Need a laugh? Me too. Sometimes I just shake my head at the silly things I hear, read and am personally told when people find out that blogging for companies is a big part of my writing income.

So, fellow writer, grab a cup of coffee, get cozy and check these out. I’m sure some of you can relate!

Here are a few of my favorites…

  1. Wouldn’t it be nice if you would actually get paid to play around with blogging?
  2. So, what type of job do you hope to get someday when you become a professional writer?
  3. Will you write a post about my neighbor’s cat that were doing a fundraiser for so he can go on vacation to a fat cat camp in Maui? We could really use the press.
  4. So, what’s your real job?
  5. It’s too bad you wasted money on that college degree in writing/journalism/marketing/English/web design.
  6. I’d also love to get free stuff without doing any work for it. Can you hook me up?
  7. Does anyone read what you write?
  8. What a fun hobby!
  9. It must be nice to sit back, be creative and just let your mind wander all day and write about whatever you want whenever you feel inspired.
  10. You’re a blogger? Me too! I’ve written two or three posts.
  11. Hey, since you don’t really work, can you help me tomorrow with this project?
  12. You’re so lucky you don’t have to have a job. It must be nice to be rich.
  13. So, do you just cut and paste stuff from other websites, or write things yourself?
  14. I’d love to write too if I had some free time like you do.
  15. So, what do you write? Books?
  16. Have I read anything you’ve written? Refresh my memory!
