The first step in writing the first Wikipedia article is to ensure that you register an account for which you only need to come up with a username and a password. Alternatively, if you do not want to register an account, you can decide to submit your work as an unregistered user to be reviewed and published by others at the articles for creation project. It is vital to note that before you start to write, go through Wikipedia first and search whether the article you want to write already exists. If it already exists, then you can always make constructive changes to improve it. Ensure that you find reliable sources that are stable and of high quality.
In most cases, editing Wikipedia pages is a simple task. There are two methods of editing that are used by Wikipedia: Visual Editor (VE) and wiki markup (wikitext). When using the Wiki markup style of editing, you click on the edit tab that is at the top of the Wikipedia page. The Edit tab automatically leads you to a new page that contains the editable contents of the page. In most cases, wiki markup is used for tables, footnotes; hyperlinks, etc. Visual editor is more user-friendly and can only be used by registered users through a choice that is available through personal references

There are different types of citations: a full citation is one that recognizes a reliable source and where possible a place in the source where the information can be found. Am inline citation is any citation that is added adjacent to the material it is supporting. A general reference is a type of citation that although supports the content, it’s not linked to any piece of the article through an inline citation. This type of citation is in most cases found in a list in the reference section at the end of the article. It is paramount to note that citations are not recommended in the lead section of an article and should never be used on disambiguation pages.
