That’s right, fellas. Western Mastery is 1 year old.
It started on November 26, 2016.
Western Mastery has hit over 41000 views and 1400 Twitter followers after its first year. Those stats aren’t breath-taking, but they’re definitely not bad for a website built from scratch.
Here are Western Mastery’s page view stats. You can see steady growth, particularly starting in April this year. Most months saw growth in page views over the previous month. November isn’t over yet, but it looks like it will end up about the same as October.
For the first year of a “niche” website that had no prior following, I’ll take it for now. By next year, I aim to hit significantly more.
Western Mastery is my personal brand. It’s a reflection of my interests and my talents, and I reflect that upon my writing. I aim to teach others what I’ve learned over the years, and I desire to enhance my own self-development by communicating with and teaching like-minded men.
I’ve heard mostly very positive things about my work. Most of you seem to like the shit that I put out there for you.
I’ve heard more criticism recently too, but I welcome it. Criticism shows that my reach is expanding. The legitimate feedback makes me better at what I do and makes me more confident in what I know. I don’t care about the trolling and other assorted nonsense.
You may not know exactly who I am (only a few readers of this site do), but I suppose that’s the risk you have to take if you read my shit. One day, however, I will probably go public. Although I don’t think most of the content necessarily requires you to know much about me.
I also believe you can, to a reasonable degree, detect authenticity through writing, even if you don’t know all the details of the writer. Believe me, I wouldn’t have the patience writing all this stuff if I wasn’t interested in it.
That said, even if I was a soy-eating virgin omega male, the content of my website is very useful and well-researched. All you have to do is take the knowledge contained in this site and apply it to your own life.
Anyway, I’ve learned so much by creating and developing this site. It’s been a significant time sacrifice, for sure, but even if it disappeared tomorrow, the experience has been absolutely worth it.
In one year, I’ve learned a ton about marketing, sales, branding, persuasion, writing, how to grow traffic, how people become famous, and a lot more. I’ve learned a lot more about the topics I discuss since teaching them forces me to understand them better.
I’ve had some ideas to expand this website beyond “just another” Manosphere type blog. Frankly, I believe that the market has massive untapped potential. We’ll see what happens.

My Birthday Wish
Gentlemen, if you want to give Western Mastery a free birthday gift, share some of its articles!
I put a lot of effort into writing high-quality, free content for everyone. The best thing this site could use is exposure.
Help me build my brand and fanbase while I help educate the world. It’s free for both of us. All I need is for you to share the content on this website that you like.
Share it on Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, wherever. Share it with friends that need this type of knowledge in their lives.
It would be a massive fucking help.
That’s all for now. Thanks to everyone who’s read, interacted and shared this website with others. There’s much more on the way, so stay tuned.
