Why?
Reading about deals that happened over the last 10 years won't be a huge hit. If you made it a story book about people who caught the last flight out before x happened in order to make their sons bar mitzvah thanks to dan and friends help...maybe but again unlikely...

Things are constantly changing. You need something like a book, but on the internet. I'm gonna try to think of something that might fit that description. Where you can write your thoughts, and post updates as time goes on

Which one of his descriptions doesn't fit into the definition of "blog"?

I think it's a great idea. There are
so many fantastic stories. You've got adventures, tragedies, comedies, world travels...

Why not?
Work is what you do between vacations.

A book with the trip reports alone would be worth it

Or you could just check Dansdeals.com and click on the trip notes tab

really? you could?

The book's purpose would be for people that arent involved in Dans Deals.

E.G. Grandparents who dont know how to use the internet (not saying mine don't) but would enjoy a cool read like that.
