About Trending Views

Trending Views is a content community in which users help manage groups and submit content. We are a conglomerate of category-based groups that are created and managed by users. We allow users to write blogs, articles, and stories. We allow users to upload photographs, pictures, and videos. All users are responsible for their own content.

We are not a news provider, but many of our users write or blog about current events and the news. We remind users to focus on facts and cite their sources if they're talking about something in the news.

We have many users who like to provide commentary on current events, news, society topics, culture, entertainment, and other topics.

All views are welcome on this site. 

Trending Views has a content partner program which allows writers, video producers, and content creators/curators to earn a revenue share of our income.

Trending Views welcomes everyone to participate and write about news, politics, social issues, entertainment, business, and whatever else might interest them. Our category list is constantly updating, so check there and see what you like. Trending Views welcomes all opinions, from every perspective, and seeks to provide news articles filled with facts.

Users earn points for participating on the site by doing various activities. The points cannot be used for anything, they are just for fun to see who participates the most.

Trending Views uses a token-based system in which users can send each other tips, pay for an account upgrade to remove many of the ads, feature their content, buy ads, and even subscribe to their favorite creators for a monthly amount of their own choice. This is NOT cryptocurrency, but it's our own onsite type of thing. It basically just points.

Users who earn or receive a set amount of tokens can cash those out, with our site only taking a percentage to help cover hosting and development costs.

Ownership and Financing

I own this site, by myself without partners, and have self-funded everything since starting this site a few years ago.

I generate revenue by monetizing ads and charging a minimal fee for users to feature their content. For example, if a YouTube artist wanted their video viewed more, they could purchase a featured content spot on this site and help get more people to watch their video. So far no one has subscribed to become a premium member. This site displays very little ads.

I have paid for everything on my own. I could certainly use an investor but I don't know how to find one.

About Me

My name is Frank.

I have over 20 years experience in managing websites, advertising, and writing. I began building websites in college and have turned this into a career of successful ventures and multiple failures. You simply cannot succeed without failing on at least one thing. You can't go far without taking risks.

I graduated from Kutztown University with a BA in Professional Writing and later gathered an MA from Arcadia University.

My best offline venture was writing for the Keystone Newspaper in college. It was a little paper that no one read, but something made me irritated enough to submit an opinions piece and it was all downhill from there. The Keystone became the most-read item in Kutztown. Students awaited my writing each week and couldn't wait to trash it with their own opinion. The editor's desk was finally busy.

Writing for that newspaper caused me to lose my internship with Public Relations. I wrote about why the KU marching band should receive a noise ordinance violation for playing excessively loud music as I slept off a night of college partying. A member of KU's PR team was in the band.

I prefer writing opinions, crime, entertainment, and fun stories.

I respect everyone's point of view because nothing makes this world more interesting than all of us having a different perspective on things. It's what truly makes this world interesting on a daily basis.

Could you imagine if we were all identical? It would be weird. Plus, I wouldn't want my wife to look at me.

She's definitely better looking.
