Wikipedia has special pages for Wikipedia writers. You can put personal information about yourself there, but you don't have to. What I found useful was to make a list of the Wikipedia pages I created and another list of Wikipedia pages I made major edits to. You can also have a list of Wikipedia pages you are currently working on.
Note: If you create a Wikipedia writer page, then when you create or edit any page, your Wikipedia ID will no longer show up in red.
To create this page, go to a Wikipedia page that you have edited and click on history. You will note that your login ID is in red, which means you do not have a page. My login is "shrodger". If you click on your login while on the history page, then you will be asked if you want to create a Wikipedia page entitled User:yourlogin. Create it by clicking on the link.
Here is some very simple items to put into this web page. You can see my user wikipedia page by searching for User:Shrodger. Then click on edit (just to see what mine looks like). You can copy it and put in your User:loginid page, and then modify it.
==Biographies I have started== *[[Mary Lou Soffa]] - an ACM Fellow *[[Carla Ellis]] - an ACM Fellow *[[Jean-Loup Baer]] - an ACM Fellow *[[Tracy Camp]] - an ACM Fellow *[[Kathryn S. McKinley]] - an ACM Fellow
I also created a section for pages I expanded, but someone else created.
==Biographies I expanded== *[[Mary Jane Irwin]] - an ACM Fellow
And at the end of the page I added a category to indicate that I am a female who writes Wikipedia pages.
