10 years ago today, The Classic Club Blog was born!
Adam, Allie, Heather, Jillian, Melissa and Sarah were our foundation moderators, who guided us through the first six years with LOTS of fabulous ideas, events and enthusiasm. All designed to get us excited about reading classics together.
Four years ago, The Classics Club experienced a changing of the guard.
Brona, Deb, Kay and Margaret arrived with a new bout of enthusiasm, refreshing the blog and working behind the scenes to update member and review information. And suddenly, here we are with 10 years of blogging about classics behind us!
During that 10 years, bloggers have also come and gone. That’s life in this blogging world. We love that after 10 years, new members are still finding their way to us and that older members continue to circle around as their schedules permit.
So what does the future hold for us at The Classics Club?
In these uncertain times, it can be hard to think about anything much beyond our immediate concerns. But that is why we are readers. Books bring us solace and comfort during trying times. Classic books, in particular, can help us to understand our time and place in history and give us a perspective other than our own. They help remind us that nothing about human nature is new or hasn’t been experienced before.
We will stay here at The Classics Club as long as the rest of you want to keep reading classics with us.
To celebrate our 10 years of blogging about Classics, we want to know more about YOU. New members and old.
