Writing in Wikipedia

Recently I started writing in Wikipedia, either by inserting small pieces of information with supporting citations  to a page or by expanding a stub in Wikipedia.  For those who are interested in learning  about phrases that are peculiar to a skill or area of learning: a stub is one of those pages with a subject with a little bit of information to which information of historical or geographical importance may be added or to which citations may be needed.

To discover that information or information which may be used in the page requires patience to search, devise concepts or phrases which may be applicable to online searches,  read and re read, understand, rephrase and then apply more understanding while writing and editing. So far, most of the updating which I have done applies to places in Trinidad and Tobago, such as:
  • St. James, Trinidad and Tobago (excuse the repetition, however there is a need to be as precise as possible to reduce the results of the search)
  • Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago/Belmont,Trinidad and Tobago
  • Paramin, Trinidad and Tobago
  • Chaguaramas,Trinidad and Tobago 
  • Cedros, Trinidad and Tobago and 
  • Icacos, Trinidad and Tobago
  • Laventille, Trinidad and Tobago  
I was also lucky enough to provide some information on Venezuela, our neighboring country.

Over the next few posts, I will attempt to provide some of the updates and citations which were provided on Wikipedia and links to the relevant pages in Wikipedia. While all of the information may not be provided in  the posts in the blog and there may be some similarity in the content of the information, I hope that the information may be enlightening overall.
