Yes, Jamie dear, what you said – thank you! Since I tend to be in a constant delusional state, I can only partially begin to tell you how completely overwhelmed I have been by the events which have transpired over the last few days. My blog & my first blog post went public last Friday and I never expected the outpouring of support and enthusiasm which I have received since. Never! When I publicly announced the blog on Facebook and Twitter, my thought was that I would be happy if 10 people took a moment of their valuable time to take a look. So, you can imagine my excitement over the more than 3000 views my blog has received since it went public on August 11. And if that wasn’t exciting enough, I must tell you that the comments I have received on the blog plus the comments from the Outlander social media community have been completely humbling and mind boggling. Oh, and that’s not to mention the wonderful emails I have received and new Instagram & Twitter follows. Then to put the cherry on top of all that goodness, Karen Henry over at Outlandish Observations shared my blog with her readers. Let’s just say, I have been so excited that I’ve looked a lot like Murtagh trying to dance a jig. Murtagh & I have a lot in common, you see – we both love Jamie and neither of us can dance! But after looking more closely, I believe Murtagh has a slight advantage over me in the dancing department.
So, if you will allow me, I want to take a moment to let ALL of you know how much I appreciate every single one of you who visited my blog, commented, emailed, followed me on Instagram and Twitter and even shared my blog with others. Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart. This past week has been an awesome ride and it would never have happened without you! I am both humbled and amazed! Thank you all!!!
I also want to let you know, in case you didn’t see the link when visiting the blog, that there is an Outlander North Carolina Facebook group.
This group’s focus is primarily on North Carolina as it relates to the Outlander series of books beginning with Drums of Autumn and/or the STARZ Original TV Series beginning with Season 4. However, while that’s the focus, other Outlander topics (Books 1 through 3 & Seasons 1 through 3) are, of course, welcome as well as any other Outlander related topic of interest. I mean we have to make it through the rest of Droughtlander, right? (Did I just say that word? Where is Dr. I. Fash Yeken when you need him?) In order to do that, we have to talk about the first three books and the previous two seasons plus the upcoming one to do it! If you haven’t joined the group already, head on over there, soldier, and join up! (Pssst! You can find the group by clicking here.)
If you have joined, we are so glad to have you! We want to encourage all members to connect with each other. The group is not my group but OURS together! Don’t be afraid to post, share, comment, etc. We want this to be an engaged, vibrant group who is excited about learning and/or sharing the North Carolina angle of Outlander plus ALL other things Outlander!
Again, thank you with all my heart and welcome to the sometimes crazy world of Outlander North Carolina. I hope it will not disappoint!
