Yesterday I started collecting responses to my survey. Its been a whirlwind 24 hours of entering into the minds and lives of individuals I don't know, only to enter another a moment later. It's a surprisingly (or perhaps not so surprising!) addictive process -- engrossing and emotional. Of the almost 90 blogs I've reached out to, about 8 people have responded to me. I'm curious what differentiates those who decide to participate from those who don't. Sadly, I suppose there is no way of really finding out. But it hardly compares to all the things I am going to find out when I do start looking at the data.
That said, I do want to take this opportunity to thank those people who have responded so far. Please spread the word!
