  BlogTalk paper: data overflow

I'm not writing because I'm analysing 82 responses to my questionnaires. I didn't expected so many, my initial analysis strategy is not applicable any more, I'm trying to find out how to deal with the data overflow, but I'm really happy that I didn't go for multiple-choice questions about motivation because a lot of interesting things emerge from the answers... Just teasing, I'll work on it tomorrow and post more :)

So, the plan is:

  • go through the aggregated answers for open questions, spot patterns, post "raw data" and initial interpretations on-line;
  • finish calculations of quantitative answers per each blogger/"would be blogger" category (I have five of them), spot any differences, post on-line;
  • go thought initial interpretations, decide about grouping and extra analysis;
  • write draft - post on-line - revise - ready.

The funny thing is that after my first looks at the data I'm not sure that I will find a difference between "bloggers" and "would be bloggers". Although I feel that several interesting things are emerging...
