A Dollar A Day in Triond! Wouldn't it be nice?

Every now and then, I earn a dollar in a day in Triond. Each time feels like the first time, too. Below is a screenshot of one of my lucky, happy days!

There is a sense of thrill to freelance writers with no professional experience like me, to actually make good money in writing online. And a dollar a day is good money, I tell you! If done everyday, wouldn't that mean 30 dollars online?

Earning a dollar a day every day is actually one of my goals in Triond. I keep on searching and try new SEO techniques in order to get more of the organic views. This kind of view is the one coming from search engines like,,, bing,, (You get the picture right?) That's why I got excited to see some of these sites in my top referring sites. I shared that in one of my earlier posts here, actually. However fun and rewarding, I know that I still need to improve my daily methods of operation in Triond in order to increase those views. So... I tried the advise I read from oneone of the articles of a Triond member. 

Want to increase your Triond earnings, too? Try this...

1. Make the title of your articles catchy. For example, I changed my "Getting Rid of Stretch Marks" article to "How to Get Rid of Stretch Marks Fast!" and my Negative Calories in the Foods our Diets, I changed to "For Faster Weight Loss: Add Negative Calorie Foods in Your Diets".

2. I added 3 backlinks at the end of my each of my articles. Those article links should be related to that particular article they are reading, of course.This way, my readers have easier options to check what are the other articles I have. When they click it.. it's ca$hing! ca$hing! for me and new learning for my readers. hihihihi..

Let me give you an example. For my Fruit Ninja article, I added these few lines.
"You liked this? You may also be interested in these articles below:
-Health Benefits of Running Exercises
-Healthy Ways of Losing Weight
-Negative Calorie Foods in our Diets"

Easy right?

If you're writing for Triond, or perhaps in any other writing site, try these few tricks. Then, let's hope it gets you additional views. ;)

Returning Comments to Triond Responders

I can't believe it took me several hours to return all the comments I received in my articles. Well...scratch that! I CAN believe it. I hadn't return the comments of my fellow writers in a long time (several weeks, actually); that's why it took me a while to finish.

Why do I return comments? Simply because I feel it's the right thing to do. Whether if it's a simple "Good job." or "Excellent work on this."; I'm sure the Triond writers would appreciate their comments to my articles be returned to theirs. It is just fair, I suppose.

It's not a question of how to get views really, (although, it helps sometimes). I just feel that I need to return the good things given to me by the Triond community. I know how it takes time and effort to write a comment on one's article. It is just proper to give back and return the favor. Writing online for money is more fun when fellow writers help each other in getting views, getting noticed in the web and ultimately getting online income.

While it took me more than 4 hours (half of the daily working time in an office work lol); it feels gratifying later on to know that all the comments I received are properly returned to their rightful writers. We make money by writing and most of the time, make new friends, as well. That is how it should be, I think.

And that is another reason why I feel writing for Triond is fun. Its community is very active, unlike some of the writing sites I know. I enjoy communicating with my fellow writers, even if it's just a simple hi or hello; or in this case, "Nice work" or "Great post!".

Do you do the same? Why not try returning the favors you receive from the Triond community. See how it will better your reputation as a writer; see how it will affect your views and earnings; and see how it helps give exposure to your written articles. Wink! Wink!

Article Writing - Done! What's next?!?

Earlier this month, I set a goal for myself to write at least 20 Triond articles for November. Thank goodness, I was able to make it.

Freelance writers like me, who are not employed to write and with no specific company to write for, need to make goals in writing for money. Writing for Triond has become one of my well-paid hobbies online; and I'd like to be better at it each and every time. That is the very reason why I set this goal in the first place. And I am just happy to see it through.

This month, I've set to put writing online first; and promoting them later. Now that I have reached my 20-mark goal, I can proceed in seeking way on how to get views. Writing for Triond is just as easy (or as hard - how ever, you would like to perceive it) as getting Triond views. I believe that long-time writers can make good money in Triond by promoting 80% of the time and writing only 20%. However, for a new writer, it should be the other way around - that's 80% writing; while promoting 20% of the time. That is just my theory, though. Prove me right or prove me wrong.

Anyway, speaking of getting the links out there, I am promoting my Triond links to Stumbleupon as I write this article. It's rather easy once you have a system. I know that I need to learn more of the SEO techniques to get organic views. But for now, I am enjoying the views from social sites like Stumbleupon, Facebook and Twitter. I do get a few views from and They are overwhelming for someone like me; but I need to know how to increase them. There has got to be a way. Any tips, guys? :)

Moving on.. my next step is to gather traffic and views. I still have half the month to figure out how to increase my money in Triond. I'm thinking of using Digg and Perhaps I can make good money from these sites, too. I will definitely let you know.

