    Just understand that we learned what we "know" by simply giving some time for it. You can write about anything you know or don' know but for those "don't know"s, you will have to give some time to learn. That's it.

    While you are learning something new, don't try to refer some sites which are nothing more than some "fluff" simply to make the gap filled, rather go for some trusted sources. Encyclopedia will give a basic understanding of everything. University sites will also do the same..

    Good Luck!

    Writing on any subject is possible, provided that the writer has a sufficient grasp of the matter at hand. Clearly, existing experience will enable a swift submission, but any matter needs research if the content is to be meaningful. Having completed a professional degree, and undertaken ongoing further and higher education, I find that I am able to turn my hand to most subjects, especially if there is an element of something interesting to me in them.

    I think it is possible to write an article on a subject you are unfamiliar with. How credible that article turns out is another matter entirely...

    What about PLR? Even if you are not familiar with the topic but you owned a PLR. How do you guys edit or write?

    Well, if you look at the BST part of the forum, you will see that there are indeed quite a lot of people who write about subjects they're not familiar with. Quality is another matter.

    And if you want to go to the top, being a specialist is the way to go.

    Yes you can write about subjects you're not familiar with as long as you have the interest and research skills necessary to be able write authoritatively about it. I recently had a client ask me to write an article on a specific business practice I had never heard of. I did a few hours of research and was able to write a high quality article the client was very happy with. :)

    I remember one project I worked on where I was paid several hundred dollars to write a quick how to guide on making stained glass ... this is a topic I know nothing about. The client new this, but liked my writing style enough that they did not care. Some people say you will make more money as a writer by specializing. In my experience you make more money by refining your skills and just be a damn good writer.

    You can write about things you don't know but can find out. If you still don't know anything about the topic after writing the article, however, then your articles are probably worthless.
