Enriching and mind-stimulating articles are hard to find nowadays. And what’s appalling in all of these is that most of these good sites are often obscure in the last pages of search engines.
Well, it doesn’t come as a surprise because Google doesn’t necessarily rank base on the quality of the content but on how you optimize SEO.
Therefore, people who are more tech-savvy would benefit from this type of setting.
But anyway, I found a few good websites that you can try and regularly visit for a worthwhile and enriching daily reading.
For this session of fun and facts of the day, let’s briefly talk about the internet publication Fact and Arts and discuss some of the contents.
What are Facts and Arts?
Facts and Arts is an online publication that offers high-quality content. In addition, these articles are distributed by prominent authors from different fields like professors, writers, political analyst, etc.
With this being said—you can expect a wide variety of topics that includes anywhere from politics, science, movie reviews, current news, arts, etc.
The good news is that it is completely to use!
But the authors of the contents have the right to charge fees in case they desire to do so. In this case, the editor shall take a cut from the income as well.
Nevertheless, they are an excellent online publication to find current events and anything new about sciences and arts.
In this next section, let’s see some of their recent publications…
