It's So Classic Blog Party: KICKOFF

Greetings to you, Fellow Rebels!

It is a day of celebration - Rebellious Writing is now officially 2 years old!

It is so crazy that two years ago, one girl put out a simple blog post that sparked an entire movement. As we have grown these two years, we have grown more and more in love with classics. And so, for this second anniversary, we are throwing an entire party devoted to these classics!

But first, there is one question to answer: What is a classic?

At the basic level, a classic is book that has not gone out of print since it was first published. It has elements that are timeless. They are often used as models for good literature....and as required readings for school, LOL.

To kick off this party, we're giving you guys an original tag!

It's So Classic Tag


1. Link your post to Rebellious Writing (
2. Answer the questions
3. Tag at least 5 bloggers.

  1. What is one classic that hasn’t been made into a movie yet, but really needs to?
  2. What draws you to classics?
  3. What is an underrated classic?
  4. What is one classic that you didn’t expect to love, but ended up loving anyway?
  5. What is your most favorite and least favorite classics?
  6. What is your favorite character from a classic? Or if that is too hard, one is your favorite classic character trope (e.g. strong and silent, quiet sidekick, etc.)
  7. What’s a popular classic that you felt wasn’t actually that great?
  8. Who is your favorite classic author?
  9. In your opinion, what makes a classic a classic?
  10. Relating to newer books, what attributes does a book need to have in order to be worthy of the title “classic”?

In addition to the tag, we'd love for you all to do your own posts relating to classics! What is your favorite classic book? What are some lessons that you've learned from classics? Or, give us your opinions about classics!

To make things easier for us, please link your posts to the comment section of this kickoff post. We will then link everyone's posts at the end of the party in another post. 

We look forward to seeing your posts!
