Science is amazing. But, not all of us can be scientists and read research notes every single day to keep up with all the amazing discoveries in the various fields. Science can overwhelm everyone, from scientists to regular people who want to catch up on what’s going on in the world. Well, talking about regular people who are interested in science and don’t have the time to follow various research, what can they do to keep up with the news? Read magazines? Yes, but those are a bit too specific. What about blogs? Science blogs are the solution for those in need of a bit of daily science intake. Here are the top blogs to follow.

The name itself shows a lot of determination and passion about science, but their posts also keep you informed on various matters scientific, modern and past. It is good to remember scientists gone, especially the less famous ones.
We all love to read blogs, especially ones which combine different ideas to form a story. The story and personal aspect is what makes a blog interesting.

Don’t be scared by the long part of the articles, because once they pull you in, you will cherish the time spent and the information gathered.

Science is amazing and learning science from blogs can be every bit as entertaining as learning it from a book or a video. Blogs can have more information, though, especially interesting facts you never knew you cared for.
