A lot of new stuff for you guys today!
As you can see, we’ve changed the look and feel of this blog, as well as added a few new features. We also have not one, but two new Alpha Male 2.0 forums to replace the old Alpha 2.0 Community.
Really quick before I get into all this; at this blog, there will be various little problems and bugs over the next few days. Please be patient; we will sort these out ASAP and be all done in a few days.
New Blackdragon Blog
New features of this blog include:
– Dark mode. Tons of you requested this; now you have it in the menu above.
– Better display on mobile devices. The blog looks better and reads better on phones and tablets now.
– Easier navigation of older articles.
– Less clutter on the top and sides of the screen, particularly in the desktop version.
– A paid option where you can listen to audio versions of every article (meaning all new ones as of this week), plus get extended audio content that isn’t in the article, plus download PDF versions. These audios are all in my voice, like mini-podcasts. We’ve been doing this for a while over at the CJ Blog and the guys have really liked it. It only costs a pathetic $3 a month for all this.
– More features coming once we get the bugs ironed out in this new version. I’ll talk about those later.
The New and Improved Alpha 2.0 Community Forum
As most of you know, we were using the Ning platform for the Alpha Male 2.0 forums. Per your many requests (and a poll I did over there a few months back), I have chucked all that, and now we have a real Alpha Male 2.0 forum. The new Alpha 2.0 Community Forums are located here, now open for the public:
We are using Xenforo forum software, the best forum software there is, fully SSL secured. Head on over there and set up your account so you can ask questions and give advice to your Alpha 2.0 brothers. I will be dropping in there from time to time, plus I will have forum-member-only podcasts there as well. It’s open for anyone and completely free. It will be moderated and run by our very own Caveman Lenox, and we will recruit additional mods if needed as we grow.
I will leave the old forums up for a few weeks (they’re still at alpha20.ning.com) before taking those down. We have around 650 members over there, and you guys are encouraged to set up a new account and avatar at the new alpha20community.com. You are also welcome to copy and paste posts from the old forum to the new one if you wish.
Alpha Male 2.0 Facebook Group
For those of you who prefer a Facebook group rather than an actual forum (or in addition to one!), we have set up a public Alpha Male 2.0 Facebook Group you can use as a forum instead, or in addition to the Alpha 2.0 Community Forum. Just log into Facebook and then go here to join the group. I will be popping in there from time to time as well.
Note: This public Alpha Male 2.0 Facebook group is not the same as the two private groups for the Alpha 2.0 Business course or the Consultant Course. Those are different, private, restricted to participants in those courses only, and will remain so.
Instead, this group is a public group for Alpha 2.0s and those men who are working on their business and/or woman skills.
If you’re wondering why I did both a forum and a Facebook group, that’s because I wanted those guys concerned about privacy to be able to have access to an online community, as well as guys who prefer Facebook. One of the most common questions I get is “Hey BD, where can I find other Alpha 2.0s?” I want to make sure that guys of all preferences have access to other guys who have the same interests.
So pick one or both forums, sign up, and enjoy. They are for you.
New Blogging and Content Schedule
Starting next Monday, April 8th, I will adopt a new blog posting schedule across both of my blogs, which will look like this:
Blackdragon Blog articles will be posted every Monday at 5am PST, once per week.
Caleb Jones Blog articles will be posted every Thursday at 5am PST, once per week.
“Announcement” blog posts regarding new products, services, seminars, and so on can also be posted and will not count towards this once-per-week article schedule (nor will audio versions be done for those particular posts). My two blogs will be the twin edges of the Alpha Male 2.0’s sword. The new and improved Caleb Jones Blog is about business, finance / investments, and lifestyle, while the Blackdragon Blog will continue to be about dating and relationships with women.
Yes, that means I will be posting articles less often than before, but before you freak out, remember that I’m offering additional audio content for each article for just $3 a month.
Also and more importantly, there’s a lot more free content for you coming very soon. I can’t give you details on this yet, but I’ll summarize an overview for you.
We are about to enter phase three in my long-term business plan for this Blackdragon company.
Phase one was writing The Unchained Man and getting that information out to thousands of men all over the world (accomplished), as well as updating all of my Blackdragon books and content (completed in late 2017).
Phase two was introducing my online courses and my World Tour (completed and ongoing).
Phase three is… well, I’ll just say this: by mid-June at the very latest, my team (which is in the process of doubling in size) and I are going to unleash a massive amount of new, regular, free content all over the internet. I’m talking about audio of me, video of me and others (in various formats), social media content on at least five platforms, and some more stuff beyond that I can’t talk about right now.
I can’t give a lot of specifics about this yet, but you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about shortly. Those of you who keep asking me for video or more podcasts are going to get what you want in a very big way. It’s actually kind of insane; unlike anything I’ve done in my life. I’ve dropped almost 30 pounds since December and reoriented certain aspects of my life getting ready for this.
