Editors_Corner

We at Cigar Coop do not consider ourselves a “blog”. The reason for this is we are an online cigar publication that publishes daily focusing on news and reviews. We also only consider “blogging” to be one aspect here and we feel using the name “blog” we real limits the mission we carry out. However there are “blog” aspects to what we do, thus the “Editor’s Corner” is designed to fill the blog role on our publication. This is a place to write editorials giving thoughts and perspectives related to the cigar industry.

“Editor’s Corner” is published monthly – usually on the first day of the month.
