Welcome new followers! Algy is painting a picture for you πŸ™‚

Algy has had a wonderful couple of weeks, with his adventures trending on Tumblr, articles about him in the local press, his books selling locally to visitors to the area, and lots of interest in his adventures generally. So he is reposting this special GIF – one of his all-time favourites – to welcome all his new followers and thank all his loyal friends. Thank you all very much indeed – Algy sends you all lots of surprisingly fluffy hugs xoxo

Algy is also trying to work on the illustrations for his second book, which is due to be published at the end of November, but he thinks maybe he will have to ask his assistant for some help with that πŸ™‚

Algy has had a truly amazing time on Tumblr this past week, with lots of new followers and all kinds of activity, so he felt in need of some soothing sea therapy to settle his over-excited nerves πŸ™‚

And now that he has calmed down a wee bit, Algy would like to take this opportunity to say a few words…

First of all and most importantly: THANK YOU ALL! Thank you from the bottom of Algy’s heart – thank you followers old and followers new, rebloggers, and all those invisible friends who are not members of Tumblr – Algy knows you are there, even if you are hidden and silent! And if you have joined the merry band of Algy’s followers very recently, Algy offers you A VERY WARM WELCOME! Lots of fluffy hugs to you all xoxoxo

Also – Algy got so excited by all this recent Tumblr activity that he acquired a new Tumblr theme, and tried to tidy up the presentation of his Adventures for viewers on different platforms, on and off Tumblr. He even changed his avatar in a fit of fluffy enthusiasm πŸ™‚ If you visit the home page of adventuresofalgy you should now find better images, cleaner layout, infinite scrolling, more ways to contact Algy, and all kinds of nice things πŸ™‚ There may possibly be a few wee glitches though, as he is still working on customizing the theme, so if you happen to find one, please let him know.

It’s sometimes easy to forget that there is a virtual world outside Tumblr, but Algy is well aware that he has friends and followers who are not Tumblr users. He hopes that it will now be much easier for you non-Tumblr folks to follow his Adventures, and to contact him if you want to. You are all very welcome too, of course πŸ™‚

Have a great new week, everybody – and be sure to get some sea therapy (join Algy if you don’t live near the ocean!) to soothe your troubled nerves if things get a wee bit too hectic πŸ™‚Β  This applies especially to Algy’s Scottish followers, who are likely to have a rather nerve-wracking week ahead…!

Today the Tumblr gods worked some of their amazing magic, and Algy suddenly found that he had a large number of new followers from all around the world. He was utterly astonished and delighted, and so naturally he immediately had to do a special Happy Dance πŸ™‚

Algy wishes all you lovely new followers a very warm and fluffy welcome, and he hopes that you will enjoy his adventures in the West Highlands of Scotland.

And of course Algy also wants to share the Happy Dance with all his kind followers and sweet Tumblr friends who have been following his adventures so far.

So – dear followers, old and new – please stop whatever else you may be doing, and join Algy in this special Happy Dance today :-))

Algy loves you all xoxo
