Love These Stats!

Posted on Tuesday, August 26, 2014 in World of CO

General Cigar is compiling blog stats for potential banner ads next year and I figured I’d share the cool numbers with you guys too while I’m looking at them! I don’t watch them much, I know they go up every year but I really don’t care exactly how much, it is what it is. But it had been quite a while since I did, and I was impressed lol!

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge…NOT

Posted on Sunday, August 17, 2014 in World of CO

Untitled-3I’ve seen a TON of videos this week of people dumping water on their heads. So far no donations or true ice buckets other than celebrities on TV or big internet videos like Bill Gates. Frankly unless you are someone important, your video doesn’t matter (me included of course). Only donations do. So here’s my challenge video. Donate and post that instead. And for everyone that’s does a lame-ass pail of water and says it’s ice…you have to do it over twice the right way now! ;)

Summer Fun Fundraiser THANK YOU!

Posted on Friday, August 1, 2014 in World of CO

THANK YOU so much to all the 234 people that contributed a grand total of $6020 to my project and to all the very cool site sponsors that are donating the prizes to those I drew from the contributor list!

After shipping expenses, fees and tax that put a nice $4.5k dent in the bike cost! I have 50 items to give away and used random.org to go through the list of separate $20 contributions to pick the names. It took quite a while because of the duplicates that kept coming up but it’s done and below you will find the winner’s names! I just did first name last initial for privacy’s sake. I don’t believe we had any duplicates in that format so if you see your info it’s probably you :) As promised I will be emailing each person (the email you had on file with PayPal so check it!!) in order, with the list of what’s still available so everyone can choose what they like, give me shipping info and out it goes! For those that were selected multiple times, you will see a multiplier by your name, so you can choose multiple items when it’s your turn. (more…)

TwoWheelObsession.com Plug

Posted on Monday, July 21, 2014 in World of CO

twowheelobsessionFor those interested, my latest new project has just launched :) TwoWheelObsession.com is the culmination of many experiments, trials & errors and ideas that I have run through over the years. It’s going to be a very fun site to watch grow for I hope both myself and my viewers! I have quite a list of big plans for it taking things in a few branching directions, so here’s my one and only plug for it to you!

Yes I’ll be tying other things in as well such as cigars & photography so you might see a cross post or mention every now and again, but I promise it will always be relevant.

It’s going to feature motovlogs (video from the riders perspective) with exceptional quality. Tips, tricks, how-to’s and of course lots of off-topic discussions, for those that missed HLO ;) I’ll be taking you around the Tampa Bay area on some tours, visiting some stops including cigar lounges now and again, plus much, much more. I’m also gearing it to be a hub for the existing motovlogging community, so anyone will be able to find some new exciting channels to watch as well.

A huge THANK YOU to those that have contributed so far to the bike fund, yes there are 10 days left for the drive but I couldn’t pass up a fantastic deal and rebates on the bike, so I had to strike early. As it stands it’s going to be garaged for the next week anyway, as that pressing need threw my timetables all off, and all the other gear I ordered for the project hasn’t arrived quite yet. Now I REALLY look forward to sending out a ton of goodies in a little over a week!

I worked all night getting the new site up and ready, editing the first few videos, fleshing out more plans and ideas…I’m excited, it’s going to be a very fun ride (pun intended)!

Easier To Find Informational Posts

Posted on Tuesday, July 15, 2014 in World of CO

Untitled-1A viewer tonight said it was difficult to find the tips, tricks, how-to’s and other such stuff here so I made it easier. I added a new category, put all the press releases off by themselves and put all the info posts in it’s own section. Now all you need to do is click the category down on the left, or send it to someone that could benefit.

Cigar Oasis Promo Vids Are Up!

Posted on Tuesday, July 8, 2014 in World of CO

Untitled-1I was watching for the new website, but didn’t notice that Cigar Oasis had already put up the new product and company promo vids I made for them, on their YouTube channel! For those wondering and asking, these have nothing to do with me personally or CigarObsession. Everything was scripted, just a straight gig. Check them out here: https://www.youtube.com/user/CigarOasisMedia/videos
