I’m really into beards. But you may have guessed that if you’ve explored this developing and expanding site. I like to have one most of the time, see pictures of them and write about them.

There was a time when I was embarrassed to talk about facial hair, but it’s nothing to be ashamed of. A good beard — stubble, well-groomed or wild — is a sign of manhood, a fashion accessory and for some, a bit of a fetish thing. For me? All three, I guess.

My name is Eric Parker, and writing for the Internet is both my job and my hobby. So it only makes sense that I’d create a website with advice and comments about being bearded.

Even better than that, however, I’ve created two sites on the topic. Here at Better Beard, Better Life, I provide advice and commentary that promotes the bearded lifestyle. On my other beard site, Best Beard Ever, I offer product reviews about things that can help you have a better beard. From conditioners to stubble trimmers and mustache wax, I cover (or eventually will cover) just about every kind of product related to facial hair.

I also write and maintain a few other websites that relate to my other interests. Among them are:

  • Clear Your Eyes, a site about computer vision syndrome, low power reading glasses and other things related to spending hours at the computer screen
  • Minimalist Living Today, a site about having a better life when you live simply and frugally
  • Gay Fort Worth, an older site that’s all about gay and lesbian issues in Tarrant County, Texas and the surrounding area
  • Conspiracy Of Good and Advice Without Hype, two sites that offer products reviews and advice on topics of all sorts — whatever happens to be on my mind that I think could be useful to someone

I want to be clear: I think beards are great, and you should have one. Experiment. Try a short one, then a longer one. Try a curly ’stache and a big goatee. Do whatever you want. No one should try to discourage you from fully exploring whatever you want to do — and grow.

Want to contact me to say “right on!” or comment about something you see on this or another of my sites? Email me at eric@conspiracyofgood.com.

If you say something nice, I’ll respond. If you don’t, I might cry, get mad or go to bed early. And I might not.
