Welcome, everyone, to the redesign of Mark’s Daily Apple!
If you watched the video you know the basics already, but here is a more thorough introduction to the new site.
We really did outgrow our old site. Loyal MDA readers wanted more ways to connect with me and the community so I’ve tried to incorporate some elements into the site that help facilitate this.
There are so many things that have been updated! I’ll try to be brief and just touch on some of the more important changes.
[UPDATE: Existing newsletter subscribers will be sent the confirmation email over the course of the entire week. If you are an existing newsletter subscriber and don't want to wait to for the Free Introduction to The Primal Blueprint and want to ensure you get this week's newsletter go ahead and enter your email address Weekly Newsletter Subscribe box in the sidebar and you'll get the confirmation link immediately. Thanks, everyone!]
The long awaited redesign of Mark’s Daily Apple is almost here. Yesterday I tweeted to all my fellow tweeters a screenshot of the redesign (follow me on Twitter for exclusive updates!). Today it’s your turn. Below you’ll find an image of the new and improved Mark’s Daily Apple (click on it for the full size). I’ve only included the one truncated image because I don’t want to give everything away just yet. You’ll have to wait until Monday for the unveiling, a video from yours truly and an introduction to all the new features and changes.
I’d love to hear your first impressions in the comment board. Thanks!
A few weeks ago I proposed to the MDA community that we leverage the growing popularity of Twitter to spread the message and to add an additional way for all of us to connect with another. And connect we have! After I published the post hundreds of people began following me on Twitter and conversing with one another by way of our Primal Community tag – #primal. Just look at some of the “#primal” tweets below.
I want to thank everyone that has been participating. I’ve loved following all of your Primal thoughts and experiences virtually in real time. It has been a joy to see how others are living like Grok.
I’m going to be frank. A quick look around at our general surroundings, whether it’s the flawed studies being parroted by the clueless media or your coworkers rolling their eyes because you didn’t eat the bun, confirms that we Primalists are a rare breed. Bouncing around between all the great blogs that actually get it makes for a bit of an echo chamber; fantastic information abounds, but we can easily forget how radical and extreme we seem to most people. I understand this, and I try to make the Primal Blueprint detailed enough for the nutrition buffs and accessible for the guy who maybe just wants to lose a few pounds. Scaring outsiders away might have been an effective tactic for Grok when resources and game were scarce, but we’re not about that here.
A few months ago I participated in a blog round-up with Gym Junkies in which I described my top 3 favorite exercises.
Well, they’re at it again. This time around they’ve asked bloggers and personal trainers what their #1 tip is for achieving fitness goals. Mine?
Make your easy workouts longer and easier, and your hard workouts shorter and harder.
I elaborate on this in the full-length article: 19 Incredible Tips for Getting the Body You Want.
