what's the best and easiest way to compost?? I'm completely new at this and want to start doing it when I move to my next place. How do I start a compost pile? How should I enclose it (I live in a rural area with a lot of bears, raccoons, and other animals)? Etc. Basically, I just need Composting 101. It's not that I'm lazy, I just trust you guys a lot more than any website. Thanks in advance :)

I had a huge hole in my yard right outside my kitchen so I haven't yet created a bin. I've been adding my kitchen scraps along with the other necessary ingredients for compost to that hole and look forward to having some good soil for flowers eventually!
I live in the country and have a bunch of critters that wander thru my yard. (I have had many incidences with my garbage and one time I accidentally left a bag of apples on my porch which resulted in a big mess!) I haven't had a problem with the critters messing with my compost though as long as I keep the scraps covered with dirt, leaves, grass, etc.
Anyway, I've listed step by step instructions on my website (http://www.raw-food-living.com/compost.html) on what to put in the compost. And also have been doing some research on creating a bin. A good link (IMHO) for creating one is: http://www.watershedactivities.com/projects/winter/cmpstbin.html.
