Can I just say yes in a loud shout for a few seconds? 2015 is over and 2016 is here and it’s ready to be explored. Last year was a roller coaster and the Ruggedlygroomed brand grew like wild fire but I am very thankful and blessed. I know a lot of people are wondering where I was for about 5 months, but to keep it short and sweet, sometimes you have to take a break and handle life. I am now blogging 75% of my time and I can’t lie, the weight off my shoulder has been a joyful one indeed. Once the holidays rolled around, I figured I just keep hanging with family and finish out the year before I came back. If you follow me on IG and Twitter (@ruggedlygroomed) you would of saw my message saying that I would be back in 2016.
On to other news, Ruggedlygroomed.com is back and like my man LL Cool J once said, ‘don’t call this a come back, I been here for years!’ I have some updates for everyone as well. To expand the growing RG brand, I’ve expanded the concept a bit. My blog is about men’s grooming for men of color but I want to add some elements of lifestyle to the concept. To me a well-groomed man goes way beyond looks and style, but more about the culture of a man. It’s about his intellect, interest in art and culture, his want to expand his mind and interest in understanding the world around him. I know, I know, very deep but a well-rounded man is a well-groomed man in my book. You will see a lot of new sections going up on the blog very soon so stay tuned for it all. I’ve enjoyed updating you all and I hope you can stay on this journey with me; lets have some fun!
Over the last couple of months I’ve written some postings that are new to you but not new to me. I wanted to post them on the site so you can see what I’ve been up to and some content to hold you over until the next post goes up. I have them listed below with the link from oldest to newest. Enjoy!
