Evelyn decided to name her blog “Georneys” (a combination of “Geology” and “Journeys”) because her study of geology takes her many places– physically, intellectually, and philosophically. In this blog Evelyn writes about her travels, past and present, to study geology, both formally and informally.
Evelyn has written this blog since 2010, with some hiatuses now and then. The blog has had various types of posts over the years. Currently, Evelyn regularly posts “The Geology Word of the Week” and shares pictures of interesting rocks and minerals that she encounters during her travels. Every December, Evelyn also writes a “What to Buy a Geologist for Christmas” post.
If you enjoy Evelyn’s blog posts, consider purchasing her book Rocks & Minerals: An Illustrated Field Guide, which is being published by Cider Mill Press (an imprint of HarperCollins) in December 2023.
Note: For one month (mid-March to mid-April 2011) this was not a geology blog but rather a blog in which Evelyn regularly interviewed her father, a nuclear engineer, about the ongoing crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan.
