THANK YOU STARZ

Wolfe Tales

Note to STARZ

First – I apologize. This is long again but it’s what I felt I needed to say.

I have made no secret of my thoughts about this show and the fandom surrounding it. Most of my blog posts have been observations about the Outlander fandom as it is the first and pretty much only fandom I’m really involved with. This fandom can and does do EPIC shit! The money that has been raised for extremely worthy charities, the hundreds of people that have gotten healthier thanks not only to Sam and his Peak Challenge in conjunction with Bear Strength – but the care and support of the fans for each other to strive to reach their fitness goals, support each other in times of trial, rejoice with each other in triumph. This is an amazing group of people and I feel blessed to be part of it – most of…

Star Wars and the One Year Anniversary of The Church of Heughanology

May the Outlander, Star Wars Force Be With You. A wee bit of humor for your day. Enjoy!

The Church of Heughanology

***Best if viewed on PC

It has been one year since we opened The Church of Heughanology. It has been a journey of epic proportions.   As of yesterday, we have had 33,000 + hits on this site from over 23 countries.   In honor of this milestone in the Church, we have a presentation that features all of the new skills our COHP, the Great and Powerful Norma D, has learned over the past year.   (Remember, she was as green as a dead fish, when she started.)  

I want to say a special thanks to Tammy B. and Stacey M. for jumping to my rescue when I panicked on this posting!   I get by with a little help from my friends.

With the great interest in Star Wars and Outlander, merging the two seemed to be a great idea.  I hope you agree.

The story opens with Princess Claire Leia…

January Outlander Twitter Parties

Golden Globes Countdown Clock: http://www.timeanddate.com/countdown/generic?p0=137&iso=20160110T16&msg=Golden%20Globe%20awards-%20starting%20with%20Red%20Carpet%20Event

It’s a verra exciting time to be an Outlander fan with all the awards Outlander could win in January, but it’s a verra nervous time too, right?

What can we do with all the nervous energy? How about some Twitter parties?

The evenings of the award shows while we’re awaiting the announcements, let’s tweet photos, quotes, screenshots, links to articles and good reviews, and just plain squee. I can’t wait to tweet about corn grinding, barbecues, left vs right hands, wool waulking and lots of photos of our gorgeous cast. Sharing the Outlander love – it’s what we do.

The awards kick off with People’s Choice on January 6 at 9 pm Eastern/8 pm Central on CBS. Last year, there was online coverage of the red carpet. We’ll add the time and URL when more information is available.

On January 6, starting with the red carpet coverage online, let’s tweet using #OutlanderPCA2016. As always, a valid tweet for trending is at least two words in addition to the hash-tag, plus a photo if you’d like. Try to make your tweets interesting and informative. If we trend and people are curious enough to click on the hash-tag, we want to make sure they’re intrigued enough to seek Outlander out.

WHEN Outlander, Sam and Cait win, the hash-tag is #WinnerWinnerHaggisDinner. Tweet it a couple of times (with a couple of words and a photo) at the time of the announcement and then let it disappear. We trended it last year.

The Golden Globes are on January 10 from 8-11 pm Eastern on NBC. Let’s save all of our great tweets from the People’s Choice Awards for a repeat performance with the hash-tag #KiltedGlobes. (Intriguing, no?) Once again, we start with any red carpet coverage and celebrate wins with #WinnerWinnerHaggisDinner.

PLEASE don’t use the hash-tags on Twitter (outside of memes and TwitLongers) before the event. (That can prevent a trend.)

Outlander Ambassadors will be offering prizes for each hash-tag we manage to trend.

We have lots to SQUEEE about this year!

#FranceNeedsOutlander Twitter Party Report

"A Travers Les Pierres", le Blog d'Outlander France

#FranceNeedsOutlander Twitter Party

December 7th 2015

 Cliquez ici pour la version française

Preparation

The #FranceNeedsOutlander twitter campaign was targeted to French and Belgian TV channels to make them aware of the high level of interest in the Outlander TV series, in hopes that one of the channels would quickly acquire broadcasting rights. The series is already on TV screens in most Western countries, with a French language version that began airing in Switzerland in mid-November, in addition to the highly anticipated release announced for January 2016 in French-speaking Canada.

Our campaign was initially scheduled on November 16th and we began promoting it on this blog on the 10th. Due to the events in Paris on November 13th, it was rescheduled for December 7th. The campaign was designed in French and in English right from the start, as we were counting on the support…

Let’s hit the tape sprinting and show Cait, Sam and the rest of the cast that we are solidly behind them.

Multi-Tab Voting for #OutlanderPCA2016

This is the most efficient way we’ve found to vote from a computer. Rotating among 3 categories, you’re unlikely to hit speeds that could result in getting your IP banned from voting, but be careful. If you feel like you’re turning into a bot, you might be voting like one. Take a short break occasionally, OK?

Start by copying this link: http://vote.peopleschoice.com/#!/home/all/77/2

Paste it into 5-10 tabs. (Google Chrome browser shown here.)

Screen Shot 2015-10-13 at 8.57.57 AM

Click on Outlander, then on “Cast Votes” and go to the next tab. Repeat until you’ve voted Outlander in each tab.

Screen Shot 2015-10-13 at 8.59.29 AM

Return to your first tab and you’ll see that the site has most graciously advanced to Sam’s category. Click on Sam Heughan and “Cast Votes.” Move on to each of your tabs in turn.

Screen Shot 2015-10-13 at 9.01.10 AM

Return to your first tab and you’ll see Cait’s category. This time, click Caitriona Balfe, “Cast Votes” and close each tab after voting.

Screen Shot 2015-10-13 at 9.02.34 AM

Open 5-10 more tabs and repeat, repeat, repeat. I suggest listening to the Outlander soundtracks for inspiration.

Need more inspiration? Imagine what this will look like next year:
