Hi there!

Welcome to my Triond Adventures blog. This site is all about my tips, tricks and guides on how to make money in Triond. Feel free to share your own methods of earning in Triond, as well. I'd be happy to learn from you, too.

I started writing in October 2010. I didn't know what I was doing when I signed up with Triond. All I know is that online writers in this site get paid for sharing what they know and what they feel to the world.

I struggled with writing and the earning at first. We all do. Slowly though, I began to learn some techniques on how to really work in Triond. You'll see my accomplishments posted in this site.

I hope this blogsite inspires aspiring online writers in and outside the Triond community.

See my works in the Beingwell tab on my homepage.

Enjoy the site!

Triond Sends Payment on February 2012

Hi everyone!

It's been a while since I posted in this blog. I've been busy working on my cooking and weight loss blogs. Visit me there some time. I figured it's time to post a new share in my Triond blog since it's the 10th of the month once more. You know what that means to Triond writers... payday!!

Indeed! I received my Triond money today, as expected. Thank you Triond for my $5.65. Mind you that most of this lot came from my works months and months ago. The traffic from google and yahoo are low but I am thankful that I'm receiving organic traffic from them.

Enough of that... here's my payment proof!
My Triond money! Thank you Triond!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Triond. While others are fleeing to other writing sites, I think Triond is still a good place to work. They may pay low, but the truth is - they pay. Especially if you have more than 50 articles published in Triond, I don't think it's wise to just leave your articles unattended. Sure, you can always write with other sites. Heck! I'm writing with Infobarrel, Hubpages and Shvoong. There is no shame in that. Still, I take time to promote my Triond articles whenever I get the chance. Linking your Triond articles from the new ones you published in whatever site you wish would only add more Triond income to your paypal account.

All I'm saying is this. Leave Triond if you must. But don't forget to bring all your Triond articles with you. You've already planted the seeds. Why not enjoy its fruits. Learn to backlink your articles my friends. It really pays to do this little extra effort!

All the best in your writing endeavors!

Triond Sends Payment on January 2012

Thank you Triond for sending in my online earning yesterday, January 12. Better late than never, indeed! This is an update of my blog post regarding Triond delaying on their payments due to paypal issues.

Top Ways to earn money internet

I am very happy to see my online money from Triond. This is one of those times that writing online for money is just fun, fun fun! I had a good feeling that I am really going to receive my Triond earnings sooner than the February cut-off. Thank goodness my gut-feel proved to be correct again. Thank you Triond! :)

In connection with this mild bump, I am to confess that I wrote 2 health articles with Expertscolumn.  I know I said that Triond pays better than Expertscolumn in terms of health and gaming articles. I am certain that if I am to write any health articles, it will be with you Triond. However, you would understand why I published my health articles with Expertscolumn, right? :) On my end, it’s really cool to have an alternative writing site. Hihihi… To you my readers, if you’d like to check out my Expertscolumn articles, you can see them all here.

Expertscolumn’s dashboard is not as friendly as Triond’s. That’s why I created a site to publish all the links of my Expertscolumn articles. Cool right? If you’re an Expertscolumn writer, you can do this as well. It’s free anyway.

Anyway, now that Triond is back on track, I will be writing online articles for this site again. I wonder what I will write about next. For now, I am happy with my $7.60 for the month of December since I really didn't work for it last month. I hope to multiply this amount to 3 or 4 times for my February online earnings.

What about you? How good did you do last month? :)

Triond Postpones Payment

This January, Triond postpones payment for the first time. (It's the first time for me at least.) Triond announces that the delay in payment is due to the suspension of their Paypal account, etc., etc. According to their apology letter, checks and Western Union payments were released as scheduled, at least.

I have nothing against Triond, my friends. In fact, I am glad they informed us of this incident so that I avoid scratching my head wondering when my Triond money is coming in. I hope Triond and Paypal sort things out so that I can finally enjoy my online earnings from Triond. On the brighter side, my Triond earnings are rolled up until I receive payment (or until February cut-off, I guess.) That’s a bigger sum for the next payment day.
Triond, dude, don’t worry. You're still good in my book. I am not quite happy with the delay but it's not like me to hold a grudge. I'm happy writing contents for you and promoting them on various sites. When I receive my paypal money, I shall be happier!  ;)

The good news is that I have received money from Expertscolumn. It's this site that I'm working on, in addition to Triond. I even made a bare comparison on Triond and Expertscolumn rates. While it seems that Expertscolumn pay more than Triond, it's not a 100% true. Triond rates are better in few sites like Healthmad and Gameolosophy. As to poetry and cooking articles, Expertscolumn is where they should be. With regards to communities, Triond members are more active than Expertscolumn. However, Expertscolumn tend to get more organic clicks.

I’m thankful that Expertscolumn is there fill up the temporary gap from Triond. Hopefully, Triond fixes their administrative issues with Paypal so writers like me will continue enjoying a worry-free experience with Triond.

How about you? Any qualms you have in mind for Triond? :P

Happy New Year Triond Writers and Readers

This is my first blog post for 2012. I've been away for 3 long weeks and it feels great to be back. Happy New Year to everyone! I wish you more and more success in your online earning careers and endeavors!

