I’ve been down in the dumps lately and I wish I could blame it on the weather. But I can’t. It’s me. I’ve let a lot of threads slip through my fingers. I still hold a pretty good sized hank for all you knitters out there, but it’s been reduced in size and it’s nobody’s fault but my own.
Most right now some will guess it’s that the business is getting smaller. You’re wrong. I haven’t had such a good run in ages. Plus it’s really none of your business save for the fact that this is one cigar broker who is going to stir things up. It’s fixable.
As you know I have one of the more unusual blogs that I post most days that goes by the name of https://irvcigarbroker.wordpress.com/. I write and post something every day. Sure, I’ve missed a few, but after writing close to 800 individual articles, I figure I can take a day off now and then. Plus, I get my fill of cigars. So to take a step back is allowed.
Which brings me to the positive growth news here. Months ago my son and I created a website https://www.irvcigarbroker.com/. I tried to put as much pastrami on the rye as I could and I found that I had just created another job for myself. So over time, I let it just sit there and go stale
When I first got into writing I had to be fully committed. I mean typewriter, paper, carbons, mailers, stamps, you name it. Today, anyone can get on WordPress and you’re perceived as another John Updike, or Charles Adams, or a seasoned journalist, or a magazine editor, or egads – a cigar expert. It takes very little to create the appearance of being professional and with all the new electronic gadgets that are available, the personal computer is putting recording studios and printers out of business.
So I figured, ah fuck it. Everyone is doing it. So why not give it another roll in the hay.
Well, I’m back on the bandwagon with the site, and I’m going to make it as simple as possible and as entertaining as I can. Right now it’s new, I just put it online with what current information I feel is important.
Click on it. And don’t think it’s going to stay as pedestrian as it appears right now. I have to get the wheels turning and the word out. Facebook has soured on me. Will I continue to post my blog https://www.facebook.com/IrvCigarBrokerPage/ Of course? But I, a glump of fresh bread dough with plenty of yeast in it, will expand. I will no longer depend on FB. Nor will I be in the dumps.
Why? Well, If I wanted to be policed I’d go to Korea or China – or Illinois. Big Brother is watching and you do not have complete control over what you can do on that media outlet.
My site will be informational, but I’m going to have to tweak it until I get it right just like I did with the blog. Who wants to read the same old shit 1000 times. Not I. So with all the gusto of a frothy pilsner, I’m going to leave you with a high that you will want to share with others.
It’ll have information you cannot find on the other sites. Why? Because I’m writing it.
God, how I love the act of creation and the ability to share that with you without restrictions.
Love you all. Peace and love. Peace and love.
