    What are the most often asked questions at Homesteading Today? I can think of three:

    1. How do I find land?
    2. What kinda chainsaw should I buy?
    3. What is the name of your homestead?

    So, what are the other questions that are asked over and over and over?

    Why is the government (state, county, feds) doing this to me?
    Why do people who don't deserve it have more than I do?
    Why am I so miserable?
    What can I do about uncooperative neighbors?

    There also seems to be an overabundance of posts about snakes...I'm not really sure why.

    Then there is the whole recipe thing...how do you make your....??

    It's seasonal too -- things like:

    How's your garden?
    What are you planting?
    New seed catalog!!!
    Ordering seed....

    Then, of course, every homesteaders biggest concern...the weather.

    How to generate income in a rural area seems to be quite popular. One thread you'll not likely see is "what do I do with all this extra money?"!

    cheers,
