May was a spectacular month for the Art of Manliness, thanks to all you awesome readers. Subscribers climbed to over 10,000. I’ve also been getting some great emails from you all on topic suggestions. I try to respond to every email I receive, but sometimes I get swamped and can’t reply to them all. But be assured, I do read your email.
