From Jenny Chapman:here - and another feature due in this week's Oban Times.
And to top it all, on Monday Algy received this message from Tumblr:
"Your blog is trending! adventuresofalgy has been featured as a Trending Blog on Tumblr! Over the next few days, millions of people will be introduced to you and your blog around the site and in our mobile apps. Congrats!"
The Adventures of Algy - here - has been running on Tumblr since early 2012, and has gradually acquired a substantial following from all around the world. Building a following is usually a very slow and laborious business, but being featured as an officially trending Tumblr blog means thousands of new followers for Algy in the space of just a few days. However, so far as I know, the fact that Algy's blog is trending on the New York-based Tumblr this week is not connected with his increasing local exposure - it's just a happy coincidence.
But Algy is not bothered by all this attention. He is content just to perch on a rock or the crossbar of the foghorn's structure and watch the sea, while his assistant does all the work.
As before, all sales at the book signing event go through the lighthouse till in the usual way, so that the Ardnamurchan Lighthouse Trust can make a profit from the event.
