In getting ready to launch this journal site I’ve been surfing around to find similar sites. Although I have found some neat blogs created by web expert types, I’ve found very little on qualitative research. I was hoping to find the equivalent of one of those anonymous-policemen type blogs which expose the raw underbelly of the job but there is surprisingly little. There may be a little more that I simply can’t unearth, but at first glance it feels that there are genuinely few people writing about this. The people I have found, I mostly know already.
This may be down to fear of compromising commercial confidentiality or it might simply be that commercial qual researchers are too damned busy to write about their lives.
