Are there other sites like this?

Yes, indeed! While Funny Times has its unique flavor of humor and satire, there are other platforms where your chuckles and snickers can find a home. And yes, they might just pay you for sharing your humorous tales and cartoons!

In a previous article, I explored the world of Reader’s Digest, a platform that not only appreciates a good laugh but also compensates you for it! Imagine earning up to $100 for your relatable, funny true stories through their “Life’s Like That” and “All in a Day’s Work” sections. Intriguing, right?

Reader’s Digest has its own style and categories for humor, providing a different yet equally exciting platform for writers and cartoonists to showcase their talent and earn from their creativity.

about the "author"

Felicitations, fellow malefactors!

What’s cookin’, good lookin’?

Hi there!

I’m Jared dela Cruz, founding father daddy of phmillennia & five-time winner of Witch Weekly‘s Most Charming Smile Award. I’m a wizard. I used to study at Hogwarts, but I dropped out. Actually, I was expelled. Got accused of practicing the tickling charm on Thaddeus Thurkell’s seven squib sons & running an underground market of dangerous potions. Only one of those was true.

So now I’m a writer. Or at least I think I am.

But hey, thank you for being here. For supporting my work. For supporting me. You are noble. You are kind. You are beautiful. And you – why, you are my beacon of light, love, & laughter! You make me feel … beloved. And I hope, one day, I can show you how much you mean to me. If you have money, won’t you give me some, too?
