I know what I hate and I'm sure that you do too but what about Triond? Now I know that this is a rival site to Expertscolumn but there is no comparison between the two. Expertscolumn wins hands down and no I'm not an employee, just an honest subscriber to the site.
I recently submitted a few articles to the Triond site, after signing up, and then waited for my submissions to be reviewed before publishing. Slightly different process on Expertscolumn where your articles are published immediately with the proviso that they have to pass quality and plagiarism controls, fail that and they are deleted.
But what I hate about the Triond process is that you wait ages before anything happens and when something did happen, in my case, it was to tell me that my articles weren't up to the standards required. What rubbish! I've posted over 30 articles on Expertscolumn to date and have received favourable comments from other writers and a consistent daily page view average. I also pride myself on original content, human interest, humour, spelling and grammar.
Some of the content on Triond is extremely sub standard with innumerable spelling and grammatical errors. I have posted several messages to the administrative team at Triond, if there is one, asking for their reasons for declining my submissions, I wanted to know what their criteria for acceptance was. Have I had an answer, well not so far anyway but I'll keep you posted on that. Indeed their whole communication process is confusing and convoluted. I wasn't sure if my question/complaint was being directed to a Triond website administrator or to a secondary site called 'get safisfaction'. Either way no responses from either sites.
Not a good way to welcome a new member don't you agree?
When I have contacted Expertscolumn for info their response times were very good and reasonably quick bearing in mind the different time zones involved.
Maybe I will get my answers from Triond soon and if I do I will update this post forthwith with their reasons for declining my articles. If they want to be a successful business they would do well to protect genuine non plagiaristic writers, like myself, with a modicum of literacy and talent who enjoy the opportunity to share their writing with a wider audience.
At the moment Expertscolumn remains my favourite and preferred site for this type of work.
Anyone else had any disappointments with the Triond website and if so please comment in the box below this article? Thanks for reading this, I'm slightly miffed and a little hurt.
