This is– sadly– a goodbye post to Skepchick. I have blogged on and off (mostly off, sometimes) for Skepchick for the past five years. I’ve really enjoyed my time posting here, but I’ve made the very difficult decision to leave Skepchick. I will miss posting here and being part of the Skepchick community and interacting with the readers here. I will miss the Skepchick ladies, Sam, and all of you, but don’t worry– I’ll still be in the skeptical community. I’ll even be at TAM 9 in July! So, I’ll see you all around. And I’ll still post comments here now and then.
There are several reasons why I have decided to leave Skepchick. Mostly, it comes down to the fact that I just won’t have time to post the kind of quality posts that I would like to write. In the next few months I will be finishing up my thesis and moving overseas and getting married– I’m going to be extremely busy. Also, I’ve found that I very much enjoying blogging about rocks, and Skepchick isn’t quite the right venue for that sort of blogging. Back in November of 2010 I started my geology blog Georneys. Well, my little geology blog has grown in readership over the past several months. I’m thrilled to announce that Georneys has recently been invited to join a professional blogging network. I am signing the contract this week, and my new blog should go live in early July. Having Georneys move to a professional network is a huge opportunity for me, and I want to be able to devote effort to making Georneys an excellent geology blog. Unfortunately, with my thesis and personal changes, I just don’t have room for Skepchick, too.
So– goodbye, everyone!
If you like rocks, I hope you’ll continue to follow my writings at Georneys. I am not yet allowed to announce my blog move officially, but when I can I’ll put up the new link here in comments and also on my old blogspot site (georneys.blogspot.com).
All the best,
