The Peaceful Pub came into existence in 2004. It began with five members and by the end of the year we counted our blessings for the twenty additional poets and writers who had joined together at the Pub’s fireside. We celebrated every new member and every new post. It was a great source of joy, camaraderie and some pretty awesome poetry and prose. In May of 2005, there was a ‘great disaster’ and suddenly all of our efforts were wiped out by a ‘massive server hack’.
Pubsters are a hardy bunch and the group became a family. They/we did not quit. In fact,
The Pub flourished in spite of the ever-changing platform. As years accumulated so did our membership. It sky rocketed; 2007-2011was our heyday. Even when Facebook began the death knell for forums, we maintained almost a thousand members, until this, our thirteenth year, when the decision was made that enough is enough.
Don’t forget, Pubsters are a family and they are not quitters. The result is a new blog. It is a multi-faceted blog authored by a group of loyal and talented Pubsters. I hope you will stop by to imbibe of the literary libations and to offer your support.
