When looking for places journalists could utilise their skills by contributing to websites, I stumbled across cracked.com. And the reaosn it stood out from all the others, it that it mentions PAY. Yes, PAY for your articles you write online. From what they say, I’m not sure if all articles are paid, or if there is just the chance of getting paid. But something is better than nothing! They have their own ‘write for us’ section here: http://www.cracked.com/write-for-cracked/

They’re not looking for bags of experience, but people who can write smart, witty content for online. ‘We’ll pay you if it’s good’ is what they say on the website.
