In addition to this blog, I write the Tampa Cigar Examiner column on Examiner.com. In that column I report on local Tampa Bay related cigar news and I also publish cigar reviews.
Before my Examiner column, I had often used the online name “cigarsmokingman” on numerous forums and other online communities.
I chose the screen name “cigarsmokingman” as an homage to one of my favorite TV villains, the “Cigarette Smoking Man or CSM” from The X-Files.
My plan for this website is to consolidate my interests in cigars, coffee and cocktails. I’ll have full control over my content and the freedom to report on news and products that may not have a local ‘angle’ to them.
I hope you enjoy reading my content and please feel free to leave comments. I would appreciate your feedback.
