Our History

The Fact Site started back in 2009, originally as Funky-Facts. This was our first-born and has been the backbone behind The Fact Network.

In 2012, we switched from Google’s Blogger platform to WordPress, and changed our name to The Fact Site. This was our first major step in the right direction. With this change came a clearer focus, a better brand name and a superior website.

In 2013, we searched for freelance writers who had an interest in facts, and could provide a fresh feel to the content provided at The Fact Site. Since then, we’ve had over 15 freelance writers provide us with facts about subjects they’re interested in.

In 2015, we re-branded The Fact Site with a new color scheme, a new logo and new expansion, The Fact Shop.
