Can I Create My Own Wikipedia Page?

Can I Create My Own Wikipedia Page

Think of a celebrity you admire. If you type this person’s name into Google and run a search, you’re sure to find a Wikipedia page about them on the first page of search results. Over the last several years, Wikipedia has evolved into a trusted source of information. It’s easy to navigate, and usually quite up-to-date.

From a person’s Wikipedia page, you can learn all sorts of information about them: their birthdate, a record of the work they’ve done, their most noteworthy accomplishments, the twists and turns of their personal life, etc.

 

Have you ever wondered what your Wikipedia page would say about you?

I think it’s safe to say that many of us have had this thought. We wonder which pictures of us would be used, which of our accomplishments would be listed, and whether or not our personal lives would sound exciting to a reader who stumbled across the article…

 

Can I Create a Wikipedia Page for Myself?

 

The question is just begging to be asked: Can you create your own Wikipedia page?

The answer is no, at least for the vast majority of us.

Wikipedia only allows individuals who are deemed “notable” (by their standards) to have Wikipedia articles written about them, and they discourage people from writing articles about themselves.

In other words, the answer to, “Can I create my own Wikipedia page?” is no. How to Create Wikipedia Page for a Person

How to Make an Obituary Online

How to Make an Obituary Online

These days, every newspaper has a website where you can access all, or at least some, of the articles that are printed in the physical copy. The obituaries section is no exception.

You can find an obituary online free on the websites of most newspapers, but did you know there’s another, richer source of free online obituaries?

When I say there’s a “richer source” of online obituaries available, I mean that there’s a website where obituaries don’t have to follow the same dry, emotionless, formulaic genre conventions of typical newspaper obituaries.

When was the last time you read an obituary in a newspaper that truly moved you?

Is your answer to that question “never?” It is for me, too!

Newspaper obituaries tend to be extremely blunt, and they never convey anything meaningful about the deceased.

There is an alternative to the traditional obituary, and that alternative is Peoplepedia.

How to Make an Obituary Online

Peoplepedia allows people to write their own, heartfelt obituaries online for free. Not only can you use Peoplepedia to find an obituary online free about someone else, you can use it to compose your own free online obituary in preparation for your inevitable departure from this world.

Peoplepedia is meant for people who want to be remembered, recognized, and known for more than just the boring, basic information that’s included in a traditional newspaper obituary.

"I Want to Be Remembered": Building a Legacy Online

I Want to Be Remembered, I Want to Be Recognized, I Want to be Known

 

Have you ever wondered how your grandparents met? Maybe you know your grandmother worked at the general store and your grandfather was a regular customer there, but do you know what their first date was like? Did they even go on dates? Do you know what qualities they found attractive in one another, or what obstacles they overcame to be together?

It’s totally natural to wonder about the lives of your family members who came before you. After all, if it hadn’t been for your grandparents, and then your own parents, you wouldn’t be with us today!

Sadly, details about the lives of our ancestors often remain unknown to us. Unless you are one of the lucky few who inherited a relative’s diary or journal, you will never have access to their story as they would have told it. Plus, pages tatter and paper yellows with age, so even a diary or journal cannot preserve one’s story forever.

With the advent of the internet, you now have the opportunity to preserve yourself – the very essence of your being – so that your loved ones, and anybody else who’s interested, can get to know the real you. Web pages don’t tatter and computer screens don’t yellow, so the key to preserving yourself for future generations is to do so digitally.
