When one considers that Expertscolumn is a Johnny-come-lately publishing site in a market saturated by many big name publishing sites one must conclude that Expertscolumn is doing fairly well. It is outstripping all of Triond's sites except Socyberty in terms of readership and Triond had a three year headstart! Expertscolumn is therefore a growing site the likes of which more recognized writing platforms like Triond, Hubpages, Squidoo, Xomba, Bukisa, Infobarrel etc will have to keep an eye on lest Expertscolumn overtake them though in the case of Hubpages and other Expertscolumn has a long way to go. Their growth over the last few years is indeed commendable. So start writing remembering the words of wise man Solomon who in Ecclesiastes 11:6 said:
“In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good.”
