Home Guidelines Drafts Social media

Welcome to the Meta home page of the Wikimedia Blog. Run by the Wikimedia Foundation, the blog publishes announcements from the organization and news from around the Wikimedia movement. We are looking for intriguing post ideas from community members that will interest our readership, which is primarily from outside the movement. Ideally, your idea will bring a unique and unusual perspective to initiatives and happenings on Wikimedia projects from around the world, with an emphasis on high impact and public interest.

Drafting a post[edit]



Thank you for proposing a draft for the Wikimedia Blog. If you haven't already done so, please send an email to the Wikimedia Foundation's Communications team at blogteam@wikimedia.org. Doing so allows us to make sure that our readership will find your post appealing and informative before we have to turn down a post that you have spent a significant amount of time on! For more information on this and items from translations to writing style, please see our guidelines.

We can always improve the English translation, but it is helpful to have it as a starting point.
