"Essentially, participatory research is all about getting to grips with and truly understanding the lives of the people you’re studying – and taking into account their preferences, needs and wishes. I believe this leads to better quality, more impactful research because it helps us to understand the problems that really need solving. "

  1. Have you ever considered writing an ebook or guest
    authoring on other blogs? I have a blog based on the same
    information you discuss and would really like to have
    you share some stories/information. I know my subscribers would appreciate your
    work. If you’re even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e mail.

  2. Sweet blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News. Do you
    have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News?
    I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there!
    Thanks

  3. Very good blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring
    writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m
    a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so
    many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..
    Any suggestions? Kudos!
