BLOGGING FOR FUN - a cranky re-run

This re-run is from June 2013 
I will occasionally joke about blogging or writing for money.  I actually only write because I enjoy writing.  I don’t expect to ever make any money writing and I could care less if anyone ever buys my first book,

“Maybe It’s Just Me” (Which in retrospect I wish I titled “Perhaps it’s just I”)  Which is available at Rosedog book store, or Amazon for $18.00 or $14 if on sale.

It is fine if nobody buys my second book, “I Used to be Stupid” available at Rosedog book store or Amazon for $17, or available on Kindle or Nook for $9.99.  I just do not expect or even care if I make any money on these endeavors, nor do I envision any way of making money off this blog.

I just like to write.  Tonight, Mrs. Cranky went to Lowes Theater to see the movie “Oz” which she loves so much it is her second viewing.  She grabbed a meal at Burger King, her favorite fast food restaurant, so I had to eat alone, while she was driving to the theater in our Toyota Four Runner which we just love.  She probably had to fill it up as I think we were low on Exxon Gas which seems to burn clean and give us great mileage. 

After a delicious meal of Hormel chili, I decided to work on this blog.  I pulled out my reliable Samsung laptop, turned on my Visio TV which has an amazing sharp picture cause yeah; I can multi-task, and started writing.  Even though I am a bit tired, one Five Hour Energy Drink and I am good to go.  

Still, with all that energy, I just can’t find that much to write about so I think I’ll just take a hot shower with Ivory Soap which floats by the way, though not in the shower because we keep the shower drain clear with a monthly shot of Liquid Plumber.  I’ll shampoo of course with some Pantene cause that keeps my hair soft and luxurious and my scalp nice and shiny.  Then I’ll brush my teeth with Crest which keeps my teeth cavity free and my breath minty fresh and turn in for the night.  I expect to sleep well because my Sealy Posturepedic is so comfortable.

Anyway, after I set the alarm on my I-phone (which I love) so I can get up in time for a breakfast of Aunt Jamima pancakes and Oscar Meyer bacon along with Eggland’s Best Eggs, I plan to sleep like a baby and dream I saw a movie star in her Maidenform Bra.

I know I could never sleep at all if I used this blog to make money whoring various products.  I just enjoy writing and will never sell out.

Some compensation may or may not have been given in lieu of any favorable mention of certain products which I would only mention within the context of my post, and I would never endorse a product I did not use and believe in.


  1. You sure mentioned a lot of products, but you didn't link them. I don't think you're making any money without those links. I'm just saying.

    Have a fabulous day Cranky. ☺

  2. I'm never sure if people can actually make a living blogging. I've never been known to open any advertisements people would have on their blogs. But if you were able to get some money through blogging, I think its wonderful :)


  3. Hey, maybe you will at least get some free Crest. The beauty of blogging is that you don't have to wait long to find out if what you wrote works. Instant gratification works for me.
    Keep your blog posts and humor coming.

  4. I am the proud owner of both your books, which I purchased on the internet because it is so convenient. What is your return policy?

  5. Clever, but i can guarantee the ones you spelled incorrectly are going to stop payment on the check.

  6. The only time I ever got anything tangible from a company was by complaining. Maybe you will catch more sponsorship money with vinegar than with honey. Get your cranky on.

  7. Yeah...what Val said! I've emailed companies and told them (nicely) what was wrong with their product. Once I received a year's supply of shampoo and conditioner.

    Glad you enjoy blogging, because I certainly enjoy reading!

  8. If you ARE making any money off of your blog, you are my hero. I've had a small check or two from some (no doubt) unscrupulous sources, for inserting a link here and there, but if I had to live on that money... well, I wouldn't be typing this because I'd be starved to death.

  9. Hmmmmm - tell you what........I'll borrow my sister's copy and take it from there........!

  10. Hahaha! I hope you DID get paid for this! I love the last sentence of your disclaimer paragraph too; I always eye-roll when I see that on a blog post :)
