The Fact Site History
The Fact Site (formally Funky-Facts) started back in December 2008 by an underachieving college student, Luke Ward.
His only goal was to share the facts he learned and hope somebody, somewhere would share his love for fun facts.
In February 2011, Funky-Facts had a huge makeover and re-branded to The Fact Site. During this year, Luke spent time learning the audience and produced engaging content to boost traffic and reputation.
In 2012, The Fact Site became more diverse in topics and had 3 authors producing weekly content. This year we reached 100,000 unique monthly visitors.
In May 2013, The Fact Site moved to WordPress and hasn’t looked back since!
Between 2014 & 2015, The Fact Site went through many changes to become more professional, and have a better standard of writing. Our facts were researched more and checked against multiple sources. The goal during this period was to provide the best online service for factual information, as well as the most trustworthy source for facts.
Late 2015 saw a re-brand, along with a new logo and color scheme. By this point we had 6 authors producing content for The Fact Site.
In February 2016, The Fact Shop was launched. Because of the large amount of suggestions we had received, we set up an online store selling our favorite facts on clothing and other merchandise.
In December 2018, The Fact Site celebrated its 10th birthday by writing the largest list of facts on the internet! These facts were individually written and researched by our amazing team.
In 2019, The Fact Site had it’s very own theme developed, giving you a faster site experience! Our theme will be developed further to aid the continuing success over the next 10 years.
Be sure to follow us for the newest facts, our favorite lists and a whole bunch of random information.
Meet Our Team
I’m a passionate, professional blogger with over 13 years experience in WordPress, SEO, Web Design, Factual Researching & Internet Wizardry.
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 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.
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.
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 when 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’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 circus-tricker, gamer, reader and TV watcher. I love spending my spare time watching shows like The Walking Dead, and spinning some diabolo or rope-dart when I haven’t got my nose buried in a book, article or laptop.
For a day job I’m a writer for an architecture firm and I also work with a friend on the side to run Mercian Publishing, a small independent publishing label that’s looking to give aspiring authors the chance they all need.
I hope you enjoy my work here and please don’t hesitate to contact me if you like.
I’m an avid traveler and enjoyer of all the good things life can throw my way. These days you’ll find me teaching English and writing, while running my own campervan business.
I’ve always had a thirst for knowledge which places me perfectly as an editor for The Fact Site. In my spare time, I’m a lover of travel, health and fitness, and languages.

I’m a freelance writer & blogger and I’m loving it! My focus and passion is traveling, which I’m doing full time. I enjoy writing about traveling & TV shows.
