Getting people to contribute

Over the short life of The Pet Wiki, we’ve had a couple of contributors here and there, but we haven’t had anyone (not including my mom) who have felt compelled to add content. I’m working on a new strategy. I’m going to tweet to people about specific issues that interest them. I’ve mad friends with a lot of people through Twitter, and I think that they’ll enjoy helping on the site (at least I hope they will).

The Gerbil page has recently been updated. I added a picture and a video yesterday. Today I told my gerbil friend, Dalila about it. She went in and edited it to make it better. She’s a gerbil, so I’m sure that she has a lot of knowledge about all things gerbil. What surprises me is how fast she types. She must just get exhausted run back and forth across the keyboard. 🙂
