I'm a fledgling Wikipedian, so please feel free to give me suggestions or tell me what I'm doing wrong!

Like most Wikipedians, my contributions are generally closely related to my background and hobbies. Although I now live in Iowa, I was born in Amarillo, Texas and studied anthropology at Texas Tech University in Lubbock. It was also there that I met and married my husband and was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. My interests, ranging from the usual to the bizzare, include: playing Dungeons and Dragons (paper and Neverwinter Nights persistent worlds), geocaching, hiking in the snow, attachment parenting, history, computer building and maintenance, obliterating each and every rogue apostrophe, and blowing bubbles for my three year-old son.

My role in Wikipedia is a simple one for now, but I hope to do more as I become more acquainted with the process and community. I add geographic coordinates to locations as part of the WikiProject Geographical coordinates. I have lots of free time, so I'm open to additional projects.

This is my cheat sheet. I'll break it out into its own page when it gets too cluttered.
