My name is Aleksandra and I am an administrator on Wikitravel. I am happy to help this community grow and make Wikitravel a better tourist guide. Don't hesitate to ask me any question, I will do my best to help.
Originally I am from Poland but I used to live in France, Austria, Liechtenstein and right now in United States where I did my Master Studies in International Business. My home campus was San Francisco but I had a chance to participate in a Rotation Program and do part of my studies in Boston and Dubai which was an unforgettable experience for me. Right now I'm living in Los Angeles area. Traveling is one of my biggest passions and I would love to see as many new places as possible!
I am looking forward to working on Wikitravel with you. Please feel free to contact me on my English Talk Page.
In reference to your text, I would like to ask that if a particular travel blog has got authentic information on a particular place to travel why can't we place a link to that blog. External links are used for that purpose only. No one has got that much time to write paragraphs here on Wiki travel. As because we are passionate travelers, we don't want any communication gap or lack of information on Wiki travel article pages so we come here and write a few lines to make the articles read for travelers. All details can not be put here all the time so we link to the pages which have got good information on this particular topic.
Please let me know if placing this kind of link is beyond guidelines. As far as my knowledge goes I know that any informative page can be linked from here if that is not a business page and if this activity is not promotional. In such a case no external links should be allowed to place on any page on Wiki travel.
I have explored some offbeat destinations and I would surely cover that on my Blog with all required and helpful information. I don't find any harm placing a link to my page.
Now if this is not okay, then I will surely not link back to my blog pages. Looking forward to your feedback.
