What happens when you bring Silicon Valley Veterans, Hollywood Executives, and Navy Seals together? Simple! You get some bad ass programming targeting guys like almost nothing out there today. NuBlu TV is a new OTT (Over The Top) streaming channel and we're sponsored to help promote their newest show, "Time Warriors".
Mike Satterfield is one of my favorite male bloggers and we've done a lot of traveling together recently. Not only does he have a great personal style but has deep insight into how to make great content while still focusing on the business aspects of running a blog. At first glance, his site - TheGentlemanRacer.com sounds like "just a car blog" but in fact, he's been able to wrap everything together to talk about other aspects of a modern man's lifestyle including fashion and travel too.
While much of being a great blogger is having something to say and being able to write it down - photography skills are essential too. My hope is that by launching this monthly photo challenge that we can have a fun way to showcase members of the #MenWhoBlog community and improve our skills at the same time. October's theme is "Festive Fall Photos". While some challenges may be more specific and focus on a specific technique, this one is wide open. Simply take an original photo depicting fall in your town or in one that you are visiting this month.
Most people would avoid the extreme heat of the desert - but not us! We're headed to one of the hottest parts of the country to prove our strength, stamina, and fortitude as we explore abandonded gold mines in Joshua Tree National Park and push the TRD Pro Tacoma, Tundra, and 4Runner to the limit.
For this trip, we'll be staying in a luxury villa hosted by Marriott Vacation Rentals at Shadow Ridge.

Lodging: Marriott Vacation Club - Marriott Shadow Ridge Resort
Vehicles: 2017 Toyota TRD Pro Tacoma, Tundra, and 4Runner

In partnership with ManTripping.com, we recently conducted a survey of more than 500 men and asked them on simple question, "Which of these options would be your top pick for a mancation?" Of the six choices, which included golfing in Florida, Skiing in Lake Tahoe, Sport Fishing in Puerto Vallarta, and Road Tripping on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, and a Dude Ranch Adventure in Montana - an Alaska Cruise with Land and Sea Tour was the top pick with 26.4% of the vote!
