I do recommend reading a bit about the topic before undertaking an internet search. What I don’t like to be told is that reading about your topic is optional.
If you make an internet search, you are basically getting a list of websites that provide information about your topic. It may not be a great list, but it might be a start. You can also use Google to find sites that provide information on your topic (you can find out more about this at the Google link below).
While the internet is great for finding info on anything, I am also a firm believer that you should read the information you find. Because if you read everything, you might find that the information is pretty useless.
This isn’t a bad idea. Having someone to read information for you will help you understand what you need to do to be successful. It also might give you a good starting point for future questions you want to ask. Like, say you go to your favorite pizza place, and there are a bunch of people there from other places.
Sure, you can search the web for information about your topic in the comfort of your own home, but what if you’re out on the street and your topic is the subject of conversation? I like the idea of using an app like TripAdvisor to help you find places to eat and things to do. This is certainly a good idea, but only if you have a car to take you around and someone to drive you to the best places.
I’m always amazed that people from different parts of the world get together on the internet and discuss different things. I know that it goes for the “cringe” as well, but I think that the fact that people from different parts of the world can discuss ideas that are just as important as ours might be a good thing.
It’s not only our ideas that are important. It’s also our relationships, our family, our friends, and our communities. If you haven’t done that in your life, you haven’t lived.
The Internet is a great source of information, but it’s also a great source of false information. The problem is that many of the most important things we learn about ourselves come from other people. Even if you are trying to learn something new, there are plenty of people out there who will tell you exactly what you need to know… and then make your life a living hell. To be clear, I am not saying that you should never trust information or be careful with it.
If you’re going to attempt to seek out information about a topic that you know nothing about, you must be prepared to make yourself a subject. Otherwise, when you try to search for information on a topic you already know a great deal about, you’re going to end up finding lots and lots of false information. To illustrate, I know that I am not a professional writer.
I don’t think that everyone who does internet research is a professional writer. That said, when you do internet research, you should find things with the same level of care that you would for your own writing. Your task is to not only be sure that the information you are finding is accurate, but also to make sure that it is actually helpful. It should be an easy process.
