Many Hubpages writers may know of the writing site Triond which came into being in 2006. Triond has some really nice-looking badges to mark various milestones that writers on that site reach. There are badges for the number of articles written, the number of views garnered, the number of referrals you have as well as special badges. Let us now look at the various badges to be had on Triond.

Views from articles on Triond are sometimes called impressions. The various milestones for are: 100, 200, 500, 1000, 2000, 5000, 10,000, 20,000, 50,000, 100,000, 200,000, 500,000, 1,000,000, 2,000,000, 5,000,000, 10,000,000.
When you refer people to Triond and they join using your referral link you get badges to mark certain milestones. When you have 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50, 200, 500 or 1000 referrals you get badges to indicate that.
Sometimes Triond may have a special promotion and there is a special badge when you fulfill the conditions that they lay down. Unlike other Triond badges, these special badges may not necessarily be gotten after the month passes. There is often a bonus amount of money to be gotten in that month as well.
So far the special badges have been for such things as writing a certain amount of articles within a given month (the most common type of bonus month challenge), articles being viewed for a certain length of time and also for flagging the inappropriate articles of other Triond writers in an effort to rid the site of unwanted material etc.
Would you believe that on Triond some writers have achieved the badge for one million and two million views? Some have hundreds of referrals. Others have all the special badges which are much easier to get. All in all no one can doubt that those are beautiful badges.
