Good News, Most Viewed and Selling Out

Good news! So yesterday my latest Cracked article came out called 5 Ways Video Games Are Saving Mankind. I have tons of unused entries to post, mostly because my pitch was merged with someone else's since they covered the same topic.

Other news is my Literary Classics article was on Cracked's Most Viewed Articles list for the month of March. This is the 2nd time I've made the list, though I might do it again with my Fan Theory one. What does that mean for me? Mostly nothing. I get a sweet bonus and some bragging rights in my own head, but it's still cool to think I wrote something for a major website that was one of their biggest hits for a month.

Some folk may have noticed the presence of ads on my blog now. Yes, it's true, I sold out; i.e. I'm trying to find more ways of making a living off of writing. To put it into perspective, I think I've made one cent thus far off of views.

I'm living the dream.

I guess it's less "selling out" and more "I really want to find a way to be a full-time writer and if I can do something that will add even a few bucks to my revenue stream I will." I'm pretty sure I'm not supposed to talk about the individual ads or whatever (the freaking TOS reads like the rules of Fight Club). But I'll try to find ones that are fairly relevant to the content I post and not utterly dumb.

Anyways, hope you're all having a great weekend!


  1. Good article! Any idea whether or not you're ever coming back to WoH? Hope everything is okay, just let me know one way or the other, man.


  2. So, uh, are you still alive? I came here from the Cracked article (the one about video games) looking for the debris on the cutting room floor.
