I am Trina Sonnenberg.
Anywho... My husband Jeff and I live in a place few have ever
heard of - A sleepy little town, out in the middle of nowhere,
named Nucla, in the beautiful state of Colorado.
Nucla is nestled in the foothills of the San Juan Mountains, in
the southwestern part of the state. We are 110 miles south of
Grand Junction, 100 miles west of Montrose and 109 miles north of
Cortez. And, that is how far we have to travel to shop at
WalMart, or drive by a McDonalds.
Nucla has about 700 residents. A sign outside the town limits
says, "...1000 people, and 1 grouch." There are no traffic lights
here, and the only time you'll experience a traffic jam is when a
rancher is moving his cattle.
The climate here is the best! We are at an altitude of 5862 feet.
The climate is that of a high mountain desert, so our summers get
a little hot, but our winters are mild. (All the snow stays above
7000 feet.) Believe it or not, the hot summers are tolerable
because there is no humidity here.
If you happen to be out hiking in the hills, among the cedar and
pinion pine, you can find animal tracks such as: cougar, black
bear, elk, mule deer, bobcat, coyote, lynx, and even rattle
snake. You can also find, if you're paying attention, dinosaur
bones and ancient Indian artifacts.
Jeff and I are Wisconsin transplants; high school sweethearts
that spent 17 years apart. Jeff came to Nucla in 1989, while I
was busy being married to someone else, and having my first
In 1996, Jeff came back to Wisconsin, I was divorced many years
at the time, and Jerimiah and I packed up our lives and moved
west with Jeff. We have been living here since 1997.
Jeff and I celebrated our 10th anniversary on Dec. 1st, 2006.
In 2002, my mother moved out here, from Wisconsin, to live with
I began my Internet experience in 1998. I bought a computer and
taught myself how to use it. I built my first web site in 2000,
and started publication of my ezine, the Trii-Zine Ezine ISSN#
1555-2276, in 2001. The Trii-Zine left email publication in 2003,
when I moved to RSS for a publishing medium. In 2004, I built the
Internet's first syndicated advertising company, AdsOnQ, again,
I am a founding publisher at Quikonnex.com, and I am also a

I am a Preferred Customer with Melaleuca.
That's about it.
Trina L.C. Sonnenberg
Trina L.C. Sonnenberg, Internet marketer, author and publisher has just released a new book. This book is not in her typical genre of marketing and home business information, but it is a step in the opposite direction. 'My Journey' is a compilation of verse, written over the last 27 years, accompanied by breath-taking photos of southwestern Colorado.
A domestic abuse survivor, Trina used writing as a coping mechanism during her years of abuse. This book is the result of that personal struggle and has been published as a way of offering solidarity and hope to others who are in a similar situation.
Her new book, 'My Journey' is available as a download in PDF format, or in a print version. This is the first book she has authored to be available in both formats.
Past books authored by Trina Sonnenberg (Schiller) are available in ebook format. They include:
Your Beginner's Guide to Syndication
RSS, Blogs and Syndication The Facts vs The Guruese
The DeskView User's Guide
Trina has been writing and publishing online since 2001, with the first issue of the Trii-Zine Ezine (ISSN# 1555-2276) in September of that year. In 2004 she launched the Internet's first syndicated advertising company, AdsOnQ, to expand on her use of RSS technology.
