A couple new geology-related blogs

February 13, 2008

As always … at least they are “new” to me.

I found a great, fairly new blog called The Dynamic Earth. And the best part is that so far it looks to be a sedimentary-rich blog. Sounds good to me. He’s got a sweet photo of some hummocky cross-stratification for the header image (Cretaceous of Utah?). Check it out.

Have you seen the blog for Earth Learning Idea? They are posting an Earth-related activity every week for the The International Year of Planet Earth (IYPE). They are designed to be cheap and relatively easy to set up.

I really enjoy watching my Geoscience Blogs list on the sidebar grow.

UPDATE: Also check out Ten Million Years of Solitude … so new there’s only two posts (as of 2/15/08).

UPDATE #2: One more thing … when can we get a new blog not using Blogger? You can get a blog hosted for free at WordPress.com (similar to blogspot). The software is better, in my opinion … just sayin’   :)

    Thanks for the link! Its nice to see such a community of geo-folks thriving in the jungle of the internets.

    And you nailed the provenance for the ol’ picture, too: HCS is from the Panther Tounge

    I tried to install WordPress on my webspace, but I was having all kinds of trouble with the URL not actually directing where I wanted it to, so I gave up and went with Blogger. Perhaps I should have been more patient, but I wanted to write stuff right then!

    hmm…that’s weird…Blogger is ultra-easy, i’ll give it that.

    Thanks for the shout-out. Unfortunately, I didn’t realize there were multiple blogging options available… rats.

    We should be very pleased if you could spread the word about this global educational project, set up for the IYPE. We are publishing an Earth-related activity every week during this year, in English and Spanish – – soon in Norwegian too. Although we have had considerable success so far in reaching schools across the world, we have not reached teacher-training institutions in the developing world. Can anyone help please?
