Happy Tuesday to you all, I sure hope your day treats you kindly as I continue to send you *virtual high fives* through the power of the interwebs for the week ahead.

Today I want to take a stand and express my true love....for my beard that is. I mean, my life before my furry face forest seems like a distant memory stored in photographic images, so much so that I don't even recognise myself in family photos without my fuzz. So, why would I ever want to be without it again ever? Putting it simple, I wouldn't!

So, today I wanted to give you a few reasons why a mans beard is much more than just light stubble that sits upon his cheeks, as we begin with today's blog topic, titled - We're All About That Beard, No Stubble!...


It might seem a tad strange to the beardless, (also know as women and boys!) but it is indeed true. If you ask any bearded man they would tell you a tale of how their face fuzz isn't just fuzz, but an epic manly beard that can boost ones confidence like nothing else could.

Before I had my beard I had struggled somewhat with my image, I was never one to have the slick popular hairstyle, or dressed to impress in the latest fashionable clothes, I was just little old me. Since growing my beard out It has become a huge part of my life, my image, pretty much my lifestyle. Being a little older (just a little though, mind!) and somewhat balder, I feel happier than I ever have within myself, and I owe a lot of this to my face fuzz. It truly can open so many doors and opportunities, and for that I will forever respect the bearded, and I know I am not alone when I say this.


Not only do you feel a million dollars sporting your snazzy beard, but you also look like a motherfudging bad ass, and everyone knows this.

Having blogged about mans facial hair for well over a year here at 'The Beard Struggle', I've become a tad obsessed with it all. But in a good way of course, I see many epic beards day in day out, and rarely if ever do I spot a bad beard. They can add an entire different look to a mans image for the better, despite some negative comments and bad press over the years, many of which are debugged as false reaction articles. Make no mistake about it that beards are here to stay, and rightfully so.


Have you ever found yourself at a loose end, lacking a little motivation or the pause for thought needed to make your next move? Being a blogger I often find myself with what some call a 'writer's block' where my brain goes to mush and I run out of words to type out. But how do I overcome this bump in the road? Much like many other beard gents would, I pause and have a jolly good fondle....of my beard that is! Keep it clean, you mucky minded lot!

It is a true story that a mans beard often becomes his thinking tool. A quick and rather witty tweak or stroke of those face whiskers often are exactly what is needed in order to think clearer and carry on forward. Plus, how intelligent, or villainous does a man stroking his beard appear? Either way you're onto a winner.


When all's said and done, and 'No Shave November' has been and gone, you are left with what should now resemble a smashingly awesome beard. It comes down to your choice on if you should or should not now 'brave the shave' and kiss goodbye to your now prideful face full of whiskers.

Some feel pressured to shave by their workplace, or maybe a disapproving family member, but when all is done and dusted it is your call and your call alone on if you should or should not shave. Of course we support you on your bearded journey, and fully encourage you to continue along on your path to bearded epicness.

But the ball is ultimately in your court, those who initially disapprove will soon warm to the idea if they haven't done so already. Plus, it's getting harshly cold outside as the winter season creeps in and it would be rather rude to sport a 'nakey face' on the frosty elements *wink wink* ;)

That sees today's blog come to a sweet close for this cold Tuesday morning my friends. I sure hope you've been enjoying our daily blog content this month. If you'd like to leave us some feedback, or maybe suggest a topic you would like to read about in a future post then please be sure to let us know in the comments section provided below.

And until next time, Beard on Brothers, Beard on...
