I want to tell you about a pretty cool new website today. If you’ve been hanging around the health and fitness website industry for a while now, you might remember HealthRanker, a health news social voting site, where popular articles are voted to prominence and end up on page 1. Well, HealthRanker was bought and destroyed a year or so ago, my attempts to make a clone called FitWire failed miserable, and now there is a new player on the scene.

Swole vs. Mens Health, Live Strong, and Diets in Review: No Contest
As you can see from the graph, I can’t do everything myself. Sites with multiple authors get more traffic, get ranked quicker, and ultimately become more prominent in the highly competitive health-website niche.
Wanted: guest bloggers, guest posters, guest authors!
Attention everyone! I am looking for guest bloggers you can write intelligent content to post on Project Swole!
Promote yourself and your website to 10,000 unique readers a day, network with other bloggers within the industry, collect potent backlinks to your own online content for SEO benefits.
Write a Guest Post!
Who Should Submit Content?
Anyone really, but I would especially like to hear from people with experience in the industry:
- experienced coaches
- those who specialize in any sport, equipment, or technique
- book authors
- dietary supplement innovators
- personal trainers who have a clue
I would also like to hear from anyone who owns a sports, health, or fitness blog. If you can contribute something, anything, useful to Project Swole readers, I want to hear from you! Got it?
I’m not 100% sure where I’m going with this, but Project Swole is now on Facebook with a very basic Facebook Page. Soon I’ll get around to pimping it out and I’m currently learning a bunch of different ways to post to it. To become a fan, go ahead and click on this link: Project Swole on Facebook.
The new design will have an easy-to-find Facebook badge so if you forget to join, there will be ample opportunities at a later date.
In the meantime, let me know how best I can utilize the new Facebook Page. I have some ideas, but would like to hear from you all as well.
It is a milestone for Project Swole! This is the very first Project Swole video anywhere. Unfortunately I outsourced it to someone in India and it just might be the very worst video I have ever seen in my life. Go ahead and watch it but I don’t blame you if you hit ‘STOP’ after just 10 seconds.
Let’s hope the next Project Swole video at least has music or a voice over. Yikes!
