Telling the Whole Tale on a Wikipedia Page

Writers are people who have something to say. The art of writing is the art of communications. Writing can be both entertaining and informative depending upon the approach one chooses to take. For those who have a lot of knowledge about a particular subject, the written word can both inform and entertain. Wikipedia, the highly popular online encyclopedia provides a perfect venue for those who wish to write about a particular subject. Hopefully, all those with solid writing skills will create an account on the Wiki community and share what they know. If not, then no one else will be able to share in the knowledge they possess.

One of the most interesting aspects about how to make a Wikipedia page is that the online community provides a forum to write factual entries about virtually any subject. Be it a person, place, thing, event, work of art, or even concept in the abstract, Wikipedia probably will allow a page to be dedicated to it. As long as the page sticks to the facts and avoids critical analysis and editorializing, whatever is written onto the page is going to be allowed.

Writers who possess knowledge about a particular topic should seriously think about adding to the existing content on the site. If no content exists, then why not create that missing page. Again, it would be a shame if a writer held knowledge about a subject from others when sharing it is so easy. Upon creating a profile, all one has to do is use MediaWiki to write text or perform revisions, additions, and edits. Anyone who can use a basic word processor should be able to get a hang of MediaWiki.

Those who are not writers, but have a vested interest in seeing vital information find its way to Wikipedia should work with a company like Get Your Wiki. Get Your Wiki provides full-service writing, editing, and monitoring work of Wikipedia on behalf of clients. All work is done at a high degree of professionalism and within the rules of Wikipedia’s guidelines.

So, if the client wants to see a Wiki page contain several paragraphs of previously omitted information but cannot do the writing on his or her own, Get Your Wiki steps in. The information is provided to Get Your Wiki and solid work is then done on the page.

The end result is a page that is as comprehensive as possible. Is that not what an encyclopedia entry should embody?
