What are Heughligans?
Heughligans are fans of Sam Heughan, recently cast as our beloved Jamie Fraser from Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series. Check out the about page for the history of the name.
I hate it when I see something really neat and then I want to show it to someone else later and I have to sift back through hundreds or thousands of posts on facebook or twitter or whatever trying to find it again. So I started trying to collect all the information I was finding, which ended up being a lot as I was editing Sam’s Wikipedia page. But since Wikipedia has very strict rules about what is allowed, I couldn’t put it all there. And if I was going to set up a central repository for myself, I figured I may as well share it so other people could find things too. And it all pretty much snowballed from there.
Basically, I’ve appointed myself Sam’s unofficial librarian so that as the number of fans continue to grow, they have a friendly place to start looking for information and a place to store information they might want to look at again later. I’ll do my best to ferret these things out, but you can also send them to me here and I’ll add them to the appropriate spots.
Social Media Guide
I was getting a bit overwhelmed with all of the various modes of communication available and it seemed others were as well, so I created a basic guide to the various ways to socialize with other Heughligans with some tips on the Twitter and Facebook options for for those who are having trouble navigating the insanity.
What this site is not
- This is not an alternative site to the others set up. It is merely a guide and I don’t want to distract from the other great spaces already created. If you want to chat with other fans visit the Socialize tab above and see all the great options.
- Despite using a blogging platform, I’m not intending to blog here or post news updates. If I want to write about Sam or Outlander I’ll go to one of the many hangouts I’ve already joined.
