Editing on Wikipedia is Good Training

Wikipedia should be nicer to its editors. For editing on Wikipedia trains people to write good copy for their own websites. John H. Gohde got great on the job training both with developing web layouts with CSS as well as with writing good text layout on his own sites during his time on Wikipedia.

John recently wrote on Wikify Your Website on one of his sister websites about search engine optimization.

The Trolls of Wikipedia should have been nicer to this author, since if Mr. Gohde is not writing on Wikipedia then there are plenty of other places where his training at Wikipedia has paid off. His assigned writing assignments at Wikipedia about writing two, two hundred word essays were absolutely nothing. Heck, John writes about ten times as much copy as that, every week of the year. Just read more on the Trolls of Wikipedia, if your Wikipedian trolls don’t believe him. This tiny post about being trained by Wikipedia, to better destroy Wikipedia in his own blog is only 216 words long. But, most of his musings about Wikipedia are a whole lot bigger.

Those who can write, write on their own websites while those who cannot write; bit-twiddle, correct grammar, and otherwise Troll on Wikipedia.

Just his opinion, but the Man is always right. 🙂
