looseferspeaks is a blog site that tightly focuses on strange, lesser-known, and interesting facts around the world.
Are you a bit confused reading the terms “loosticles” and “looseferfacts”?
Let me clarify what they mean! These are just terms that I coined for articles and quick facts, respectively.
To be specific, I write facts on the site in two formats:
loosticles have the standard format of articles and lists.
Under normal circumstances, I publish loosticles once every one to two weeks. Also, keep in mind that the website is run solely by me, and researching good content takes time and effort.
looseferfacts is principally an archive of facts that I post on various social media platforms. These are visual, quick-facts and they come with a brief description in an image-text format. You can find the facts in the looseferfacts section. Because the facts are image-text, I have grouped them as monthly archive posts. Visually pleasing and with precise information, looseferfacts are handy for people desiring to learn facts in a short period.
Why do I post the quick facts on the website at all, if am posting them on social media anyway?
The reason I post them is for reference. I cite various sources and also the due image credits. On social media platforms, it is very inconvenient to provide proper image credits and all the sources (I usually provide at least three). If I put the credits on the image itself, it won’t be an active link which attributions require. Therefore, I find the best way to credit and cite sources is to do so on my website and then link to my site for reference.
I strive to make the content well-written, easily verifiable, focused on the topic, without any editorial bias, and supported with illustrations wherever possible. Every fact on the website is already out there. I try to make them more readable and user-friendly with images. There is no singular source out there that one should trust 100%. For this reason, I always cite multiple sources for every fact I upload (usually 3-4).
