Documenting your findings and checking off completion

An essential part of the research process is to document your findings. This way, you can always refer back to your research documentation to analyse your findings further.

You also need to track your progress by checking off completed sections in the blog checklist template.

1. Create a Google Document for your research

Open your research folder in Google Drive. Create a Google doc within this folder, in which to save files to your search results and other relevant research. Remember to have your folders organised as we learned in this lesson.
