Where is your online home?
I guess most of us are familiar with the Wizard of Oz. My favorite scene is when Dorothy (Judy Garland) clicks the heels of her red shoes together and repeats several times, There’s no place like home.

When it comes to the web, I feel the same way about my blog. I feel the same way about Triond. What makes an online home for a blogger or a content provider? Well, I guess it’s the same things that makes for a real home. One definition for a real home is: home is where they have to take you in. I don’t think that will work for most websites.
I like my blog and Triond because they are where I put all my online content. I feel comfortable having all my online content at these two sites.
For me, blogging and working on a pay-for-content site like Triond, is a continuation of a life long commitment to words on paper. Of course, working online and wanting to make some money makes me very aware of key words as marketing tools to catch the attention of search engines.
But I was a committed wordsmith long before I could send an e-mail.
No, I think we are all looking for a place online that will let us be ourselves, to pursue our need to put our thoughts into words. That’s the sort of website many of us are looking for. So, we blog and we look for websites like Triond.
This article is a tribute to those sites that let us be ourselves.
