I know, I know, I haven’t been as prompt with my blog postings this week. Here’s the deal – a paper of mine, based on my dissertation work, was accepted for presentation at the Qualitative Report Conference next year. The acceptance got me excited and when I get excited, I become a little OCD. So I had the marvelous idea (I should have had that marvelous idea last year) to start compiling my raw data in neat little folders on my desktop in order to start analysis in a few weeks. Turns out that I have over 1,000 pages of transcribed conversations. And of all things, I didn’t think I had enough data!!!!!! Any ideas on how to organize this mess?
