A Struggling Writer? Try Triond

I have been with Triond since September 2007. Triond is a site that pays you to write original articles. They pay according to the number of page views your article gets. The pay is miserably low ( I am talking about my articles, you can earn a lot if you are talented:), but they are very punctual in their payments. Every 15th of the month I get whatever pennies I earned the previous month. You can upload original photos too and you will get paid if somebody do look at those pictures.
I had long forgotten about Triond, didn't even care to check paypal whether they are paying, because I know they are. But I had stopped writing for them. Simply because I thought if I have to write an original article and get pennies for it, then better write it on my blogs so that I get rich, original content here, and eventually a good page rank.
But I was so wrong in not writing on Triond. Today, out of the blue I remembered about Troind, and logged into my account. I checked the money earned. It never crossed four dollars any month for those fourteen articles and photos that I have there. But I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that one of my articles had a total earning of $10.49! It got me thinking. This article is written on an unusual topic, Skeleton Leaves,it has a niche audience, the people interested in crafts. There is very little information on it. That's why those who searched information regarding skeleton leaves, they landed on my article. ( I later used this article for my crafts blog and get a lot of visitors there too).
When I look for writing jobs in different forums or job boards, I feel disappointed and disheartened. The clients are willing to pay $0.5 for a 500 hundred words original article! I can't sell myself so cheap.
If you are going to write and give away 500 words article to get $0.50 ,its better to write on Triond. You will earn money from your articles throughout your life or as long as the site is around.
I am off to write some interesting stuff and getting it published once again at Triond.

I've been part of Triond for a while now and I sort of forgot about them. I'll have to give them another go now that I'm more into my writing again.

Nice blog by the way. :)
