Sharing the love
David suggested that I write a short post introducing myself as the new second author of this blog, so here it is. My name's Marc Vincent, I'm 23, British and have just completed a degree in Journalism, of all things. Naturally, I'm also quite in love with a certain clade of archosaurs, and it's that that's drawn me here. Hopefully I'll be able to churn out posts on at least a semi-regular basis (lack of work ethic not withstanding), and always enjoy reading your comments. Except when it's Matt Martyniuk being right, yet again. Stop embarrassing me, Matt Martyniuk.*
I've got a post in the works based on material gathered during the writing of my undergraduate thesis, which was essentially an analysis of palaeo-related coverage in mainstream UK newspapers - including a few words from Dave Hone and Mark Witton on the subject. I've also got another Vintage Dinosaur Art post lined up for Monday, and at least a few more ideas for the future! I'll still be writing for the Dinosaur Toy Blog, too, about all the daft plastic things that I'm steadily accumulating a worryingly large collection of.
Greetings, then, and it's a real honour to have been asked to contribute to Love in the Time of Chasmosaurs. Hopefully we'll all have a lot of fun.
*I'm joking, obviously. Lova ya Matt.
