going to share it with my friend also.

    • admin says:

      Hi Seofarhan –  Writing can be fun when you write about things you’re interested in, information you’d like to share.

      I think it’s best that you check out CTFO and CBD products for yourself – don’t have to take my word for it – The site is free, they set you up with a page if you’re interested and they provide a lot of educational material.  If you connect from my post I’d appreciate it.

      Thank You – Mike

    Thank you for this interesting information. I have heard of CBD products before and the numerous health benefits, especially the anti aging properties. However, I am hearing about CTFO (charging the future outcome) for the very first time. Thank goodness it is a product of CBD. As a fan of CBD products, I plan to buy CTFO soon and be a beneficiary of its numerous health benefits. 

    • admin says:

      Hello Abiodun –  The CTFO program and site they provide for you is free ….yeah that’s a great price.  My wife & I have tried several products and have been pleased; didn’t want to recommend it without testing.

      Please go to my post and link through to CTFO and check it out.

      Thanks – Mike
