What is The Exceptional Man?
This blog was started a few months after my son was born. When you’re a man about to have a son, you start to think about what kind of man you want your son to be. I want my son to be a better man than the world expects – which means I have to start by trying to be a better man, and a better father, than anyone expects. As I’m thinking through how to do that, I write here.
Why does it have such a Chicago focus?
TEM is based in Chicago, and I make it a point to find places and people in Chicago of which men should take note.
Do you have a comments policy?
TEM loves comments. Comments don’t always love TEM, and that’s OK. There is no comment moderation on TEM, unless you happen to be particularly negative and nasty. For that reason, TEM does reserve the right to delete your comment at any time (only to keep away the crazies).
Also, please use your real email (I have no interest in doing anything with it), and don’t use the comments to sell your stuff or your links. That’s just crap, and it’ll get your comment deleted.
Do you have advertising?
For the reader’s sake, and for the sake of design, TEM does not do advertising. If you are interested in getting your product, service or business in front of my readers in other ways, you have a few options. Shoot me an email.
