Has anyone here ever wrote for triond.com? If so do you know how the site works? How much have you been paid?

I have just started the and it looks like it could be a lot of fun, but I am so new that I haven't made any money yet... My understanding is that the amount of content, and the variety determines what you can earn... Hubpages is another option.

There re anumber of writing sites on the web. You also have ehow,Shared Reviews,Review Stream, Associated Content, Helium and others. Shared Reviews is a nice site, but there revenues have gone done so they are not paying their reviewers much anymore.Brijta is also a site to check out. They pay for abstracts of articles.

I write on there all the time. I haven't been paid much because of getting started and working on how to promote my articles properly. Once I can get that, I can hope to turn it into a strong income. It's not the only writing site I'm involved with. I'm involved with writing on Associated Content and Helium as well. I'll probably be joining a few more writing sites to add to a writing portfolio portion of my overall portfolio.

How do any of those places pay? Is it worth yoour while? I just need something that can make me some money between now and when I fisih school. Which is about August. So I have 5 weeks to basically get through making money. I am even thinking about skipping a week of school so I am able to get through it with lack of money.

Helium is doing a Summer Reward-a-thon and is adding 1,000 new topics. You have to make about $25 to reach payment and that can take time. Of course, there's also the Marketplace to see if you can make anything. Money gets sent via PayPal. Maybe if you're lucky, someone could buy one of your articles that's not a Marketplace one. Associated Content does pay for articles upfront but that's hit or miss. You have to make at least $1.50 from what I've seen in order to receive a payment. That gets sent via PayPal. At Triond, you have to make at least 50 cents to receive it via PayPal. For a check, I believe it's something around $50. I don't know if I can answer if it would be worth it to you but it's not bad and it gets you recognition if nothing else to build for the future I suppose. I hope that helps.

Yes, I publish on Triond and continue to make money on my articles, stories, poems and photos as long as people continue to look at them. Good tag words get you more views as they help your work to come up when people use those words in search engines. Getting the most views is the goal to earning more money on Triond. I have a signature in my email with a few of my articles listed so people can check them out and hopefully check out others while they are there. I get paid every month and every month my earnings go up even though I haven't submitted much lately. It's because the articles are continually being viewed. The more you contribute, obviously, the more views you will get and the more money you will make. Other sites like Helium and Associated Content may pay more but they are pickier about what they will accept. Triond sends out monthly newsletters with tips on how to be successful and gives examples of very successful articles. Give it a try. You've got nothing to lose. Good luck!
