The Best of Art of Manliness: June 2009

June was a fantastic month for The Art of Manliness. The 30 Days to a Better Man Challenge was a big success. We had over 600 people sign up for the official Community group. Thanks to everyone who participated! Keep your eyes open for the 30 Days to a Better Man eBook.  Also, traffic reached an all time high of 600,000 visits and our subscriber count reached 39,000. Thanks to everyone who has helped spread the word about AoM. We don’t have an advertising budget, so any growth we have is because readers like you are telling your friends about us.

July is going to be an exciting month for AoM. We’ve got some killer content lined up, we’ll be launching a kick-a line of new AoM t-shirts designed by the good folks at TankFarm, and we’ll be giving the site a face lift so it loads faster and is more user friendly. Stay tuned!

Let’s take a look at June’s most popular posts.
