*Apologies for duplicate and cross posting, failed to change subject line. *
To introduce myself again: My name is Kristina Krause and I am a masters student in social anthropology at the University of Canterbury in Kent conducting a study on client-web designer relationships in the nonprofit sector. I am currently seeking web designers and nonprofits who utilize Wordpress.org and who would be willing to be interviewed.

The goal of this project is to better understand the ways in which technology can become more sustainable for nonprofit clients by examining how nonprofits interact both with web designers and website technology, or in this case: Wordpress.  
As part of my research I would like to conduct two interviews with participating web designers and nonprofits. The first interview being very open-ended and involving a general discussion of the web design process and the second more structured with questions evolving from the first. 
I would be incredibly grateful if participants could provide me with 1 hour of their time on two separate occasions to conduct these interviews. If you are based in England, relatively near Canterbury or London, I would love to meet you in person. If you are located elsewhere, a phone interview would be fantastic. 
Also, I prefer to film or record the interviews, dependent on the interview location and to take one photograph of the interviewee to attach to the transcript. If there is discomfort with any (or all) of these methods, please do let me know. Interviewees of course have complete control over all resulting information, and I can use a pseudonym if preferred. 
Finally, I would like to offer nonprofits in exchange to answer any website related questions or to complete any minor updates if your organization is in need. 
For web designers, I hope that my research will be a helpful resource for you and an opportunity to reflect on your own workflow!
Thank you for taking the time to read my request, and any further questions are welcome!

I have also posted my research proposal (in progress) http://www.appliedanthrodesign.com/research/ if interested.
Thank you again,
