What Happened to The Cigarmy?


Where’d I Go?

Where have I been?  Where is The Cigarmy headed?  Why have there been no recent posts?  Well, the answers are manifold.

Firstly, I’ve had some fairly serious health issues arise.  What began as a semi-routine visit to the doctor for some headaches and vision anomalies turned into a diagnosis of a brain tumor.  Never fear….the type of tumor I have is not malignant.  A little medication and possibly surgery should bring it to a manageable level.  None the less, it continues to consume a great deal of my time.

However, that’s not the main reason for the lack of update here.

So, What IS the Story?

After a great deal of plotting, planning and consternation, my co-host and I decided to consolidate The Cigarmy and Half Ashed into a singular media outlet in October 2014.  All the important historical articles from The Cigarmy have been migrated to the Half Ashed site.  We originally considered flowing in the opposite direction – to use The Cigarmy domain as our point of release.  But, this did not make sense from a technical standpoint.  It is simply easier to migrate written blog posts than audio streams, the forum, and some custom post formats.  All cigar news and reviews going forward will only be posted at halfashed.com.  This process has now been completed – so if you hadn’t previously figured this out head over there and check out the most recent posts.

We believe that this consolidation will create a much lighter work load by eliminating the day-to-day tasks of maintaining an extra website, and make way for more dedication to developing a few new features that have been put on the backburner because there have been two sites to maintain.  This will also give Cigarmy readers a few new fun things right off the bat – notably, the forum.  So, let me invite you to come on over to the new, improved – and singular – media outlet we call The Half Ashed Cigar Podcast!

Thanks for checking in, and I look forward to hearing from you on the other side!
