Both newbies and more seasoned writers can benefit from this guide to Triond.
Triond is an online publishing site that was created in 2006. If you are a Wikinut user or write for any other site it would do you well to join this site as well. Since sites like Wikinut and Bukisa allow you to publish content that you have already published elsewhere it is advisable to publish your articles on Triond first and then re-publish them on Wikinut etc. Triond only allows you to publish original material so that is why you have to publish there first. The following is Shelpeare’s guide to writing on Triond.
How can you get paid?
Unlike many writing sites you can get paid three different ways with Triond. For those with fully functional Paypal accounts you can get paid via Paypal when your earning reach a minimum of $0.50 US. For those living in countries where Paypal only allows you to send payments and not receive Triond allows you to get paid via Western Union or cheque. The minimum payout is much more however. You earn when readers click the ads placed by Triond on your pages.
Triond uses Google Adsense, Chitika ads etc. For more on this see: Who are Triond’s Advertisers? You can choose not to use Google Adsense if you prefer to use Chitika and other ad types. See Why Are So Many Popular Triond Writers Not Using Google Adsense?
Triond is different from other writing sites in that if you write an article on science it will be published on Triond’s other site Scienceray. If it is about society it will be published on Socyberty. For more on this see: Which Triond Partner Sites Get The Most Traffic? This can give your articles greater exposure than if all your articles were ppublished on the same site. However, fear not, on Triond you have a Contents table where and a Portfolio page where you have a listing of all your published articles and a simple click will take you to any one of them. For those more familiar with Triond here is a quiz about its’ sites.