I spend most of my holidays with my family back home with minimal internet connection. During my vacation, I decided not to worry about my online earnings during that time so that I may truly enjoy my rest. That's why I am considering my January money (earned in December) as my true passive income.

This January, I am expecting $7.60 from Triond. Not bad! I say, it's a great way to start my year. Plus I just requested payout from Expertscolumn. Another $5 for me, Yay!

Anyway, it's a new year once more. A new beginning. The perfect time (as always) to start a habit or a resolution. With that, this is my proclamation - This year, my goal for my online earnings is to reach a $100 a day. I am sure it will not be easy for me to reach this target. However, I am certain to do my very best to succeed. ;)

Earning a dollar a day is already a feat. What more for a daily $100! A $100 a day is a lot... a lot of hard work, a lot of planning, a lot of execution and a lot of money when everything comes into place. However, I will focus on the rewards of my work so everything would feel effortless on my part.

Triond of course, is definitely a part of this online earning goal. I am going to use several other earning and social bookmarking sites like Experstcolumn, Squidoo and Bukisa to make my goal a reality this year. Hopefully, I can realize this target so that I may also share with you all how I did it!

And you, my friends? What is your target for this year?

Triond and Expertscolumn Rates Compared

If you and I are friends in Facebook, you'll know that I have been writing for Expertscolumn lately. If you're also following my Triond blog, you would know that I am looking for ways in earning a dollar a day in Triond. That's a consistent dollar a day. Not a dollar to day, and 70cents today, and 60cents the next day. And if you are already earning a dollar a day in Triond, I would be much obliged if you share with me your tricks. ;)

Anyway, Triond and Expertscolumn are the 2 sites I am working on at the moment. I am earning 10-20cents daily with Expertscolumn with my 20 articles (and growing). On the other hand, I have 119 articles in Triond which gives me 60-80cents daily. (For this month however, I am expecting as low as 30cents a day in Triond since I have not been promoting my links as I usually do. As opposed to the other online marketers, December is my lazy month. I'm going for a vacation soon and I don't want to bring the hype of getting Triond views while I am away.) 

I've only started writing for Expertcolumn last November so I don't have a strong baseline of comparison between Triond and Expertscolumn. However, I have my raw data from all my Triond articles and I have Expertscolumn' published rates. Let's start from there.

Expertscolumn says that it gives $1.50 for every 1000 views or .0015cents per view. No Google adsense necessarily. No clicked ads considered.

On Triond's corner, the rates given varies from site to site where our articles are published. I am often publishing articles on Healthmad, one of its high-paying sites. You can also choose to publish with Scienceray, Socyberty and Gameolosophy. I searches among my articles with 1000 views at least in order to complete my comparison between Triond and Expertscolumn.

Here's what I found.

Health Benefits of Eating Eggs earns .0018c per click or $1.32 for 702 clicks and a promising $1.869 for 1000 clicks...
Health Benefits of Eating Watermelons earns .0016 per click or $1.86 for 1,161 clicks and counting...
Health Benefits of Eating Bananas earns .00179 per click or $1.84 for its 1027 clicks and counting...

It's honestly surprising for me to know that Healthmad articles alone have earn higher rates than Expertscolumn articles which is .0015cents. I also checked the rates of Gameolosophy, Quazen and Socyberty since I have a few in those sites. It turns out that Gameolosophy articles earn us about .0017cents per view; Quazen, .0007cents and Socyberty, .0010cents.

Given these rates, I will choose to write health and gaming articles with Triond and the rest with Expertscolumn. I hope this simple analysis helps you decide which site to write for, as well.

Writing online for money? So am I!

Do you enjoy writing online for money? Me, yes especially now that I just received December's payment from Triond. If you're still wondering whether the site is paying or otherwise, here's a proof to you that Triond pays.

I've been writing for Triond since October 2010. I'm writing online for me and I am enjoying it. However, it is not always fun and joy. Increasing views and traffic for my Triond articles are both fun and frustrating, actually. Sometimes the pay is great; sometime it is not. It's typical for someone writing online for money, I guess.

See, I received my first payment in Triond after more than 2 months after my first ever article. 2 long and boring months. That is frustrating! I didn't know what I was doing online. I didn't know what writing online for money means. All I knew was that there is money online. There is money in writing.  I thought that Triond may be one of my gateways to do just that. And indeed it is. Triond helped me make money online.

Writing online for money is not as hard nor as easy as what others would say. It really depends on one's passion, one's skill and one's time. I learned that writing online for money takes more than just the writing skill; though it starts there. Writing online for money is a learning process where one needs to learn several SEO techniques here and there in order to get article links noticed by search engines, by forums, by other writing sites. Writing online for money is a hobby (or a career) that needs a audience. The bigger the audience, the bigger the money.

Writing online for money will help me earn $100, $300, $500 and even thousands in a month. One day, you'll see. ;) This is how I would like to rake money from the internet, writing.

Right now, Triond and Expertscolumn are the 2 sites that help my writing online for money dream a reality. $13.74 today, $1374.00 tomorrow; perhaps and even $13,740.00 in the future. Yeap, that's the dream!

Now, we like writing online for money as well? How is it, so far?
