Inspiring men bloggers on International Mens Day

Men! Men! Men! What would we do without them! Some say you cannot live with them, while others say you cannot live without them!

“But men are men; the best sometimes forget.” ~ William Shakespeare

Yes, we sometimes forget the value of men in our lives. Here is wishing all the wonderful men a very Happy International Men’s Day 🙂

This post is to honor the top inspiring men bloggers of Aha!NOW, just as we honored the women bloggers this year.

International Men’s Day (IMD) is celebrated as the day to highlight the achievements and contributions made by men to their family, marriage, childcare, and community.

According to Wikipedia, it’s an international event celebrated on 19th November each year. You can read more about IMD here.

The main focus includes the health of boys and men, to improve and promote gender equality, and highlight the discrimination against them.

However, at Aha!NOW we have always celebrated such events by honouring the men and women bloggers who have contributed to the success of this blog.

“A man does what he must – in spite of personal consequences, in spite of obstacles and dangers, and pressures – and that is the basis of all human morality.”  ~ John Kennedy

I’d like to congratulate ALL the men, whether they are bloggers or not, and wish that they have a great day, as it is their day today.

Let us not forget the wonderful men that are part of our lives. We see them in the form of our fathers, brothers, sons, husbands, and grandfathers too!

Life is not easy for the men in our lives, as they have to prove themselves by fulfilling the requirements of their families, besides the several other tasks they perform.

I am lucky to have an adorable dad and a loving husband, and I am sure you too must have such men in your life that you can relate to.

So, just as we had the Inspiring Men Bloggers of Aha!NOW last year, let’s honor the male bloggers of the blog for this year.

10 Inspiring Men Bloggers of Aha!NOW

There are many who visit Aha!NOW, and it’s tough to shortlist just a handful of men bloggers for this award, but it was a pleasure to do so.

These wonderful men bloggers have been the pillars of the blog, and they are from all over the world with various niches.

They have been regular visitors of the blog and have added value to the posts through their comments, and shared the posts further.

We remain ever so grateful for their contributions and constant support, and this is our little way of giving back. Giving thanks before Thanksgiving! 🙂

“Great men are they who see that spiritual is stronger than any material force – that thoughts rule the world.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Those were the ten gems of Aha!NOW, and of course the ABC (Aha!NOW Blog Community), which is a part of the blog.

I feel bad to have left out so many others, who are readers and visitors of the blog too, but perhaps they were not as regular due to various reasons.

Let me say that we appreciate everyone for being a part of the blog. 🙂

End of The Awards

These Top 10 Inspiring Men Bloggers of Aha!NOW awards were the last of the series.

That’s because this blog has now become a multi-author blog, just as I’d mentioned in my previous post.  As there are going to be many authors hereon, we cannot expect bloggers to be regular each time.

There would be new guests and faces seen each time, so if you also wish to get your post published on Aha!NOW, you can find all the information here.

However, we loved having the men and women awards for the past three years, and may come up with something new and creative, so stay tuned!

Why We Are Back Sooner Than Expected

Yes, we are back! I know some of you might be thinking as to what made us change our mind. 🙂

Honestly speaking, we got many requests from our readers to not close the blog for a long break, and some sent us guest posts and sponsored posts, asking us to publish them earlier.

Not to mention, my good friend Carolyn, from The Wonder of Tech, suggested in her comment to celebrate the 5th Anniversary of Aha!NOW that falls on 25th December, by putting up a post, as we do each year!

And of course, we didn’t want to miss out of mentioning the inspiring men bloggers of Aha!NOW also.

So, keeping all the above in mind, we thought to change our stand and resume with the blogging activities.

“Don’t wait for extraordinary opportunities. Seize common occasions and make them great. Weak men wait for opportunities; strong men make them.”  ~ Orison Swett Marden

However, you know we are working on the new ABC, for which you can register here. In addition, we have a few projects in the pipeline that need to be worked on and will take time.

Thus, you might be seeing more of guest posts and sponsored posts or reviews for a while on Aha!NOW, and less of me!

It also means less of social media and blog visits and comments, which would be tough for me, but I just have to hibernate and get to work now! So, please do not get alarmed. 🙂

You know one needs time to sit and work on anything new you start, and it is a matter of time before we would be back with full force. The projects may take a while, but you’d know of them as they are done up gradually.

So, if anyone of you wishes to write for Aha!NOW, just send over your pitches – we’d love to have you over as our guest.

Bloggers or non-bloggers, ALL are welcome, because we believe everyone has a story, a life experience, and something to share that would help others.

Wrapping up

If you are one of the recipients of the Top 10 Inspiring Men Bloggers of Aha!NOW and would like to put up the banner on your blog, just contact me and I’d send you the exact code.

“Live as brave men; and if fortune is adverse, front its blows with brave hearts.” ~ Marcus Tullius Cicero

Wishing all the sons, fathers, brothers, husbands, and grandfathers a very Happy Men’s Day 🙂

    Well finally some one has written something about men bloggers. It was interesting to read about them.

    Hi Harleena,

    What an honor! I know my friends here have not seen me around but like John Kennedy said, “A man does what he must” and that’s what I’ve been doing. What I love most about the people here is they understands it’s okay to be human. I have always felt comfortable sharing my inner self here.

    I look up to the men on this list because they are just good people who gives guidance and support. So if you’re new here get connected and stay connected. Mostly have fun and allow yourself to grow.

    It’s truly a blessing to have made the list.

    Nice post highlighting (men) bloggers who may not be well-known (yet), but still have value to put out to their readers.

