Thing 10 – Edit a wiki

“Sandbox” is the term that wikis often use to describe the area of the website that should be used for pure play. For this discovery and exploration exercise, we’ve set up a whole wiki* that’s for nothing but play!

For this Thing, you are asked to add an entry or two to the 23 Things @ Chisholm wiki. The theme of this wiki is simply “Favourites”. Favourite books, favourite holiday spots, favourite restaurants, favourite anything! All you need to do is play and add your thoughts. To mark your adventure on this site, you should add your blog to the Favourite Blogs page.


Your Task

  1. Access the 23 Things @ Chisholm wiki using the url that was emailed to you.
  2. Add your blog to the Favourite Blogs page. Optional: Add a favourite or two to a few other pages (Favourite books, favourite vacation spot, etc). And, if you feel up to the challenge, you might even want to create a separate page for a book review or short travel essay and link up to that.
  3. Create a post in your blog about the experience. (You can combine this post with one from Thing 9 on library wikis if you like.)

* Note: The 23 Things @ Chisholm wiki was created using the free version of Wetpaint, a tool that lets you create webpages that anyone can edit.
