Say hi and let them know I sent you :D

I take you through some ideas for research from Jstor to Google Scholar, to a plain old Google search, as well as how I turn that into a script (hint:not all at once).

Your 'Weak Female Characters' brought me here. This #YouTubeGirls made me a sub. I've been researching how to make YouTube vids, and this vid is a welcome gift. Thank you.

Should we give the source of research material like journals, articles, and news on our video? thanks

Awesome to get such insight into your process, thanks Rowan! This was really helpful as I've literally just started properly scripting a video for the first time. The most I ever did before was note down some vague things I wanted to cover and then just ad lib it, and even that wasn't all the time. I'll definitely be adopting your habit of noting all of my initial thoughts down before researching and expanding. The colour-coding of lines you're happy with is a great idea too!

This was actually very helpful for my personal investigation for history, thank you very much! My school doesn't have any books about my chosen topic, the Haitian Revolution, (i got some from other libraries though) so these resources will be very useful!

This was such an interesting video! You put such a lot of work into your videos and it really does show.

It's worth noting that you can get a free jstor account, you can then save 3 articles a fortnight to a "shelf" and read them online. Not as wonderful as when I had uni access, but it's still really useful :)
