About Note-taking ...
"... note-taking requires effort. Rather than passively taking information in, the act of encoding the information into words or pictures forms new pathways in the brain, which stores it more firmly in long-term memory. On top of that, having the information stored in a new place gives students the opportunity to revisit it later and reinforce the learning that happened the first time around." taken from Note-taking: A Research Roundup https://www.cultofpedagogy.com/note-taking/
Writing a BLOG is kind of note-taking as well, you store the information/ideas/opinions in a new place and can revisit it anytime later. When you create an eBook out of it in PDF format, you can even search across several hundred pages easily 😉👍. If you do not like writing, you might be artistically inclined or are just looking for an alternative approach to enter a new interesting world, Drawing could be the way to go? Doodles and sketches instead of letters, why not?
