So this is my goal for the year and "give something back" charge for everyone!
It involves two steps. okay, maybe three.
1) Register for an account on wikipedia and wikimedia commons, where they keep the photos.
2) Find pages in your area that need photos. They're usually in nice categories, like this:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:W ... _in_Kansas
3) Go on a photo trip!
4) Upload them to wikimedia commons. They recently changed the upload pages so it's SUPER easy now!http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:UploadWizard
5) Edit the wikipedia page, like I did on the exciting page about Neal Kansas... and just FYI, there's NOTHING in neal kansas except like ten houses, a post office, and a ton of goats. I picked the post office to best represent this exciting town.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neal,_Kansas
ta-da, you're a wikipedia contributor!
