Sometimes we miss great content on The Good Men Project.
On The Good Men Project, great content flies by at 30 P.P.D. (posts per day) Yes, 30!
Posts that get popular and make the top ten stick around for some time. But what about other meaningful posts that also directly impact our readers lives? These articles and stories can fly under the social media radar and fail to get the attention they deserve.
Here are some great stories from the past week you might have missed.
Dixie Gillaspie offers two posts:
- 4 Things I Learned About My Business from Losing Good Friends
- When Will We Give Men Permission to Care?

It’s easy to set a standard of being “that friend.” The one that sees only the good, the one that isn’t needy in the relationship, the one that gives without keeping score.
