I’m On Vacation


If you’re reading this it means that I’m still somewhere in Europe, probably trying to find and take pictures of the places they filmed the Taken movies. I’ve decided to take a vacation and have left the site in the hands of an algorithm I trust more than my family to post a random piece of content from the site’s archives. 

If you’re reading this site for the first time, everything you can see on this website was created by one person, me, Karl Smallwood. Writing has paid my bills for the past 3 years and I’m very proud of the portfolio of content I’ve created for this site in that time. However, I’ve decided to take a break from writing to see the world.

Factfiend will continue to be updated, but with old content at a rate of one article per day. I apologise if the posting algorithm republishes a Christmas article or something. It’s not an ideal situation, but the alternative was simply not posting anything for a month and I didn’t want people thinking I’d died. Thank you for supporting my website, this started as a silly personal project and it is incredibly humbling to be able to say it has helped partially pay for a trip around the world.
