Welcome to our 100th blog post! In just four months, Best Cigar Blog’s audience has grown from a handful of cigar nuts to hundreds of aficionados from around the web. We thank you for your continued support. We’ve got a lot of great content in store for you during the rest of the year, including behind the scenes stories, new product reviews and rumors and our signature pull-no-punches commentary on cigar industry news and events.
It just so happens our centennial celebration coincides with the official kick-off of this years’ IPCPR Trade Show down in New Orleans. Everyone who’s anyone in the cigar industry is down in the Big Easy right now getting their morning smoke on and beginning the great schmooze-a-thon that is the IPCPR. Our CEO, along with our entire Buying Department, are on-site cutting deals as we speak. We’ll be checking in with them throughout the day and updating our Facebook and Twitter pages with the latest. If you haven’t yet, please check out our list of new cigars being released, which we’ll also be adding to throughout the day as new stogies get announced.
We’d also like to direct you to our fellow bloggers who are at the IPCPR, in particular The Stogie Guys started blogging live at 6 am and we’re glued to their coverage. The Smoking Hot Cigar chick has a phone photo stream going live, while Cigar Reader has a reporter on the floor, none other than Barry Stein of “A Cigar Smoker’s Journal“. Finally, you can’t go wrong following the #IPCPR hashtag on Twitter.
Check out the 2010 IPCPR brochure for an idea of what to expect, and watch this space for more updates coming soon!
