Getting your new article to appear on the Main Page of Wikipedia as a "Did you know" entry is a great first goal, as soon as you move out of a sandbox. To be eligible, an article must:
- conform to Wikipedia's core policies regarding verifiability, neutral point of view, and copyright;
- have been created (or expanded five-fold) within the last five days;
- be about 3 or 4 paragraphs long, at the least;
- be supported with citations to reliable sources.
