When starting to work on the blog entry due to the week of 20th december, I already had some ideas in mind: Initially, I thought of either keep on researching on marketing of bubble tea or, in accordance with the actual christmas season, searching for some nice baking recipes, or presenting some ethic issues to “feed our soul” (as our blog -not without good reason- is called “soul food”).
However, as I wanted to be up-to-date and get some more inspiration and alternatives for my next article, I followed my professor’s advice to type in our general topic “food” into google, searching for “blogs” of the “last 24 hours”.
Here’s a “quick and dirty” outline briefly explaining my process of preparing for the next blog entry, based on the method “ON THE TRANSPARENCY OF SEARCH, SOURCE AND ARGUMENT”:
- First, I typed “food” on google, set “blogs” of “last 24 hours”
- headline: Remember The Food and Meals You Love With Evernote immediately caught my eye, opened the link on my browser
- opened a new link and another link on new taps to get more information
- copied relevant links into evernote and took notes
- Then, I saw another headline which also rose my interest: Food Industry Trends: Food Business Trends
- I opened the link http://smallbiztrends.com/2011/12/10-food-trends-2012.html in a new browser, read through the coming food trends presented
- especially liked the idea of the potato-, juice-, healthy eatings- and appetizer-business
- opened a new browser for each of the business ideas, searched for more relevant information
- widened/ narrowed my research accordingly, took notes, saved everything on Evernote
- As I still can’t stop letting off the initial intention of referring to the current christmas season, I opened a new browser, searched for “christmas mentality” of last 7 days’ blogs on google.
- when typing christmas into search bar, suggestion “christmas mental health” was given by google which I eventually took over
- saw headlines: CHRISTMAS ISN’T ALWAYS COMFORTABLE, Have A Healthy Merry Christmas and The Dark Side Of Christmas, opened pages on new taps
- copied links into Evernote, took notes of main statements
Voilà, there I got a bunch of different ideas and great research results and now, I am perfectly equipped for the next articles. Stay tuned for my upcoming blog posts! 😉
