Barbershop Forums, The Real Men’s Community Online
One of the coolest things I get to enjoy with a blog that’s read by thousands daily is getting business proposals on an almost-equally daily basis. Sure, much of it is blatant garbage that the sender thinks he/she can convince me to promote by sending me an email sugarcoating my eyes with such marvelous and ingenious generic phrases as “I love your website, can you promote my X piece of donkey crap” or ” the content in your blog is truly exceptional, can you link to my spammy site?”; however, every once in a while someone will contact me with an innovative idea that is of actual use to my readers (i.e. you). Since the goal of Manly Curls is no other than to offer great content, mainly hair-care content, that doesn’t make you feel like you have just gone through a Cosmopolitan-reading rampage, I’m always keen to help promote anyone who has gone the length to provide something of value to humanity.
Enter Barbershop Forums
Just like last time I brought you the Men’s Hair Forum – an awesome and pioneering men’s hair-care community – it is this time that I bring you with great pleasure yet-another pioneering men’s site and community, Barbershop Forums.
You see, fellow Manly Curls readers, it is a reality that just about all men’s websites/blogs/forums are full of pompous fluff and guys who think spending $600 on some funny Peter Pan shoes and dressing like their great-grandfathers used to dress makes one some sort of new-age dandy or sophisticated gentleman (P.S: it doesn’t). Ergo, the Barbershop Forums are here to bring you that male online experience like no one has ever done before, and they are basing their core concept on actually recreating an online barbershop where men can get together and discuss absolutely anything to do with living life as a male without the diva baloney; now, that’s what I call innovating! — unlike the couple of “men’s lifestyle forums” I have browsed in the past that made me cringed and facepalm myself repeatedly, especially when I read the hair-care advice being spouted.
It goes without saying that, just like in the Men’s Hair Forum, I too have joined the Barbershop Forums and will be discussing with you folks (and folkettes!) about “whatever” male stuff; the Barbershop Forums are more of a place to go there and spend the evening discussing how much you dislike Kate Upton thinking it is OK for her to encourage men to shave their whole body or, on the other hand, spend the evening learning about the art of shaving, men’s hairstyles or having a laugh posting Chuck Norris epic beard pictures (and getting some motivation to grow a beard too!). Seriously, just go there and have some fun time.
The Barbershop Forums are brand new, and, by that, I mean brand new as in “only a couple of days” new; thus, the forums are scarcely populated at the moment as more and more people join in and interact, although some great discussions are already taking place with the bunch of users who have joined thus far. Likewise, the design and feel of the whole site is awesome and certainly makes you want to stay there for the whole evening after work while downing some whiskey on the rocks and listening to The Doors. I encourage you guys to visit the Barbershop Forums and join the community; the whole purpose of the site is to create a kickass online community that talks the talk without fluffing the fluff, which is akin to what I do here at Manly Curls and what you guys know me for. And, as I’ve said, I’ll be there with my curls chatting to you dudes, and I won’t be there just to discuss intellectual stuff such as who is hotter, Shakira or Salma Hayek, but I will also be shelling out advice on hair care, fitness and other men’s lifestyle topics whenever my advice or help is requested (and other men’s lifestyle experts will be part of the community too).
The Barbershop Forums do truly look up to be one heck of an online community, and I’m supporting their cause because I’m 100% confident that the Barbershop Forums will be of use to all of you. What’s more is that the Barbershop Forums are free to join and the moderating team that is being built, as we speak, is as anti-spam as it can get, so you’re ensured from the very beginning a spam-less, scam-less and fluff-less interacting experience!
So there, folks. Go now and join the Barbershop Forums; I’ll see you inside!
All the best,
