Most of the people who decide to start writing for money have one question in their minds – is it really possible to earn a decent part-time or even full-time income from writing? Ironically, even though it’s the most popular question among beginner writers, it’s really hard to find an honest answer to this question. So I decided to try to answer this question. I don’t earn my living from internet writing, but I’ve been doing this for more than a year now and I know a lot of people who earn a decent income from their articles.

So first let’s talk about the payment system of Triond. Triond pays for views of your content. That means that every 5 – 10 views you get generate 0.01 $. Yeah I know this is not a big number and many people who are interested in internet writing usually lose interest because of this number. But even though you get only a penny for 5 – 10 views, the views add up rapidly when you have a lot of articles. Also you earn by Google Adsense, which is integrated into Triond. That means that relevant ads will be placed in your articles and you will earn money if people will view and hit them. Furthermore, there is a new feature in Triond, which gives you additional 5 -20% revenue if you will write 5,10 or 20 articles a month.

This is all fine, but what are the real numbers – you might ask. Well let’s take my account for example. I started writing with some terrible articles about gaming, which brought me no revenue. I actually got almost no money for the first 10 articles I wrote, because nobody read them. Now after almost a year, I have 95 articles and I earn about 10 dollars a month (about 30 – 40 cents daily). This is not a big sum, because I earn most of my money from about 10 – 20 popular articles. So as you might imagine I could earn about 4 times more, if I had 95 great articles instead of 10 – 20 great articles and 70 average ones.

40 cents daily for a year’s work pff… – you might say. And yes you’re right it’s not a huge sum of money. But the real beauty of Triond is that it’s not a get rich fast scheme, but more of an investment. You see, even if I stopped writing now I would still get my 10 bucks monthly, because people still read my articles. Now imagine if you had 1000 articles (2 – 3 years of work if you write daily) you’d get 200 – 500 dollars a month (but having in mind that your articles would get more popular overtime and you’d have more fans overtime, you’d get even more). Not a bad investment I’d say. Even better, these approximations apply only if you’re an average guy, who writes average stuff, article a day and so on. However, I know people who write a couple of articles a day. They write excellent articles and most importantly – they enjoy it. That is why they get 500 – 1000 dollars monthly or even more.

So in conclusion, Triond is more of an investment than a fast way to get money. You can’t make a fortune in a minute, a day, a month or even a year, but if you enjoy writing, work hard and improve you can get a decent revenue, or even a minimum wage from your articles. Of course, it’s a lot of work, but believe me, when you, after a couple of years of writing, will go on a holiday of your dreams from the money you earned writing, you will not regret all the hard work.

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.
