Ok, let me get these two words off of my chest. I’m sorry!
I’m sure some of you are probably thinking, “sorry for what Craig?”. Well, I’m apologizing for not holding up my end of the bargain to remain consistent with the content on this site. I started this blog 8 years ago in an effort to educate my clientele as well as the public on grooming with specific knowledge of what I experienced from the barber chair. It was fun from the start-up, especially as I began to recognize the positive impact I was making with you as my TMR family and in the men’s grooming industry.
At the time, I was writing 3 articles a week, working full-time at a barbershop, managing a small on-location clientele and traveling around the country as a spokesperson for Lab Series Skincare for Men. I “managed” all of this for 5+ years without missing a beat (kind of), while somehow also maintaining a relationship with my wife!
When my son, Isaac, was born, his presence challenged me to be more present for him and my wife. Realistically, it was no longer about me but us as a family. Six years into running TheMensRoom.com, I began tapering off my writing and clearly left many of you with unmet needs (yes, I read the emails). So again, my sincere apology.
This year, my goal is to be intentional in reshaping TheMensRoom.com to be a more solid destination for readers. The changes will happen over time and will cover several design elements but, most importantly, the content will remain empowering, consistent (working on schedule) and easy to find. With that said, I truly hope you stay on this ride with me because I really enjoy the company!
