I'm a paid editor[edit]

My name is Johanna Janhonen and I have been editing in the Finnish Wikipedia more regularly since summer 2010 when I visited Wikimania in Gdansk. I have my own company and via it I have updated the content for my customers, mostly in Finnish Wikipedia but more and more in English and other languages too.

As asked on [1] here's a list of my web pages and social media accounts where I post (or may post) about the work I do in Wikimedia, both in Finnish and English:

My edits 31 Dec 2020

NB: Although I mainly edit based on orders on June 2018 I did some voluntary edits just for fun and learning.

...a Wikipedia trainer...[edit]

So as I said I have a company of my own, I'm a solopreneur. I am social media trainer and every once in a while I also run Wikipedia workshops.

...and part of Wikimedia movement[edit]

Wikinem October 2018 03

I was part of the board of Wikimedia Finland's chapter in 2014-2016 and I am still active in Wikimedia Finland. In September 2018 I was in Stockholm where the Wikimedia organizations of Northern Europe met for the first time to start the collaboration. Read more about our meeting.

In 2019 I was volunteering for several months at Wikimania 2019 held in Stockholm as a Communication Experts Coordinator. I "hired" the volunteers in our social media team, made a content plan and communicated it to the team. The funniest part of the work was to maintain the Instagram account of the event as it gave me the possibility to engage directly with the Wikimedia community.

Thanks for your fastidious attention to the COI policies and your excellent contributions which are, unfortunately, a rarity among paid editors. Chetsford (talk) 07:23, 19 June 2018 (UTC)

My edits[edit]

Customer articles before 2014:

All edits

Customer articles after 2015: Explanations: * = customer, ** = article edited for customer


Deleted pages:

  • Kristina_Vramencalieva (just a little fine-tuning for the draft article)
  • Charlie Jabaley - there were several sources mentioning his Grammy award, including CNN so I was thinking he was notable.
  • You May Now Kill the Bride - this tv movie came a long while I was editing Taura Stinson's article and I decided to create a stub for it. It wasn't enough.
