Welcome to The Fact Site!

The Fact SiteThe Fact Site is an ever-growing knowledge base for all the world’s most random and interesting facts. We have thousands of facts about nearly anything you could think of, from the cutest animals to the most dangerous crimes, there really is something to please everyone here.

The Fact Site started back in 2009, which was known as Funky-Facts, since then, the site has grown in many ways and has very quickly become one of the top facts websites – it’s not just one of the best, but one of the most reliable. We’re continuously adding new facts & even go to the effort of updating some of our outdated facts. If you spot a mistake, or a fact that is no longer true, let us know, we’ll change it!

We are always looking for new ways to share our facts, with out latest adventure being The Fact Shop. Because of the large amount of suggestions we’ve had, we set up an online store selling our favorite facts on clothing and other merchandise. The Fact Shop started early 2016 and has received a huge interest and we’ve even had our fans send us suggestions for facts they would like to see!

We are currently expanding our online social presence via Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest & Google+. Be sure to follow us for the newest facts, our favourite lists and a whole bunch of random information.

I’m a passionate, professional blogger with over 8 years experience in WordPress, SEO, Web Design, Factual Researching and Internet Wizardry. I was born in England in 1991 & I’ve always enjoyed fascinating people with random knowledge! Oh yeah, I’m also the guy that created The Fact Site & The Fact Shop.

Back in 2009, there wasn’t a whole bunch of factual sites available, so I created The Fact Site so that nobody else will ever have a struggle on finding bizarre & interesting facts. Since the start, my knowledge of everything useless has grown a lot (probably too much) and I’ve had to keep sharing with you all! What started as a small site where I shared my knowledge, soon grew to the point where I wanted others to share theirs.

In early 2012, I found some talented writers who had different areas of expertise & asked them to join The Fact Site team. My aim was to give a range of facts in all areas – not just topics that interest me.

In 2014, I landed a SEO/PPC Executive job for an online video games retailer, where I continued to learn about all aspects of SEO, as well as eCommerce and Pay Per Click advertising. This gave me the extra motivation & knowledge needed to improve The Fact Site even further.

In 2015, a re-brand happened in preparation my newest adventure – The Fact Shop. With months of development (whilst holding a full time job), The Fact Shop was launched in February 2016.

If you would like to know more, I’m quite active online, so feel free to add me on what ever social networks you prefer! I’m also available for interviews at any time, please get in touch over at the Contact Page & we can arrange a suitable time for us.

I’m a BA English Studies graduate from Hull University. As a close friend of The Fact Site’s founder, I have always been a long-time fan of his useless information and in late 2012, Luke asked me to write for The Fact Site.

I’m an avid gamer & love a good TV Show; I really enjoy the brutal heartbreak offered to me by series like The Walking Dead. I also practice the circus-toy diabolo; sad to say, this isn’t my day-job however. I work as a full-time Administrator for waste-management giant, leaving me not as much time as I would like to write for all you lovely readers.

I hope you enjoy my work here and please don’t hesitate to contact me if you like.

With a head full of useless information, and a site like this to share it, I feel just at home! For me, it all started back in 2006 where for a short period of time, I was the owner of a growing forum. Since then, I have spent a lot of my time writing for various blogs online, mostly internet and computing related.

I’ve been here from almost the start of The Fact Site, and have enjoyed both writing articles, and the behind-the-scenes programming. As this blog continues to grow, so does my lust for random information.

In my spare time I love to study the religions of the world, and you’ll often find me in a coffee shop with a copy of the Bible or Qur’an.

I finished my BA (Hons) in English Studies in 2012 with one child and the hopes of a career in writing. Since then I’ve had two more children and not much of a career in writing. But I can dream.
