The last couple weeks started to get fairly cold…at least by San Diego standards. I don’t have a work winter coat (more proof of how warm it stays here) and was starting to become the iceman while making the 10 minute walk to my parked car. A twice a day walk; low points of the day. I decided to go see (online shopping) what the going rate was for fleece winter coats. Christmas is over so they must be cheap right? Wrong!!! Still over $100. Now maybe that is a good deal and I’m just clueless about the price of clothing. Didn’t matter! Fortunately for me during a promotion of corporate apparel and custom jackets  I had purchased a company jacket last year and it was hanging in my closet. I’ve been wearing it the past few weeks. I feel like I saved $80 since the company jacket was $20. #Frugal

In other Fearless Men News: We reached  1000 Twitter Followers and for the first time had 1500 page-views yesterday. Todd’s article What Women Want from Men was a huge hit. We’re also learning how to use #HashTags and Twitter more effectively. It’s pretty funny considering we’re in our 9th month of blogging.

Weekly Round-Up | Thank you all for commenting and sharing your articles with the Fearless Men readership.

  1. Thanks for the mention as always John! Awesome news on the page views…that is AWESOME!

  2. Thanks a lot for including me this week.

  3. Thanks John for including me this week. I enjoy this blog and glad it’s available to us as a great resource. Keep up the good content!


  4. Glad to hear you guys are doing so good, thanks for adding me to your weekly roundup.

  5. LOL. You didn’t know how to use #hashtags? I guess you don’t know until you know…and we all have to learn at some point.

    I could be wrong, but even if you don’t use a hashtag I believe it still shows up under a searched term though. Maybe not…

    Anyway, thanks for the linkups! I truly appreciate it and try to stay warm. I’m sure life is really rough for you out there in San Diego. It’s only 15 degrees where I’m at today.

    • haha! Yea! As an IT professional you’d figure I’d know but it wasn’t until watching an episode of The Walking Dead and they’d mention their hashtag that I started to catch on. I’d see them used by others on FB here and there but I never fully understood what the purpose was. I have noticed that some show up under the search but I don’t think it’s all of them.

      It rained a bit today. Almost had to pull out my umbrella….

  6. Thanks for including our post! Have a good one =)

  7. Thanks for the mention! Congrats on the twitter number and huge page views!

  8. Feeling real sorry for your chilly temps. Did I mention it was 12 below here last week? Congrats on the traffic. Thanks for the mention.

  9. Thanks for the mention. I actually own three winter coats, although my favorite one is getting to be rther worse for the wear.
