I got the honor to be included in the list of top 10 medical research blogs of 2011 by HighBeam Research.
Blogs and online libraries have grown to be valuable resources for students, professors, working professionals and the general public who have not traditionally had such easy access. As an organization involved with medical research and providing medical resources, HighBeam Research would like to acknowledge our favorite medical blogs.
These top 10 blogs for medical research were handpicked by the HighBeam Research staff as our favorites and included based on their level of insightful and original content as well as the authority and trust that the authors enjoy in the Medical space.
Today my blog, Scienceroll.com, is 5 years old! I’m very happy and satisfied I didn’t stop blogging even when I had many exams, several parallel projects, hard periods in my life or even New Year’s Eve, it didn’t matter as I always kept on blogging. Once I described my 3 rules for blogging: 1) commitment, 2) openness and 3) consistency, I try to live up to all of these.
Blogging became a part of my everyday routine and now plays a major role in my professional life. I launched it in 2006 as a medical student and now I write the entries every day as a physician and researcher running Webicina.com as well. I’ve received many speaker invitations and I’ve made a lot of new contacts just because I have Scienceroll.com.
A few numbers on this long journey:
- I have been blogging for 1829 days.
- I wrote 2427 blog posts.
- Received 10,699 comments.
- WordPress has filtered 991,225 spam comments.
- Had over 2,2 million visitors.

I know there are bloggers who left blogging for microblogging or other platforms, but I still believe that my online CV and my main platform on the web is this blog and plan to keep on blogging for a long long time.
Thank you very much for reading Scienceroll.com day by day, I hope you stay with me for many more years!
Many thanks to everyone who supported Scienceroll in this year’s Medgadget’s Weblog Awards, the most prestigious medical blogger competition in the world.

The Best Medical Technologies/Informatics Weblog is once again Bertalan Meskó’s ScienceRoll. Berci, as we like to call him ever since he was one of the editors at Medgadget, is specializing in medical informatics and genetics. In the past, Berci even developed a medical school course about Health 2.0 and related topics at University of Debrecen in Hungary. ScienceRoll continues to provide timely commentary and news and reviews of everything involving computers, patients, and doctors. Congrats Berci, and keep up the good work!
Also many thanks to the Medgadget Team for organizing this wonderful competition!

2009 was a great year for me and also for Scienceroll. I graduated from medical school and started PhD in clinical genetics. The second and third semesters of my “Medicine and Web 2.0” university course were finished. I was included in the The Future Health 100 list. Scienceroll had almost 500 blog posts and 500,000 page views. But now please enjoy the last 365 days’ most popular blog entries of Scienceroll.
Happy New Year! I hope to see you again in 2010! Scienceroll will come up with some exciting material in January.
