In the Old Days, I liked to work DXpeditions. And that was enough.
But these days I get just as much pleasure (well, almost) from reading about them as they progress through their operation. DXpeditions have assembled descriptive websites for as long as the internet has been around but lately more and more of them are moving to “blog format” websites.
The main behind-the-scenes advantage of this format is the ease with which new pages (posts) are added. Updates can be posted quickly without the need to create a whole new page. Only the content need be added; no need to be concerned with html, CSS issues, etc. That’s all taken care of automatically by the blog’s “theme” or template.
As DXpeditions come and go, I will be adding (and eventually removing) them to/from the links to your right.
TX5K and T2GM are currently there and provide some interesting reading.
Hopefully this trend will continue as it offers a better way for us at home to read about the “Good, Bad & Ugly” of how DXpeditions progress and provides the human element that’s missing from the quickie “5NN TU” exchange.
