How Cigar.com was Started
Hello my name is Christian Sapp, I am a college student at CSU Chico and I am in a class called academic writing. For my class we have to write an academic paper analyzing a participatory culture online, when I was given the assignment I thought this would give me a great chance to analyze something I love like cigars. Since I was a part of community it was easy to start analyzing but now I need to find out how cigar.com was started I was wondering if anyone knew how it was started and if not who I could talk to find out this information. Also could anyone give me some details in how the online community was started with the forums, blogs, and e-mail newsletter and why they decided to make an online community instead of just a place where someone could buy a cigar? Thank you for your time.
