I am a famous artist in my hometown, but little known elsewhere. With my travels, I try to expose my art to the world, and get inspiration for new works of art.
In addition to having a lot of experience traveling, I also have a plethora of experience editing Wikipedia.
I have visited 48 of the 50 states and 30 countries.
I have been on road trips, airplanes, trains, buses, cruises, and tours.
I have visited many famous sites around the world.
I have stayed at hotels of all classes, motels, bed and breakfasts, campgrounds, and have couch surfed.
Besides all the places I have already been to, I have a long wish list of places to go in my life.
My goals for Wikitravel
I write a lot about travel topics, info that can be helpful for travelers. There is plenty to write about in travel topics.
I am trying to get all articles categorized, using the same structure followed by Wikipedia. One thing I have discovered is that Wikitravel is poorly categorized, making it harder to find articles at all, or articles related to what one is reading about. I found that rather than having a Wikipedia-like category structure, there are just a few lists with no rhyme or reason to their order. While I am doing my best to fix this, it is not a one-person job. There are over 80,000 articles on the project, and I am hoping many other people will join me until it is complete. I am in the process of writing a policy for categorization here. At the present time, I am trying, little by little, to get all articles categorized in the following order:
I am not so much into writing about places, since most of them have been written about already. But if I see some missing info, I would add it. I have created articles on many places near where I live.
I am all over the map … literally. Just look at my contributions to see my variety of edits and the lack of order to them.
How others can help
If you are a busy person, you can make a few edits here and there when you have a few moments spare time every now and then. It is even possible to edit on most smartphones and tablets.
