Nothing lasts, eternal.

That's especially true for blog networks, and I've always known there would come a time to say farewell. I'm so pleased we made it nearly a decade - that's pushing a century in digital years! Alas, the Scientific American Blog Network's time is ending come Monday. The archives will live on, and you'll still be able to find plenty of science from your favorite writers elsewhere on Scientific American. Many of us will still be contributing stories.

I want to extend my utmost gratitude to the editors who decided to take a chance on a young geoblogger, and who kept me on for eight marvelous years. I've loved bringing you stories about the good science of rock-breaking, and providing some insight into the major earth science events of the past near-decade. I'm proud of the work we've all done here. Being a part of this network was a privilege and a pleasure.

Thank you, my wise and wonderful readers, for joining me in our earth science adventures. You've been incredible, and I hope you'll still be there when Rosetta Stones settles into its new home. I cherish each and every one of you. You're what makes the blogging happen!

Rosetta Stones will be moving into its own place within the next month or so. In the meantime, I'll still be blogging regularly at the Unconformity, and you'll find announcements there, so please be sure to visit! You can also catch up with me on Facebook and Twitter. And if you'd like access to exclusive content, you're more than welcome to become my patron on Patreon.

There are so many more adventures we'll have, my friends. The venue will be different, but the rocks still rock! I'll see you soon.
