The first time I wrote on Triond, I was excited because I know that I can write anything ‘under the sun’ and get paid. I thought that within a year, I’ll be making money that will equal my effort. The more I write quality articles, the more I’ll get views.
It’s easy for your article to get accepted and published. Just ensure that you are writing quality content without plagiarizing. Just ensure that your article should be unique and informative. Of course, as I’m passionate with my craft which is writing, I also want to make money for all the efforts I’ve exerted.
I wrote several articles. Different topics and subjects of my interest, from entrepreneurship, relationships, business, faith, self- defense, arts and writing to name a few. A year has passed and I wasn’t happy with my earning. I seem I’m just daydreaming, considering all my efforts and all my time spent, my expectations regarding earning huge sums on Triond didn’t come into fruition.
I browsed reviews about writers who have spent their time, doing their writings on Triond. And I can relate with them. Perhaps they’ve also felt my disappointments and disheartenment for my wasted efforts. Somehow, Triond do have an upside. Because once you reached the minimum amount which is .50 cents, it will directly deposit on your Paypal account. But that wasn’t enough reason for me to remain writing there.
I was introduced and referred here on Experts Column by my fellow writer in Triond. And I just gave it a try. With this site, you are allowed to republish the articles (column is the preferred term here) you’ve written as long that it is originally yours and you have the same username in that site and what you are currently using. So whenever I write in Triond, I also submit it in Experts Column. As I compare it, passive income really works in Experts Column, even when you aren’t marketing it on article directories. Article marketing is just an option to leverage your earnings. But Triond do have a different story, there are straight days that there aren’t any views with my article.
Today, I stopped writing in Triond. What’s the point? Aside from your passion to write and express anything you want, everybody also wants to earn from it. And Triond has greatly disappointed me. I’m just glad now that I’m writing here on Experts Column. Because I know, As much as I’m having fun writing here, the income potential is just limited by my own effort and hardwork.
Update: After I wrote this column, I had some realization, to give Triond another shot. Please read my other related columns, click to read:
