The Fact Site History
The Fact Site (formally Funky-Facts) was founded in December 2008 by college student Luke Ward.
His 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, more engaging content was produced, which saw increased 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 number 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 2021, The Fact Site launched its “On This Day in History” section, giving daily facts about events, famous birthdays, and special holidays that happen throughout the year.

Meet Our Team
I’m a passionate and professional entrepreneur with over 14 years of experience in fact writing, researching, SEO, web design, and fact-checking.
I’ve always enjoyed learning things they don’t teach you at school, but back in 2008, it wasn’t easy to find reputable fact sites online – so I made one…
The Fact Site started as a small personal site where I shared fun facts about topics that interested me. After a few years (and many emails), I began to let others share facts about things that interested them. And since then, we’ve had over 20 writers produce content for us!
In 2014, I landed an 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.
My interest in learning new things didn’t stop there. I began to travel the world in 2017 and visited 50 countries in 5 years! I made The Fact Site my full-time commitment during my life as a Digital Nomad and haven’t looked back since.
I’m 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 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 built my career working as a freelancer my entire adult life. I’m a stay-at-home mom to my 8 cats, I’ll never be found without a coffee in hand, and I frequent DIY Punk gigs.
I’m a freelance eCommerce content writer and email marketer. When I’m not writing, expect me to be working on my hobbies while documenting my progress.
I’m a travel enthusiast and a lover of nature. I am the co-founder of Global Convoy, a travel production company. When I’m not filming, I enjoy writing about culture and travel.
I’m a med student and freelance writer. I write on diverse topics, including health, wellness, and lifestyle. When not studying or writing, I spend quality time with my family and two dogs.
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 an author and creator of 3 major blog sites and a full-time freelance writer. I write on a plethora of subjects, with my favorites being health, lifestyle, and travel.
