Hey there fellow manly men!
This is my first post of many on these forums. I've decided I want to reach out and ask for help.
I would really like to start a club/group on campus that would essentially be a physical arm of artofmanliness.com. I would like to teach some of the skills, concepts, ideas, inspirations, and so on that we value so much here on the site.
Let me give you a short story on how this site has literally helped me change my life.
I am a student at Louisiana Tech in Ruston, Louisiana studying Speech Communications. I'm 21 and have been a fan of Art of Manliness for about a year.
My first visit to the site:
I StumbleUpon-ed the site. I believe it was the "How to Shave Like Your Grandpa" story that I first read. I was enthralled. I went to Wal-Mart that night and bought a brush and some shaving soap. (I was surprised too!) That Christmas, I bought a kit from http://www.classicshaving.com
for a friend, but it turns out he doesn't like using real razors. So I kept it for me.
That was last Christmas (2008).
Now, I shave just about every day with a Merkur HD. I use Old Spice aftershave. I wear boots and leather jackets. I cook breakfast. I am a man that can treat a lady well.
All this thanks to a great southern upbringing and ArtofManliness.com
It's not fair for me to keep all of this great knowledge to myself. I want to share it with fellow young men on my campus because I feel that I can connect with them and help them to learn the skills, mindsets, and everything else manly that we share here. I want to create a culture of true manliness, not most of the crap we see on tv.
So, here's my call to you:
How can I bring what I am learning here to those other young men on my campus? What should I bring them? What can I do to create that culture that we have here?
I can handle the logistics of actually starting the group, but what I'm looking for is the meat. What can I feed the young men who are just starting out on their own journey?
I know that you guys have a lot of great input and wisdom. Can you find it in yourself to impart that to a young man trying to help others find the manliness inside of them?
I thank you in advance for your help and participation.
