Step 6. The Celebration!
I sat down tonight with the intention of writing a letter to Wikipedia. So, realizing I had my objective, I began:
I want to begin with a simple Thank you! "
And that my friends, is as far as my letter to Wikipedia got! Now you probably already guessed it, but it took me a greeting plus a sentence to come to the realization...the answer to my question was most likely ALRAEDY ON WIKIPEDIA!!! So I searched "How does one get on Wikipedia?" As irony would have it, seconds later my answer arrived..."Notability!"
In response to my Facebook status one friend wrote: "I would say either becoming famous or infamous. In your time frame infamous may be the easier road." However, Wikipedia is not a popularity contest...It is an encyclopedia, and if you meet the general notability guidelines you are golden! (General Notability Guidelines)
So, what is my plan to become notable enough to warrant my own Wikipedia article? Yet to be determined...but i am happy to continue the journey with this information:-)
To be continued...
make it a good day and practice safe sex! sending love, suchie
ps...Got a notability idea for me?
