I have some content on Triond. You can add your pictures, videos, and audio as well as articles. I think Triond is a nice addition.
Triond pays you two ways. They pay you 50 percent of the revenue your content generates. Also, after you've written a few articles, they allow you to add your own AdSense ID. It will be displayed on your content 50 percent of the time. Any clicks on those will be on your AdSense account and Google pays you directly for those clicks. I find I make more by this 2nd way, but I always earn something from both ways. It's not like it is with HubPages. With them you have to choose either their HubPages program or AdSense. With Triond, you get paid for both ways.
Triond's payout threshold is only 50 cents for U.S. writers, so it is very easy to make payout every month. Also, the money you earn from clicks on ads when your AdSense ID is showing helps you reach AdSense payout quicker.
Some people are always trashing Triond. Sometimes I get some pretty good AdSense clicks on my Triond articles that are more than what I get on HubPages. Go figure.
Also, I was thinking the other day. I have earned more from Triond than some other places like Squidoo. I've had articles on Squidoo for years and I've received nothing from them. I was browsing around there the other day and saw that I have 47 cents in my Squidoo account. LOL!!! Payout is $1. So, maybe I'll get a dollar payout from Squidoo in about another 3 years!! LOL!
The bottom line is it's all relative. I like Triond, but I would say give them a try and see for yourself.
