A Heartfelt Thanks to Karen Henry and OUTLANDISH OBSERVATIONS
By Janis HinesOur OUTLANDER blog inspiration has just celebrated its 7th Anniversary.
As fellow bloggers (now), we have often wondered what it was like to be blogging about all things OUTLANDER before the show was even a concept and before the recent books were published -
no Sam Heughan face to stick on Jamie Fraser as we wrote our daily posts, no MOBY material to tell us what Claire was up to this time (no spoilers!).
One of the top things on our OUTLANDER bucket list was, at some point, to ask for an interview with Karen Henry. Fortunately for all of us, she answered the very same questions that we wanted to ask in the announcement she posted on of the 7th anniversary of Outlandish Observations (see below).
If it were not for the early original blogs like hers, we may not have known all the details of Diana Gabaldon's insights, ideas, and appearances, or about the show's much-anticipated cast and production information. It makes us wonder if, without people like Karen, the popularity of OUTLANDER would be what it is today, and if others like us would have been inspired to create our own blogs about OUTLANDER.
And what about the next 7 years? If we're lucky, we'll be in our 7th season of the Starz original series, book 9 will have been read at least 3 times by all of us crazy fans and we'll all be discussing what's to come in book 10. A lot.
Congratulations Karen. You are an inspiration to us all. Truly!
