The purpose of this paper is to report on our research team’s experiences leading up to the successful collection of data for an online survey—which is part of our Family Internet research project. We have chosen to give an account of the processes that led us to employ the research procedures and strategies that we ultimately adopted in the hope that relating these experiences to others may be beneficial in saving other researchers from the same degree of uncertainty we experienced. It also involves us engaging in desirable standards of transparency.
