    I submitted the pitch over a year ago and nothing ever happened with it, until about 2 months ago, they wanted to accept the pitch and team up with another guy. They've edited a lot, and I'm not convinced for the better.

    But it's just something I can point to and say, "Hey, someone thinks my words are interesting."

    Ended up in the top 25 articles for 2015! I came in at number 24, but considering they release 4 articles a day, I'm not looking too bad.

    Congratulations. I have a friend (Robin Warder) who writes for Cracked.com on a regular basis. I know it's not an easy thing to get published on there.
