CigarScore: Year One By the Numbers

5 days ago, on Friday the 13th, CigarScore turned 1 year old! Yep, after meeting with some business advisers, I decided to buy the domain (along with several others for IP protection), on December 13, 2018.

And what a year it has been! Whether you're one of our earliest users or you've just now heard about us through the CigarScore Awards, I wanted to share some milestones with you.
