I just recently started submitting articles on Triond. For me, the hardest part is coming up with topics to write about. Where do you get inspiration on topics to write about?

For me, yes, at times I do have things I cannot write about. But then I take a step back, close my eyes for a while.. then look at the things surrounding me... If I get any inspiration from them, I'll write about it.. If not, I'll start thinking of my childhood and like the funny things that happened last time or recently, just to share some experience.. But I rarely write for triond, I'm more of a sharedreviews and associated content person. I would also suggest look around all these discussions.. You'll sure to find something you're able to talk about and get inspired with. :)

I am new to writing for Triond, but both of my submissions were published. One was a story about my sister and I reuniting, the other post was a poem that I wrote. I use things that happen in my life alot of the time for motivation. There is always something happening in life that makes a person want to vent. I choose to vent on paper, it's a great release for me.

Usually I will write based on my own true experience. I will blend it together with facts which I collect mostly from the internet. But never copy and paste any sentences because this is an immoral thing to do. What I did is just collect information and then write a fresh article about something. This is in fact a lot more easier than ammending and correcting other's articles. Actually this is the first time I have heard about Triond. Does it really pay you? And how much? Can you really earn a living here? If yes, I would be very glad to join. I really enjoy writing and until now I am still searching for a site which can pay for the writings I make. Thank you very much for starting this conversation.

I can't even imagine not having ideas for writing. I get ideas everywhere and keep a list of topics so that I always have something to write about. I always have at least thrity or forty topics waiting for me to get around to them. The news, climate, people -- there are ideas everywhere. I suggest you look through Triond and see what people are writing about. There's so much there that you could be inspired.

I no longer write for Triond, in fact I deleted my account there as I just wasn't doing much with it...but I still have my Associated Content account and usually and regularly write for them. I get a lot of inspiration from news items I hear...like the dangers of BFA plastics in baby bottles that I heard sometime ago...or about revealing the truth of the fur industry and on and on. Strangely, I'm not a big news fan or watcher, I just kind of keep my ears open halfway, then when I hear something I like to write about, bingo, got my subject
