About

Prove It! Research is the companion blog to my latest book, Prove It: Fact-Finding Secrets of a Fanatical Online Researcher (available on Amazon).

I’ve spent the past 20 years as an independent writer and online researcher, and have seen first-hand how the internet has become an increasingly information-packed, helpful and yet ever-more confusing resource for fact-checking. While there’s more data online than ever before, there’s also a lot more astroturfing, fakery, quackery, trolling and flaming, all of which can make it hard to know what to — and not to — believe.

I wrote my book in hopes of helping others to sift the internet wheat from the chaff. I believe that’s vitally important … not only because there’s a whole lot more “chaff” than ever before, but because it really can hurt us when we’re wrong about what we know and don’t know to be true.
