The Future of Jurassic Finds

In this article I address the future of Jurassic Finds and also share some photos of my recent fossil hunting visiting Lyme Regis.

Hello everyone. It has been a long while but I am finally back. I am sorry to say that the past few months have been rather difficult for me internet wise, I haven’t been able to get a palaeontological article up in ages. I actually moved on the 29th of May and did not have internet for a month. I had internet installed at the end of June and then a week later I was cut off again for a week. Since I got internet back in mid-June I have been sorting stuff out applying for jobs and here we are.

First and foremost I want to address the future of the blog. I am planning on developing Jurassic Finds a lot more over the coming year. It was really unfortunate that when I moved I did not have internet but now that situation has been resolved I am planning on dedicating some time to the blog next week with an article. As well as this my circumstances have changed regarding the Masters I wanted to do, as I did not get on the course which was extremely disappointing. I am awaiting advice from the University as to what palaeontology/geology courses I could take for a year which could boost a future application. Whilst it is a small hiccup to my plans I am more determined than ever to pursue a career in vertebrate palaeontology.

I am therefore really looking forward to getting back into scientific writing on Jurassic Finds over the next few months to share the latest paleontological research with you all. I have a lot of paleontological research to catch up with so please do have patience with me.

To close I wanted to share some photographs of Lyme Regis with you all. I visited Lyme Regis on the 16th of July with the family and did some fossil hunting. I discovered two partially exposed large Ammonites. One Belemnite fossil, lots of small Ammonite trace imprints and this spectacular Ammonite fossil in the bottom photo. This piece of rock actually encases a further two ammonites both partially exposed.

Also I wanted to just take some time to say ‘Thank You’ to those of you who have read my articles since my last post on the 20th of May. When I logged into WordPress today I was surprised to find that Jurassic Finds had been visited by 143 people since my last post. Thank You to you all for your continued interest in my paleontological content and for keeping Jurassic Finds active over the past few months during my absence. I look forward to sharing more about the latest fossil discoveries with you all very soon!
