Celebrating the first anniversary of The Dirty Ashes blog


Wow!!!! A year has gone by quickly. It’s been a great year, in terms of meeting new BOTL/SOTLs, attending some great Herfs, and of course, smoking some fantastic cigars. It really has been a year of fun, laughter and friendship. I have been so privileged to have met lots of great people as well as continue to enjoy the company of long time friends.

I started this blog as a way to keep notes of the cigars that I smoke so I can refer to my notes at a later time. I like to track the evolution of a box of the cigars over the years. Little did I know the blog would get such a great response from the cigar community.

Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to check out my blog. I appreciate the support and comments. I’ve been blessed to have the opportunity to attend a few Herfs and I look forward to attending more Herfs in the coming years. It always amazes me how a bunch of rolled, fermented tobacco can bring people together globally. The cigar community is a strong, loving and generous community that I am proud to be a part of.

As I was reflecting on the past year, I took a look at the blog stats for fun. I was stunned with some of the numbers.

71,954 views in one year

People from 128 countries took the opportunity to check out the blog

227 reviews posted

Top blog entry viewed is the 2012 Cohiba Piramides Extra.

I can’t express how appreciative I am for the support. Hopefully, people continue to enjoy the blog for what it is, which is just a recording of a guy who enjoys cigars. The friendships and experiences are what I have treasured the most.

Thanks again for the support. Looking forward to what the next year holds.
