Welcome to my personal palaeontology blog Jurassic Finds. The place to be to read my views about the latest palaeontological fossil discoveries. I hope you will all enjoy reading this blog and what it has to offer. I started this blog to share the latest scientific dinosaur discoveries and inspire others to discover more about the Mesozoic era.
My name is James and I am a 25 year old Geography degree graduate. I have always been interested in dinosaurs ever since I was a child, following dinosaurs through film, media and of course palaeontology.
Working in vertebrate palaeontology has always been my dream career ever since I was a child and I am very thrilled to say that I am on the first research steps to making this career dream become a reality. I am planning on doing a Masters in the subject next year and am currently doing palaeontological research which will finish in August 2019.
To ease myself back into academic writing I figured I would give paleo journalism a go, to increase my writing skills and to gain some much need palaeontological article writing experience. I have a really good blogging background having written and co-written blogs for the Catholic charity CAFOD (The Catholic Agency for Overseas Development) from 2014-2015 and also when I did a gap year working for CAFOD in 2016-2017.
What’s to come?
Since starting Jurassic Finds back in January 2018 the blog has been very well received. The blog has seen over 4,000 readers and I have been very surprised by the positive reactions I have received from those who have read my posts so ‘Thank You’. Palaeontology has always been a subject I have been very passionate about and it has been really great as an aspiring palaeontologist for me to be able to share more about my passion for it here on Jurassic Finds.
In terms of what is to come all I would ask of you keen readers who are looking forward to this blog’s continued development is to have patience with me. My hope is that this blogs development will be able to continue to inspire young and old in learning something new, by sharing my thoughts and views about the latest scientific discoveries.
