When it comes to writing to get paid on the internet, you have a variety of choices. If you’re a skillful writer, who has a long experience, you can try writing for various online magazines and article websites. But what if you’re not? What if you are a beginner, who wants to increase one’s writing skills or publish his poems and get some coins while doing it? Well you’re in luck, because there are dozens of websites, where you can publish your content and get paid for it.
Out of all these websites (Bukisa, Hubpages, Wikinut and etc.) I chose to review Triond firstly, due to a great experience while using it. So what is Triond? In a few words – Triond is a website that pays you to write articles, publish pictures or videos. You simply write articles or upload content and if you attract enough traffic to your content you get paid. But now let’s look deeper at the triond.com website.
Triond has a very simple, yet handy and useful website layout (it is especially easy to get used to) thus it’s a great website for beginners. Furthermore, Triond has many nice features, like graphs that show your view distribution, as well as the list of the most popular articles and subjects. One of the best features is an easy to use online editor, which let’s you upload pictures, links and videos with an ease (believe me, it’s very important, especially when you have to write a couple of articles daily).
You can write about almost everything. Triond has a variety of websites, which publish articles written by triond users. For instance if you write poems, your poems will be published on a different website than articles about science. This feature has both advantages and disadvantages. Firstly, it’s a nice feature, because your articles of various subjects get more traffic, because they’re spread more widely throughout the internet. However, not all these websites monetize your articles with the same revenue, which means that some subjects are well paid, while others are not.
Now let’s talk a little about the disadvantages of Triond. One of the main disadvantages is the online editor program, which checks submitted articles. You can submit mostly anything, which means that you can find many worthless articles. Of course, there are many great writers, who write very sophisticated articles. However, little changes to the online editor would be great. Another disadvantage is that there are no article writing contests, like in other similar websites. Forums are also not perfect, there’s a lot of spam, although I’m not sure if this is a disadvantage of the website or the community. Although Triond has a couple of disadvantages, it’s still a great website, because the Triond team is always improving it. Starting with Google AdSense integration, ending with a badge system – many important upgrades were added to Triond since I joined it (10 months ago).
Triond has a very mixed community of all ages and various interests. Yes, you can find bad articles and spammers, however, however it’s also easy to find good sophisticated writers. Most of the community is friendly and supporting for new members, however there are many comment spammers (well I guess it’s inevitable for such websites).
And last but not least, let’s look at the earning system. When you write an article or upload content, it gets posted on a website according to the writing subject. You get paid for a number of content views. Also you can use Google AdSense to get paid additionally, also for page views. But how much do you get paid? It depends on your article type. Most of articles about science, internet, book reviews and similar stuff get about 0.01$ for 5-10 views. However, this doesn’t apply to poems and pictures, which aren’t monetized so high. So now the most important question – can you make a fortune from Triond? The answer is – it depends… If you’re willing to write daily, use search engine optimization techniques to make your articles more popular and don’t care about the revenues for a first year, you can get a decent amount of money from this site.
All in all, Triond is a great website for beginners and those, who enjoy writing. It’s a great investment for writers, because it’s always great to enjoy your hobby and get paid for it.
