    hello! i'm looking at this one website to get paid to write articles. it looks great and you can pick the topics to write about. gonna have my dad look it over before i join. so what should i write about? here is the topics page: http://hubpages.com/topics/
    it has a topic for farm animals and if you click on that it takes you to another page broke into individual animal topics. i'm going over my books and what i had troubles with. so what should i write about? and other topics besides goats too. ha ha!
    thanks!

    Sounds like fun :) I'm sure if you sit down and make a list of things that interest you to write about, and then figure out what others might find interesting, you can research information as you go. I'm not sure how much interest goats would draw with that website? What other animals do you know a lot about, and what would be an important topic, one that would get readers attention?

    I have a friend who is a writer and he writes for a website similar to this one. He writes about horse racing and really enjoys it.

    Good luck, have fun with it, and definitely share with us any articles you do write :)

    well it goes by topic. which are broke down into subtopics. so its like: animals-dogs, cats, exotics, livestock, birds,... and under livestock- cows, pigs, goats, chickens,... there are about 20 articles under goats. the only one on milking goats is a small article with a bunch of pics but its using a milk machine. si i can do one on hand milking.

    ~topics for articles~
    hand milking
    making a raised garden bed
    growing potatoes in hills
    growing the 3 sisters (corn, beans, squash)
    intesnive planting a garden
    companion planting
    pack goats
    harness goats
    breeding goats
    goat kidding

    anything anyone would like to read an article about? anything you might be interested in to give me an idea would be helpful. thanks!

    Maybe you could write an article on "How to Milk a Nigerian Dwarf" and include pictures? When I was learning to milk I could hardly find anything about Nigis.
