My blog is two years old!



Today is the two-year anniversary of the launch of Outlandish Observations! I started this blog for two reasons: to learn about blogging, and to provide a central repository of OUTLANDER-related news and information, particularly for people who don't visit the larger fan-sites like LOL and Compuserve. And this blog has succeeded far beyond anything I could have imagined two years ago.

I am still having a lot of fun with it. I've learned a lot about blogging, and I'm very, very gratified by all the kind comments I've received from those of you who visit here. I'm delighted that the information I post here has been useful to so many people!

The number of visitors to this site keeps growing steadily, which is also very gratifying! (In the past month, it's averaged almost 240 visitors per day.) And I was thrilled to see in recent days that the Outlandish Observations page on Facebook now has more than 200 followers!

In celebration of this milestone, I've set up a Linky list. Please leave a link here if you have a blog or web site -- whether it's related to OUTLANDER or not!

THANK YOU ALL!!

Happy 2nd Blog Birthday, Karen! I enjoy checking your blog daily for Outlander news...whether it's regarding new books, Outlander Flair or MIK.
Thanks for your efforts to keep us informed.

Happy Anniversary Karen! I am new to Outlander and having great fun checking out the Outlander websites. Your blog was my very first stop and it is bookmarked on my home and work computer. So thanks for what you do. We all enjoy it.

PS: On my first visit I saw your posting on the Highland Games on Grandfather Mtn. My DH and I were on our way to Valle Cruces that same weekend and ended up spending two days at the games where I discovered my Scottish roots. But I digress! Appreciate all you do.

Congratulations Sir! =) This kind of event is an inspiration for a lot of bloggers around the blogosphere.

Karen Henry said...

John - well, it's my blog's birthday, not mine, but thanks!

Deej - actually, I'm not a "Sir", but thanks anyway. I hope you're right.
