Happy 6th Anniversary

Six years ago today we registered the domain stogiereview.com. Its funny to go back and read some of the bullshit we peddled back then or even look at some of our original videos. Who remembers the bed in the background? LOL! I want to take a moment and congratulate Walt, Brian, Mike and Charlie for all their hard work over the years (or months for Charlie). Who knew that five guys, from five different walks of life, could come together under the banner of cigars and create something very special. There are a lot of cigar sites out there now than there were six years ago. There are sites whose stats may be better. There are sites who may have more access to manufacturers than we do. There are sites who may do a better job reviewing cigars or have better quality photos or videos. There are sites who may even be more recognizable than we are. But the one thing I’m proud of is when I log in to the WordPress Dashboard and I see us approaching 40,000 comments on the site. So while others may do an array of things better than we do, I don’t think anyone connects with our audience the way we do and the 40,000 comments proves that.

So the biggest thanks goes out to all of you reading this right now. Whether this is your first visit or you were one of the first 87 in March 2006 or somewhere inbetween…Thank You! This blogging thing has truly been a journey for me personally and without you wouldn’t of been possible. So thank you for six years!
