Welcome to the BeatNic Blog. Here, you'll find the latest e cigarette news, commentary and maybe even a special or two.
With the re-organization of the E-Cig Express website, we decided to rename our old "E-Cig Express Blog" and move it from the Blogger platform to one right here on our website. Rather than move all of the old articles and comments over to a new platform, we decided to leave them in place. You can view the old blog here.
Please feel free to comment on any post you find here. We want to hear from you!

Anyone who knows me will tell you that I am ridiculously obsessive about grammar and spelling. In fact, if I go to a website and it is full of grammatical mistakes or spelling errors, I have to leave. If a website does not care about having well written pages, I simply don't believe they care [...]
