It’s a little—okay, more than a little—shocking to us to realize we’ve been blogging at NineteenTeen for three whole years now. I honestly had no idea we’d persist this long—I was sure we’d run out of topics by now, but they just keep on appearing. Isn't history wonderful?
As you probably know, we use our birthday as an opportunity to ask you, our readers, what topics you’d like to see us cover or what features you’d like to see more (or less) of. So here we go!
What have you enjoyed reading about most over the last year or more, and what hasn’t particularly interested you? We got rather a mixed response to our Young Bluestocking Book Club, and are on the fence about continuing it…is it something you enjoy reading, and should we persevere? Do you want us to continue to occasionally discuss movies or television of possible 19th century interest? Do you want to see more biographies of famous (and not-so-well known) 19th century people? Do you like the Fashion Forecasts? Do you want more guest posts?
While Regina and I remain devoted history geeks, we don’t blog for our own amusement—we blog for our readers. So come on, Dear Readers, let us know what you’d like more of (or less of) at NineteenTeen...and to encourage your thinking processes, all suggestions will be entered in a drawing to win a $25 Borders Books gift card and perhaps another goodie or two (we do have a handful of NineteenTeen fans left). So join us in a virtual bite of cake and sip of finest oolong served in the best Minton china...and happy birthday to us!
P.S. Want to give us a birthday present? We'd love to get up to one hundred followers, so if you've got any historically inclined friends, send them here!
