Frequently Asked Questions: Part I

We get a lot of frequent questions about the site. I created a page that answers some of these questions, but a lot of people don’t visit it, so I wanted to address some of these questions in a blog post. But instead of writing out a text blog post, I thought it would be fun to do it in video format.

Below, you’ll find the first in a series of short videos answering some of the FAQs we get around here. In this edition, I talk about:

  • how and why I started AoM
  • the difference between manliness and things that are simply manly (hint: whether or not you have a Mad Men haircut has nothing to do with your manliness)
  • that the site is meant to be both serious and philosophical and fun and practical
  • whether I’m an expert in the field of manliness (spoiler: I’m not)

Let me know what you think!

Edit: I’ve been getting emails from people asking me where I got the shirt I have on in the video. I got it from TankFarm Clothing, the same gentlemen who design and print the AoM t-shirts. I’m actually wearing Tankfarm shirts in almost all the AoM videos I’ve done. Dudes make nice, manly stuff.
