Who doesn't like science?!?

I've been writing this series since late 2017, and these blockchain posts are essentially a "first draft" for a book I want to publish.

I'm not a "real" scientist by any means. I hold no prestigious degrees. I'm just a random guy who spends most of his time on the internet, loves learning new things and sharing that knowledge with others. I especially love science, and learning more about how the world around me works on every level.

I started out writing this series for fun, realizing that I could cash in on my love of flying off on wild tangents about space time or the way chemicals interact by putting it onto the STEEM/HIVE blockchains. It has since sparked an ambition to finally write my first book that I can publish. When I reach 50 posts, I intend to edit and rewrite them, structuring it into individual chapters that cover different fields of science. Just something fun that a casual reader can pick up for a few minutes, learn something new, and come back to later.

I'm still deciding what the topic for SCSS #29 will be. Have a suggestion? Comment below!

As a way of keeping to my roots, this is the only page where I will announce ahead of time what topics I'll put out.


If you can't tell, I've put a lot of work into this series, and I'm fairly proud of what I've created here.

I hope that by reading any random part of the series, you will walk away with some new nugget of knowledge you may never use again, but didn't have before.

I believe this whole journey could serve as a proof of concept for any aspiring author out there interested in the idea of earning anything for the time they spend writing even the idea for a book, but that's a post for another day...

Writing this series has bolstered my confidence as a writer, and given me an outlet for the desire to spend every day learning new things about the world. I hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I've enjoyed writing it.

I'll keep this list updated as new posts are written!
