The Manliness Roundup: Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt Edition
As most readers have seen, I have added a link to sign up for the RSS feed. Many people I speak to in the real world don’t even know what an RSS feed is, let alone wanting to link to mine. I will have to do an entire post on this as I hope all who have blogs do as well. Of course, all RSS feeds are free and it is merely a information “push” from a blog or a news site as they update with new material. Simple enough…
It’s an amazing tool that a lot of users of the internet don’t know about yet – shockingly.
In any event, I discovered Theordore Roosevelt’s autobiography online as public domain and wanted to offer it as a download if you sign up for the RSS feed. I juiced it up a little with good formatting and then put into a pdf format that is searchable. Really cool.
Over time, as I read and write posts on the chapters on this true renaissance man’s book, I will add more and more value to the download by highlighting and commenting in the pdf file. Stay tuned for more lessons from one our greatest Presidents on what it meant to him to be a man and exhibit manliness.
