vladith asked: How did the whole "Becoming a Cracked writer" process work?
It is actually a fairly simple process. Go here: http://www.cracked.com/write-for-cracked/ sign up for the forums, and for the Cracked Writers Workshop. Read around a bit, familiarize yourself with what they’re looking for, and then pitch articles that fit what they want. They provide feedback, and once you have a pitch that looks likely, and they accept it, you write it, they pay you, and BAM! You join the envied group known as Cracked Writers.
