The Experiment!

I have occasionally dabbled with posting my “Shave Of The Day” (SOTD) but it’s usually been on social media or in Sharpologist’s “portfolio” section.  But for the month of September I’m planning to post them on the main blog on weekdays that don’t have a regular article, to gauge traffic and reader response.
I plan to mix SOTD content with commentary on either the products I used, the techniques I shaved with, or maybe no commentary at all.  Then at the end of the month I’ll solicit your feedback to see whether it’s worth continuing.
