friends of scotland

Algy leaned back on the sand as the sun dipped lower in the sky and stared at the still blue water. He had been away from Tumblr for a wee while, and was feeling strangely lonely… He missed all his Tumblr friends, and found that life was less interesting when he didn’t see all their wonderful images, so he resolved to make sure that it didn’t happen again :)

Algy sends you all lots of very fluffy hugs, and wishes you all a happy weekend xoxo

I have always fancied the idea of having penpals, being friends with people all around the world so I would genuinely love to hear from anyone who is down to have meaningful chats (because I have a deep rooted hate for small talk), Intense debates or just generally wants to talk and get to know someone from somewhere else. I would love to communicate however, through tumblr, email, iMessage, snapchat, snail mail or a combination of any.

I want to get to know you, hear your life story, your fears, your worries, your dreams, your quirks and anything else that you would care to tell me, I am open to everything.

Preferences: anyone above the age of 15 is cool, I have no preference about your gender, sexuality, religion or anything else, as long as you’re a decent person we will be fine.

The great day has arrived! It is Algy’s 5th Tumblr Birthday.

Algy’s surprisingly fluffy 5th birthday party will start at midday, over on his sideblog @lovefromalgy

It is YOU, Algy’s wonderful Tumblr friends and followers, who have made these five years of Algy’s adventures possible, and YOU who have kept Algy going through good times and bad. Thank you all so very much!

A HUGE THANK YOU to all the thousands of almost-invisible followers who Algy does not really know but who see his posts and leave notes from time to time…

And a VERY SPECIAL HUGE THANK YOU to those hundreds of amazing friends and followers who Algy has come to know and love over the past five years - who frequently “like” Algy’s posts, leave kind comments, and send Algy messages. 

Algy loves you all and sends you all lots of surprisingly fluffy birthday hugs, and hopes that you will be able to join in his birthday celebrations xoxo

To take part in Algy’s birthday party on @lovefromalgy, submit one or more images, or post on your own blog and send Algy a link (your own original work, please). If you post on your own blog, please be sure to let Algy know, as the Tumblr notification system for being mentioned on another blog doesn’t work…

And of course come along to @lovefromalgy and enjoy the fun whenever you can. This very special party is likely to run on into the night here in Scotland (GMT).

Submissions can be made at any time from now until the end of the party. Here’s the link to the Submit form again: again:

To celebrate, Algy is also running a small retrospective of his 5 years of amazing adventures, on his main blog @adventuresofalgy. This was originally planned for just two days, but Algy has now decided to spread it over 5 days - one day for each year :)

Hi! I’m 20 years old and from the United Kingdom. I grew up in the South of England, and have just finished the second year of my Psychology degree in Scotland. I love learning more about Psychology, and am hoping to pursue a career in mental health/clinical psychology. I also enjoy listening to musical soundtracks, cooking, baking, and playing with my pet cats. I’m open-minded and non-judgemental :)

Preferences: Would prefer a fellow university student! From anywhere with any gender identity :)

Algy has been surprised and very touched by the wonderful “Welcome back!” which he has received in the past 24 hours from so many of his kind Tumblr friends. He had no idea that his absence would be noticed by so many people – and he is very sorry that he was away for so long. Algy may not be able to thank each one of you personally, so please accept some of these pretty flowers with his heartfelt thanks, and of course lots of fluffy hugs for you all xoxoxo

Algy is so happy to be back :)))

[In fact, Algy’s assistant’s computing facilities are not yet fully restored, but with luck everything should return to normal very soon now.]

Be of service. Whether you make yourself available to a friend or co-worker, or you make time every month to do volunteer work, there is nothing that harvests more of a feeling of empowerment than being of service to someone in need. ❞
