Outlander Blogs

There are some really great blogs out there dedicated entirely to the Outlander Series. The wonderful thing about these books is that because they are so vast, there is so much to analyze, discuss and praise.

A very active and robust blog that averages about 180 posts a year. Gabaldon herself has been quoted as saying it is “A beautifully done and entertaining blog.” They do not focus only on the book, but also discuss the Starz series as well.

A recent post that I just LOVE is a series of winter pictures of real life locations that served as settings in the series. The photo to the right is of Grandfather Mountain, NC, near where Fraser’s Ridge is supposed to be located. REPOST: Winter pictures.

Another active site full of Outlander discussions, notes and pictures from both the books and the TV series. To me, this site has more of a playful feel to it than the others. It seems to be focused more on entertainment than information. I don’t say that as a criticism, I like the blog very much.

A fairly new blog but don’t let that deter you. Because it is a newer site, it tends to include more modern blogging techniques; such as video clips from the actors of the TV series, podcasts and reviews of each Outlander episode. I really like that she includes information from other bloggers, reviewers and contributors.

Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan

I know I’m not the only Outlander fan that was nearly catatonic with joy when I found out that they were going to create a television series based on the Outlander books. Then, I was worried. I figured they were going to ruin it by trying to make it more “edgy” or something like that. I am so glad that I was wrong. The show has stayed pretty true to the books. Of course there are a few changes, but nothing that takes away from the story.
