The Fun Times Guide is a network of websites (32 and counting!) that cover a variety of niche topics.
In 2004, we (Jim Walczak and Lynnette Walczak) started The Fun Times Guide as a simple “fun” blog — mostly just for our friends and family to see what we were up to. It was loaded with pictures and little-known facts. You know, things that make you go “Hmmm….”
As our readership rapidly increased, we soon realized that there were lots more people — besides our friends and family — who were interested in the same things we were!
So we changed directions a bit and took The Fun Times Guide from a personal blog to a website that covered a lot of different topics. The information was based on the unique things that we experienced or learned firsthand — from customer service issues, to purchasing decisions, to breeds of dogs, to frugal money-saving ideas.
Our theory was: if XYZ worked for us, then someone else might be interested in trying that too! And: if we’d spent a good deal of time searching for answers to our own questions about something, then chances were pretty good that someone else probably has the same questions about the same thing and could benefit from the information we’ve learned along the way.
We now had a purpose. The Fun Times Guide became a tool to help others.
Since our dogs have always played an important role in our lives and we found ourselves writing quite a bit about them (from how we trained them to outside-the-box ideas that really worked), The Fun Times Guide to Dogs became our first sub-site on the network. To date, it remains one of our most popular websites.
From there, we branched out and started writing about other topics that we knew a lot about — like Household Tips, Personal Finance, and Healthy Living — to name a few. As the topics we wrote about gained in popularity, we kept organizing the content into more and more niche websites.
Today, with the help of others who are passionate about the same topics we are, we are able to share a vast array of personal experiences and years of research on a variety of topics — from household pets to food, crafts, sports, the weather, and everything in between!
We are humbled that The Fun Times Guide has become what it is today. It’s definitely a fun way for us to help others in a small way.
THANK YOU for stopping by The Fun Times Guide.
Our aim is to help you find answers to your questions on a variety of topics, while providing you with the resources needed to make your own informed decisions.
We hope that you find our websites helpful… and FUN!
