On February 15th, 2015 The Society of Bearded Gentlemen (BeardedGents.com) turned 6 years old. The membership is now nearing 5500 beardies and Whiskerinas, and that’s a lot of beard love there! The site has been free for the past 6 years, which has been a serious strain on my disability income. I’ve thought about making it a pay site, but always talked myself out of it.
In order to make improvements to the site, it takes money; Money I don’t have. On February 15th of this year, The Society became a pay site and it’s cost is $19.95 USD per year. A new Chat Program has been added which offers Cam and Audio, File Sharing, and Games too. The price is minimal I think in comparison to other sites, but offers a lot in the way of information, advice, product reviews, beard competition listings, product listings, and Beard Group listings Worldwide.
The front page has been slightly remodeled to make it more member friendly and to make the Forum, Blogs, and Groups more easily reachable. We started in 2009 and have made our first 6 years with hopes of many more years serving the Bearded Community.
