Admit it. Most of us joined Triond lured by the prospect of making money. Here we found a site, where we could blog and earn at the same time. However, once on the Triond ship, we realized that the dollars were slow to come. It didn’t faze us, and we continued our trip, and got plenty in return.
We learnt to network and make friends. We also understood that if we made friends, we could share our ideas and work. We click you, you click us, the relationship symbiotic and happy.
We clicked on our friend’s links and opened our thoughts to a new world of information. I would have never gone looking for information on reality shows, but when I read something written by a friend, I was surely impressed.
As we tried ways and means to attract traffic, we learnt to experiment with ideas. Engaging topics, attractive headlines, photos et al, we tried our hand at all the ideas available. While some of them worked, some taught us important lessons.
Yes, though it’s low, politics is a prevalent part of Triond too. Some will delete you as their friend, if you don’t click on their posts. Some will hate you if you disagree with them. Some will pester you with too much mail and too many links. More serious writers, will just ignore the banter and simply write.
A virtual community
Triond is a virtual family. You make friends, read, love, hate, attract criticism and at times get surprises. Its all part of a lovely parcel. But for the weaker hearted, Triond may not be the place. For those who cant face criticism on their work, the community can at times get nasty. For those who go poli-ticking, all may not work well. But for all those who love to just write, the platform, literally said, is just right.
