Yesterday was the last post in the Following the Ice series at the Expeditions blog, in which we followed the adventures and misadventures of Ben Linhoff in Greenland, including during the most recent almost-complete melt of ice and snow there. This was also, traffic-wise, the most successful Expeditions series to date. Since Ben's posts tend to be very long, this is also yet another data-point for those of us noticing that long form writing works very well on the Web.

In case you missed the series, here are all the posts for your enjoyment:

Following the Ice: Greenland

Following the Ice: In the Beginning

Following the Ice: Glacial Dam

Ice Day: Like a nice day, but not

Following the Ice: Is this Global Warming?

Following the Ice: Is this global warming? (continued)

Following the Ice: Camp Life—Not For the Faint of Heart

Following the Ice 8: Epic Melting

Thanks, Ben!
