We're officially 1 year old and what a year it's been! Kevin McKidd Online went from one mini-site featuring news and articles on Kevin to a full-blown fan site, thanks to our viewers and Kevin's interaction! When we started out, it was to offer others background information on Kevin—the sort of insightful biography and film articles that took us wading through hundreds of different sources to pull together. We tried to weed out all the critiques and get to the nitty-gritty, the real articles about Kevin, ones with substance and credibility. We did the dirty work so that others in future wouldn't have to. We went from 4 pages of information and a few photos to needing full section menus and a gallery hub to contain it all. We didn't start with a fan forum, but we received so many positive emails that we built it and you came; a chat room soon followed. We branched out from this site to three or four different mediums, taking on Myspace, Facebook, Youtube, and Zoopy videos as well. Thank you to the volunteers who participate or lend their expertise at all these sites; you're amazing. Without using ads and special gimmicks to increase traffic to the site, KMK Online quickly ranked third on Kevin-related Google searches and is linked on IMDB. Wow. We're proud of that since we aren't after making money or distracting you with a lot of flash—we're simply here to promote Kevin and give his fans another place to call home. Kevin's popularity keeps advancing and we're so excited to help spread the word about how cool he is. And he definitely is. But you already know that; it's what keeps you coming back to visit. He's the kind of guy that inspires you to try acting or to petition big networks to keep him on television or even to ask us for a Kevin-centric tour of Scotland in the future. If there's anything you, the fans, have taught me personally this year, it's that anything is possible…. Thank you for that and for sticking around. We're going to keep getting better, keep taking fan suggestions, keep growing…. If we can do so much in the 1st year, imagine the possibilities in our 2nd.
Sincerely, Kat, Admin of Kevin McKidd Online
