Toolkit 10: Using blog analysis
Helene Snee, University of Manchester, July 2010
This toolkit draws on experiences of a study in which blog analysis was used alongside interviews to explore young people’s representations of their gap year experiences. The toolkit outlines the methods I employed in the project and suggests the sorts of questions that can be answered using blog analysis alongside the issues that might arise.
