GeoJames is an online blogging platform that was born from a summer of boredom and a love of sharing geographical-related information. The aim is to create content that highlights the changing world we live in today.
I decided to set up this blog in the summer of 2012 as a way to share my thoughts and opinions on Earth related topics – hence the prefix Geo, taken from the greek word γη or γαια meaning “earth”. Ever the perfectionist, the blog went through many design iterations before I was satisfied with the final product. In 2014, the current iteration of the site geojames.co.uk was launched.
I aim to blog fortnightly, but this is dependent on my academic studies and amount of free time I have. Short, weekly blog posts are written on my MyUniversityLife sub-blog which documents my ongoing life as a postgraduate at the University of Reading. I tend cover subjects which I find the most interesting and most relevant to my university course. Additionally, I collate the days Earth-related stories and publish them on social media – offering my comments and reactions to the articles on Twitter.
In 2014 I started a masters course in Applied Meteorology at the University of Reading, UK. It followed on from my three year degree programme studying Geography and Geology at the University of Southampton, UK. Outside of blogging I am a keen sports fan, photographer and traveler.
I hope you enjoy reading and interacting as much as I do writing this blog. If you should wish to get in contact with me, visit the ‘Contact GeoJames’ tab at the top of the page.
