Now you've got a whole website to fill up with information, pictures and videos about your favorite topic. But right now, it's just blank pages staring at you... Scary, right? Here are some ways to get started.
- Introduce your topic on the front page. This is your opportunity to explain to your readers what your topic is all about. Write as much as you want! Your description can link off to all the important pages on your site.
- Start some new pages -- just a sentence or two is fine to get started. Don't let the blank page stare you down! A wiki is all about adding and changing things as you go along. You can also add pictures and videos, to fill out the page and make it more interesting.
And then just keep going! People like visiting wikis when there's lots of stuff to read and look at, so keep adding stuff, and you'll attract readers and editors. There's a lot to do, but don't worry -- today's your first day, and you've got plenty of time. Every wiki starts the same way -- a little bit at a time, starting with the first few pages, until it grows into a huge, busy site.

Skud, Brinstar just happened to mention the wiki on the CMG forum...Can't believe I found out this way at my own company. Anyways, let me know what I can do to help - from a new theme, skin, content, marketing etc... -- Doug (talk) 01:55, December 8, 2009 (UTC)
Hi Skud, I wanted to add a couple of upcoming events that community leaders/managers may be interested in. Where/how do you recommend is best to do that here? I see there are event descriptions, as well as an event category. It seems with the categories that folks have created a new page for each event. Is this what you think is best, so should there be just a page with a list of events? Thanks! --Sarah (talk 00:45, December 16, 2009 (UTC)
