Are you getting tired of using social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter? We sure are, which is why we’ve been sharing less and less of AoM’s content on those channels.
Social media platforms can be a semi-useful way to keep up with news and media content, but they come with significant downsides — increasing your itch to frequently check your phone and forcing you to view the content you are interested in, alongside dumb posts and advertising that you’re not.
A better way to keep up with AoM’s content is though our free “Dispatch” service — texts/messages sent directly to your phone through private messaging apps. When you sign up for the Dispatch, you’ll receive just one message/text a day from us, with links to 1-2 articles/podcasts (90% of the time it’s just 1) we published that day, and be able to enjoy the content we send without the distractions of social media. If you get an article or podcast that really resonates with you, forward it to a buddy or family member.
Note that if you already get our daily emails (or subscribe to AoM via RSS), the content you get there and with the Dispatch will be the same. With the email, you get the full text of the article, whereas the Dispatch is just a link. So if you’re already an email subscriber, you don’t need to subscribe to the Dispatch.
Sign Up for The Art of Manliness Dispatch
We have accounts on four of the most popular messaging apps: Messenger, Telegram, WhatsApp, and WeChat. You can follow us at whichever one you prefer.
When you subscribe to our Facebook Messenger Dispatch, you’ll receive a single daily digest of the latest content we’ve published on the site. Again, this is all done in a single message.
