The Man Fast Blog Series Review


So one day I was just cruising my twitter feed looking for blogs to check out, and what came across my TL was a blog entitled The Man Fast, and of course when I saw it I was curious as to what it entailed. Now I'm not going to lie to you, when I saw the tittle, I really thought it was going to be another man bashing post, but I've seen how the author @whoisamberjanae interacts with her TL and from her blog she seemed like a pretty well rounded woman, who's done some extraordinary things. Before I get into the whole review of the blog series, here are the links for each entry in the series and I implore you to read it before you continue, especially if you're one of my female readers:

The Man Fast | 2.0: The Awkward Start | 3.0: What I Walked Away With


Done? Ok let's continue then lol.

The first thing I want to do is commend Amber for taking that next step in life. It takes a very big person to admit that they are not where they want to be and that their priorities are all over the place at the moment, but it takes an even bigger person to commit to change for the better. It's not always easy being critical of yourself and being perceptive enough to recognize the need for change, we tend to be too hard on ourselves, or lack there of, to even admit to personally that we need to make a change, let alone publicly. So on that front I do give her the highest of praises for coming to that conclusion and then letting us be apart of that journey.

The next thing that I was impressed with was the setup and the depth that followed in each post with ending results. That's the key thing with series, either it's open ended with endless entries, as I have so many on my site, or they can be short but effective group of posts. This was a blog series that stated it's purpose, gave the depth and struggles over the month and then it executed all of the revelations and lessons learned in the last entry. This is an example of how to execute a series without much need for a lot of words, and with a clear and concise agenda with conclusion.

I loved everything about this series and I love the end results as well. I wish Amber all the best in her journey as she continues to fashion herself in her own view of what a woman of God should be. More often than not women have a lot of problems that she faced in her first entry, and few find solace in the conclusion in this series. If you noticed I didn't speak on the specifics on any of the entries, that's because I want you to read it because it will help you, even if it's in the littlest of ways. So don't be afraid to click those links and check them out because it's worth a look. And for my male readers, take a gander because there are some lessons in there on understanding how a woman wants to feel valued for levels that can't be seen, rather than levels that are to be seen, this is a gem.

Now that I have concluded reading this wonderful blog series, my next agenda actually is to read the free book Amber has written entitled "A Book About Nothing", and it seems like a good read. I wasn't going to write a book review until 2016, but this one I'm willing to break that rule for. So be on the look out for that next month, click on the link to download the book and read it so we can share thoughts on the review. In addition to that book, there are other books that she has authored, make sure you check those out as well.

I'm done singing my praise for this blog series that took me by complete surprise, if you are interested in connecting with Amber, all of her links where she can be found are listed below, so feel free and contact her with your thoughts an opinions, I'm sure she won't mind in the least bit to hear from you guys. That does it for me this time, until next time guys!
