The Secret of Our Success


Starting a blog at any time can be daunting, your first is even more so.  Norma D and her minion only started on Twitter in mid-October and then started this site, less than 7 days ago.  The goal was to have fun.  Chief and Only High Priestess, Norma D., and her Primary Handmaiden, have been totally overwhelmed and honored by the response.   In less than 7 days the site has had over 1200 views with some very kind remarks along the way.  Considering Norma D was also preparing for her close up with Mr. DeMille, and had many appointments for mani-pedis, facials, rehearsals, script reviews (for a silent film) and other distractions, this is phenominal.


In addition, neither she nor her minion know a damn thing about blogging or linking or whatever the hell else one needs to know about to be successful building a following.


Norma D was concerned about offending someone with her sarcasm and slightly risqué approach to the CoH dogma and her Primary Handmaiden had to talk her down from the ledge several times.


Hovering over their head was the terror of Himself finding the site and being royally pissed!  (They are expecting the cease and desist order at any time)


But nothing happened except what they hoped would.  Like minded crazies who adore all that is Sam, would find a place of acceptance, learn to speak in a common language and just have some darn good fun!   So far that is what has happened.   That is how they (Norma D. & her Handmaiden) defined success.



One of the comments said, “You know us! “  One asked for on-line courses.  Most just “laughed so hard they peed” (aka Twitter Incontinency).  We even got linked to the Columbia Health site.  They are looking for volunteers from our “Church”.  Someone is going to have a surprise when they check into our site!



A recent discussion about the used kilt section mentioned in 100k, now wants to include cloning from the DNA on the kilts.  Some wanted their own Sam, with and without verbal skills. Some wanted only certain phrases i.e. “I thought my heart would burrrrst!”  or “It doesna matter where you come from, you’re herrrre, Claire.”  “I said I was a virrrrgin, not a monk.  If I need help, I’ll ask.”    Some wanted other things like, “You’rrre awesome, my love!” or “I will love you forrrrever!”  We are not sure if they really want a clone.   Perhaps a puppet or doll with a string you can pull so it talks and a button to push for other things one might want it to do would suffice.   They also suggested a “Coins for Clones” fundraiser.



Another thread of conversation for the membership has been around road trips. Here’s our initial transportation offering:



@beulahcrusoe offered to take her car:


However upon realizing we all suffer from Twitter Incontinence, she offered an alternative that was more appropriate, and less conspicuous.



Many are planning to go to North Carolina for season 5 filming.  Residents are eagerly looking forward to our visit.



Others are preparing their prosthetics to go to San Diego Comic Con dressed as blind old women for easier access to the front row.



Obviously, a need has been filled and Norma D has a full time job!  The website has purchased her a car.


 In addition we have added new terms to our common language with more to come.



On behalf of all who embrace the doctrines of the Church of Heughanology, we thank you for your overwhelming support.   It isn’t 100k, but certainly 100 times what was expected.   We will continue to meet the needs of our members.  Thank you all!!

    1. Rachel, we have a steering (pardon the pun) committee to begin plans for the NC trip during season 5 OL filming. Even though it is 4.5 years in advance, we will need your help and expertise. There is a lot to consider so we need many talents on the committee to make our trip efficient and edifying. Keep watching here, as our Sam says with no damn surprise in view, for further updates. Off to my diction coach. Must be ready for that silent film close up! Fondly, Norma D.


    1. We are connected to those assisting with the Affordable Healthcare Act and they assured us that bursting a gut, heart, or bladder, is covered by all insurances if caused by activities related to Himself or OL Twitterdom activities. Wellness is one of our cherished pillars in the CoH. Off to the hairdresser to prep for my close up. Fondly Norma D


    1. Dear B, home is where the heart is. I am glad you are comfortable with all that is Sam Heughan. We will continue the journey together. Love your site! Must get a Botox injection for my close up. Fondly, Norma D


    1. My goal is to improve the discourse through creativity and education on all that is Sam Heughan. As COHP, I embrace the true believer and all they bring to our table. On my way to a costume fitting for the close up. Lots to see on the site. Dig in! Fondly, Norma D


    1. Dear Lil, A common language unites us in our goal to elevate the discourse about Himself to the next level. It is pleasing that you have broadened your vocabulary today! After my massage, I will come back to add more to our site. Study. Study. Study. Fondly, Norma D