Thank you Triond for my October Payment

Thank you Triond for my October payment.

I can say once more that... I make money writing! hahahah!

I'm happy with my 15 bucks online income. I used to get 50 cents from this site so this is rather a big payday for me. More so, I got about the same amount last month when Triond gave me a 30% bonus for writing at least 20 articles. This October, I wrote was able to publish just 3, and here I get about the same cash money! Yay me!

Last October, I focused on how to get Triond views rather than writing for Triond. Writing online for money requires online promotion and marketing as well. That's where SEO techniques come in. I mostly use social media like Facebook, Twitter and Stumbleupon in promoting my Triond links. I need to broaden my SEO knowledge in order to make good money in Triond, though. I am very happy with how things are going with me in this site. Still, I am looking for way to improve my stats. I'm always looking for ways to better myself and my online income.

This month of November, I'm thinking of writing for Expertscolumn, as well. I plan to leave Triond backlinks in my Expertscolumn article.  I like to make money by writing; but I don't like copy-pasting my works from one site to another. (Although that is totally allowed with EC.) Anyway, I plan to write a 300-word article for my Triond articles (also with a minimum of 300 words) in order to multiply my readership and views and online money through writing.

I use beingwell in EC, too in case your wondering. hahaha! If you are ever there, feel free to read some of my articles. You know I'll earn a few cents whenever you view my works.

So there! Once more, all my thanks for Triond. More power to yah!

My Goal is to make 20 Triond Articles this November

This month, I am not going to worry on how to get Triond views. October was all about promoting Triond links. I focused on ways on how to get views. This month however, I plan to add at least 20 Triond articles on my portfolio. This month's all about writing!

Increasing views and traffic involve good contents to be promoted online. Freelance writers need to balance writing for money and promoting to get more money. And that's my simple plan this November - write good contents.

I finally got my 100 Badge. I plan to get the next badge, which is 200. Here's a screenshot of the e-mail Triond sent me when I reached a hundred. It was a fun day for me.hihihi...

And so, I have a new feat at hand! Instead of going for that next hundred in one go; I plan to make it as fun and as doable as possible (which should always be the case). One thing I learned in making money online is that is should always be fun first! Otherwise, we all lose interest, especially when the pay starts with a few cents. So what if Triond didn't announce any challenge this month. I am challenging myself, for whatever it's worth. hahaha!

If you plan to make good money in Triond, I suggest you do the same. Balance writing (good articles) and promoting them. It doesn't have to be drastic, my friends. Just remember to keep it simple and reachable so that it be will fun for you and your readers. You'll see how far it will take you. My favorite motto in life is to do this slowly and yet surely. It applies to all sort of things; and yes even on the different ways to make money online.

That's it for now. You can cheer me anytime. hehehe...

How Cool are my Top Referring Sites! :P

How cool indeed! I have Facebook, StumbleUpon, Yahoo!, Google, Bing and Redgage in my Top Referring Sites for the last 30 days. It seems I'm getting better in increasing views and traffic with Triond. I don't know how long it will hold, of course. That's why I'm happy this is happening.

Earning online income by writing is fun for me. I get to use SEO techniques that I only read from other blogs and articles. I also learn some techniques of my own through online social groups that I'm a member of. I know that I still have a lot to learn; but what I've learned in my online earning searches, I can share with you guys today.

First thing's first though. If you're new to Triond, how to get views should not be your number 1 concern. First, you need to make articles. It's like what my tag above says, Write. Promote. Make money. Haha! Now, write at least 5-10 articles in a month. If you don't write, you don't have anything to promote. How can you make money from there? And don't tell me you're good in getting referrals? That should be the farthest from your worries at this point.

As incentives, Triond usually gives challenges to writers wherein they get additional 10%, 20% or 30% bonus when they reach a certain number of articles for a particular month. But.... it seems that we don't have it for this month. Let's wait for December, in this case. Now when you've got a good number of articles it's time to promote.

How to get Triond views from the sites I've mentioned above? The first thing you would need is an audience. Where to get those? For starters, in Triond, of course! I will never get tired of this advise. Work the community you are in, whether its Triond or any other writing or social site. The members are most probably willing to help. 90% of the time, when you help other members, they help themselves as well in getting traffic. So, knock-knock-knock on your neighbors' doors.

Just remember: DO NOT SPAM! Never do this or you'll get a bad rep among the community. No one likes that.

Do this for 2-4 weeks and be amazed with how your views and earnings would go up!
