Story update #4: Data collection feedback

Category : Blog Reflections

A screenshot of a Google form survey about weight-cutting in combat sports

The Google form survey I created asks participants questions regarding weight-cutting rules in MMA promotions as well as personal questions about diet and hydration.

Over the past week I’ve been continuing to collect data on weight-cutting based on a Google form survey I submitted to Reddit.

The MMA community on Reddit was a big help in participating in the survey and as of today, I have 303 responses which is more than I expected. The comments left on the thread I created on Reddit are going to be incorporated in my infographic that I will create.

Unfortunately I didn’t add any story elements to my story package but this month I am going to return to Alliance Training Center where I will interview some staff and fighters about the challenges to weight-cutting and how it effects their training camp.

Stay tuned in the coming weeks for a story update as well as a preview of my infographic!

This is a great response to your informal survey Chris. The open-ended comments can be insightful and might help you to identify new points to bring up in your story and for new interviews. Get to it!