    Keep writing these great post Harleena!

    Hello Harleena maam,
    First off, I congratulate the other 9 men bloggers who did so well to form a community for our Aha!NOW. I am grateful to you for letting me seep in amidst these wonderful personalities.
    I know almost all of them and they are doing so well in their respective blogs and services.
    This series gave so much to me but as they say all good things must end.
    I know you are coming up with another brilliant idea.

    All the best for your upcoming projects maam. I know they’ll be spectacular.
    -Swadhin

      Hi Swadhin,

      Thank you for your wishes, which is accepted on their behalf 🙂

      And the 10th one, that is you – many congratulations to have made it to this list as well. How could you not! Yes, you’d be knowing most of these men bloggers, and those whom you don’t, I’m sure you’d like to connect with.

      That’s true, every beginning has an end, and as I mentioned in the post about the reason we are closing these series, we might come up with something new in it’s place, so stay tuned!

      Thanks for stopping by and kind wishes, we sure need them all. 🙂

    Hi Harleena,

    I saw this post shared on Facebook and thought I’d hop over to say ‘congratulations’ to these top 10 men bloggers. I’m familiar with most of the names and have enjoyed reading the different topics they share, but its good to catch a couple of new names too.

    Nice to see you back too Harleena after your break!

      Hi David,

      Kind of you to stop by – it’s always a pleasure to have you over. 🙂

      I’m sure you know most of the wonderful bloggers mentioned in this list, and the ones you don’t know – you’d love to connect with, as each one is an inspiration in himself and covers different niches.

      Thanks for stopping by, and yes, my short break was over sooner than expected! 🙂

    Hey Harleena,

    Ah, they convinced you to not go totally MIA throughout the end of this year. I’m sure it’s hard doing it all when you have that new site you’re still working on. I know that feeling, I’ve fallen way behind with working on mine.

    This was a wonderful tribute and I know most of these amazing gentlemen. I’m sure they are all very flattered to be mentioned and happy to be included since this is the last of this series.

    Ah, you’re turning this blog into a multi-author blog. I wish you the best with that and I’m sure you’re really excited about where you are headed. Eager to see how it all works out for you.

    Have a great week and I wish you the very best moving forward Harleena.

    ~Adrienne

      Hi Adrienne,

      You bet they did! Just didn’t let me even take it really off! 🙂

      But it’s always good to be back, though I’m glad to have had a little time off when my Dad was visiting us, so that sure was a breather.

      Yes, it’s never easy to work on various projects when you are blogging consistently also, so now we intend to take things slow, to avoid being overwhelmed.

      I’m sure you know all of these inspiring men bloggers as you’re so wonderful in relationship building, and this tribute was long overdue, just as we had one for the women bloggers earlier this year.

      Yes, we’d mentioned about having guest authors write for us also long back in one of my earlier posts, as we get so many requests from bloggers and non-bloggers. After all, it’s everyone’s blog as much as ours now.

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your wonderful thoughts. Have a nice, rest of the week as well 🙂

    Hi Harleena,

    How great it is to see you back in action. What a wonderful tribute to these men. I know most of them and they do deserve recognition for their work. But most importantly how they interact with others. They have one thing in common…giving.

    Each and every one listed here that I know is always putting others before themselves and that is the most impressive thing anyone can do.

    Now I’m off to visit two on this list I haven’t met yet. So thank you for putting this together.

    -Donna

      Hi Donna,

      Sorry for the late reply, but good to take up these pending comments now. 🙂

      Yes, this tribute was long overdue, just as we’ve been having each year for both, men and women. I agree with you about the interaction part, and it’s the connections made and relationships built that make all the difference in the blogosphere, isn’t it?

      I so agree about the giving part, and that’s why all of these men bloggers are inspirations in themselves, and there is such a lot to learn from them, especially as their niches are so wide and interesting.

      Hope you connected with the two you didn’t know from this list, as I’m sure you’d love doing that as you are so good in relationship building and networking.

      Thanks for stopping by, and hope you’re well soon. 🙂

    Hey Harleena,

    Great list you have here for International men day. It’s about time us men get a day celebrated for us .

    As the year is winding down and I only have one post left for the year, I’ll make a conscious effort to check out each one of the sites of the men you mentioned here.

    Also, when is HarleenaSingh.com gonna be officially live. Can’t wait to see the content you come out with there.

    – Andrew

      Hi Andrew,

      Good to have you back after long, and so glad you liked this list on Men’s Day 🙂

      Yes, even men need a special day to call their own, just as we have one for Women, and I’m glad they came up with one sometime back.

      I’m sure you’d love to check out the blogs you haven’t already, as all of these inspiring men bloggers have something to offer. My personal blog would take time now as we returned earlier than expected, and we are yet to start with the projects in hand, but we are at it all.

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your views 🙂

    Hi Harleena

    Glad you are back and what a great entrance with this awesome post! Lovely selection indeed. All with the exception of two I follow their blogs so yes, it’s a great choice of top inspiring bloggers.

    Congratulations to everyone on this list and even those who did not make it – there is going to be a next one for sure. Have a great weekend!

      Hi Yvonne,

      Welcome back from your little break too. 🙂

      Yes, good to be back, though we could hardly take anytime off, other than the little time I had to spend with my Dad who was visiting us earlier. Need to go into hibernation to work now! Glad you liked the list and know most of these inspirational men bloggers, while the others you’d love to connect with I’m sure.

      Thanks for stopping by and cheering everyone. Have a nice weekend, and will see you soon. 🙂
