I love the contrast between the long conceptual road and the quick work to write the paper once the results were available. And the insight into what goes into constructing a good survey is great - I especially like the point about ensuring questions are meaningful to both the researchers AND respondents.
I am glad you liked the post! It was really nice to reflect on how the paper came about - we should do that more often. Hopefully more authors will make use of the platform to share their reflections. I look forward to reading them.
