Writers, we are inventors, creators of new topics, inventions and innovative ways of seeing the world. By simply taking a thoughtful look at past movies, books, etc. you will see how they have greatly influenced and helped shape and fashion everyday life today. In fact, I once read that writers are the creators of the future.
I believe it wholeheartedly, after all, it is undeniably true that the imagination is the impetus to creation. Without an idea, production cannot begin. Part of the reason why CEO’s and top paid executives of companies are so highly compensated and valued is due to the fact that they are “big thinkers” who can see the “big picture” and the far reaching results of their visions.
Visionary minds are the risk takers, the voice of the company or concept they represent, they make mistakes, they change courses, but they all believe in the great validity and importance of their ideas. Then, quite intelligently, they leave the details to the invaluable specialists who fill the various fields. But, social invention and progress first begins with the imagination, an ingenious idea, the spark of thinking past the concrete and known into the fascinating realm of endless possibilities.
One of my favorite and most beloved quotes is:
“If you can dream it, you can do it.”
“The only limits in life are those we place upon ourselves.”
And, lately, I’ve had the vision that WE, the gifted Triond communitycan and WILL make Triond the hottest, most popular writing site on the internet.
Why not us, after all?
Everyday the membership new sign-ups are growing. Every time you publish another article, leave a comment to support your fellow writer friends with a link to your profile you are lifting the entire site to the next level.
Within the past few months, I have done some research and was pleasantly surprised to find that many people believe Triond is one of the best online money making writing opportunities around for freelance writers. You will also be pleased to know that I have read many articles that talk very positively about our community. Most people feel that it is exceptionally supportive and I have to agree.
New and seasoned Triond writers not only consistently read your work and give supportive feedback; they often go above and beyond this kindness. I have had talented, gifted writers send beautiful emails, ask my opinion on varying subjects, further humbling, lifting me up and solidifying my belief in myself. After all, some of these writers have written songs, screenplays, and novels and for some reason, they think I have talent! Some have even gone so far as to write about me in their articles, link my work to their sites, and I’m sure much more than I will ever fully be aware of. Furthermore, the Triond community makes you feel like a special shining star and for these reasons I will never be able to express my gratitude enough.
In addition, some of the articles I have read that speak adversely about our site, actually have sited inaccurate information. I have left comments on some of these articles explaining that I have been writing for Triond for about 2 years and their negative facts are untrue. I believe the more we write positively about our site, the more we talk about all the benefits, and the more we continue to comment, Stumble, link our articles, etc. the more we can truly make this site the BEST writing site on the internet.
The more we all think of the “bigger picture” and limitless possibilities of this incredible site; that we are not in competition with one another, but in the same mission to grow Triond’s popularity the more we will drive good, positive traffic to our site and ultimately make it the most sought after, esteemed writing forum around!
I once spoke to the founder of a very popular internet site and he told me that from the very beginning stages of its existence, he was publishing articles and telling people it would be the top site within its genre. And, his words (imagination) paved the successful path to his “greater vision”. I am saying the same about Triond.
Together, we CAN and WILL make it happen!
“To the stars and beyond!”
