Headline: Bettor Risks It All!"


Can it really be? “The best way to make "Big Bucks" online is to see something ridiculous going on somewhere in the world, write about it, and publish it!”

If so, online journalers should all be ridiculously wealthy! There are lots of ridiculous things going on in the world.

We could start at the top of the list. There are lots of murders going on in the world, even state-sponsored in Syria and a number of other places. Then there are the gang shootings, and the drug lords ordered assassinations. Close to the top of ridiculous goings on has to be humans of all ages starving to death in a world that could feed them adequately and might like to, if only it was more convenient and safe to do so.. We wouldn't want people dying just to save lives, would we?

Love has some ridiculous aspects which can make "Big Bucks" online, especially if the “love” in question is lasting (which is not so ridiculous) or very short and involves a famous celebrity who has become notorious as a “serial killer of marriages” (as often as not to simply “get some kicks", pick up a bauble or two, and reap the publicity from “the smut papers” the same online readers pick up frequently at the nearest grocery store.

Wealth, especially ridiculous wealth, is a hot topic too. Where did it come from and where is it going, especially wealth that is within the dreaming range of the “average Joe” and “average Joann” such as the mega bucks lotteries , or the bettor in Las Vegas who puts everything in one shot on the red or the black (though for the maximum impact online it’s important that the bettor wins!)

Somewhere down from the top and nearer the bottom of the "Big Bucks List" are the following: real heroes, kind neighbors, valiant struggles, anything the government does well and efficiently, and…you get the idea.

An excellent recent article I read was a fictional story which made one person the heroine of a series of tragedies all drawn simply from a single day’s newspaper! Ridiculous?

As for poems, if you want to make money getting those published, your best bet lies in sales to greeting card companies! No medals and certificates for those, just plain money, but plan to write a lot of them for some marginal returns.

For the "Big Bucks" stick to the ridiculous, and start at the top of the list for the quickest results.

Wow Perspycacious-

This doesn't sound like you at all. Get up on the wrong side of the bed?

win-winresources: I should be entitled to a cynical day once in awhile shouldn't I? I think I am reacting to the currently popular "heart attack burger" being a real winner, though to me it seems a little like a "ridiculous page 16, bottom of the page item." Sorry Hubbers, just my opinion on what evidently "sells".

Welcome to the Cynic Overlook. Sometimes, it seems, we all come for a visit.

win-winresources: Thank you for the overlook of my cynical exploration. Happy Easter (no cynicism on my part there, I know he lives and ate fish and honeycomb with his disciples after his crucifixion...all skeptics and cycnics aside.)

I hope your holiday was a spiritually satisfying one. Mine began a couple days ago.

win-winresources: Sabbath days are especially satisfying and Easter Sunday especially for me and for many. Thank you for the kind wish, may your days be filled with fulfillment, too.

Indeed, and thanks. I have always found Passover to be particularly enlightening and soul nourishing.

Interesting hub! If you want to make a lot of money online with article I think you should write a detailed article on science or business. There are lot of students and entrepreneur online in search of knowledge. I seem to get more hit off the keyword funny. I guess if you write something comical people will view your page more often.

flashmakeit: Funny may be in high demand simply because life has become too serious, even the late night shows on TV seem to thrive on sarcasm, not the truly funny humor of the George Burns and Gracey Allen variety which sprang from vaudeville and a time when the world was more circumspect than now. My funny skit drew some attention and, like all "current" Hubs, drifted into oblivion as soon as it was not easily observable. I guess good humor is like its ice cream namesake: cool for just so long.

Hi P ... thanks for this acerbic hub, us Brits love this sort of bitter humour.

Not so bothered about the 'make money writing this stuff' angle as the fact that it shows us all up as shallow and prurient. It's a sad world now that such pap sells. No wonder anyone with half a brain despises the media ... they peddle it with avaricious glee.

In the UK I used to get a publication called 'Good News' and that's what it specialised in - all the stuff the terminally unshockable wouldn't read 'cos it wasn't titillating enough.

Obviously it had a very small circulation but it was a breath of fresh air in a stinking tabloid press.

Angie Jardine: How right you are! Thanks for the good Comment. You raised another question. Why did "Good News" disappear from your reading menu?

Do you know I don't know! It was something we used to get copies of at my natural health centre.

When I was widowed I left the centre and moved to the other end of the UK and simply made a new and different life. I had forgotten all about the newspaper.

I have just now looked it up and find that it was not called 'Good News' at all ... that apparently is a Christian newspaper. The newspaper I mean is secular and it is called 'Positive News' and here is the link for you http://positivenews.org.uk

I must try and get a regular copy as an antidote to all the sensationalism and celebrity trash.

Angie Jardine: Thanks for the link! I wonder why we don't have a US equivalent featuring the positive news of the day (or week). Surely there have to be people who would pay some part of what they pay to get the troubling news. Perhaps not, but I like to believe there are. It keeps me going.
