I was absolutely thrilled when I submitted my first article ("Honoring All the Fathers") to Triond two months ago! To celebrate my first two months with Triond, I’ll be writing a few articles reflecting on my experiences so far. Today, I’m looking at why I actually chose Triond to start with.
When I found Triond, I was so, so excited. Over the decades, I’ve done a huge amount of technical, “hard copy” writing, but had wanted to start online writing for a long time. So for ages I’d been searching for suitable online writing sites. I could never find anything that I could get started with - all the sites I checked out somehow seemed so complicated and unfriendly.
One day, Triond jumped out on my online search. I’d never heard of it before. I gave the Triond website a quick look over. It seemed like a dream come true! All I’d ever wanted and more in an online writing site:
Quick and Easy
1. Quick and easy registration with no:
2. Quick and easy publication. Able to publish on a huge diversity of topics in a broad spectrum of different online magazines, all through one centralized, streamlined “window.”
3. A Triond Support Team.
1. Easily understood Triond guidelines for improving writing.
2. Articles, discussions and advice by experienced and gifted writers on improving writing as well as on online publishing.
3. Mechanisms for asking questions.
4. Exposure to a wide spectrum of writing styles.
5. A tremendous community of writers. Even at a glance, I could instantly pick up the caring, kindness and encouragement that Triond friends so readily share with each other.
5. A platform on which to practice, practice, practice.
1. Payment for writing and making referrals.
These are the reasons that I initially chose Triond. I have really appreciated and enjoyed reading about other writers experiences with Triond over the last couple of months.
Can you remember what attracted you to Triond in the beginning?
In the next couple of days, I hope to look at the solutions that I finally found to the technical problems I experienced when first starting trying to publish on Triond.
