As anyone who peruses blogs and web sites and Facebook pages devoted to the British actor Richard Armitage knows, there is a community of faithful fans who are admiring of his artistic projects. I feel privileged to have met and become friends with many wonderful ladies around the globe in the last eight months as we swap stories about our first introductions to RA’s character portrayals, we share favorite RA character and portrait pictures and videos about RA characters and stories, and we swoon when the next set of heart stopping RA pictures or RA audio–or both!–are released. Can you say Project Magazine photoshoot portraits of Richard Armitage [(1) right)]? *Swoon* *Thud!* Or, how about RA singing the Misty Mountain Cold song on The Hobbit Movie Announcement Trailer? Sighhhhhh!
And if we didn’t think it could get any bettah? It just did! Because for one week–March 12-18, 2012–Richard Armitage fans and admirers from around the globe will join together in a momentous FANtastical event called:
That’s right! FanstRAvaganza 3 will bring together about eight core/anchor bloggers (listed in the side bar at right under FanstRAvaganza 3)–An RA viewer’s perspective from 33o00 of the equator, bccmee’s Richard Armitage Vids & Graphics, CDoart, Confessions of a Watcher, Me + Richard Armitage, RAFrenzy, Richard Armitage Fan Blog, and The Squeee–creating RA fun posts daily during that week focusing on a few common themes–with dozens of other “tag team” bloggers shooting off from them and creating their own RA themed posts as well that week. Bloggers will publicize and have links to each other for other RA fans’ convenience. I am thrilled to say that I will be one of the tag team bloggers for FanstRAvaganza 3!
The goal is to have an RA community wide event that will give fans one stop shopping for Richard Armitage related essays and activities. And, it will allow all of us to learn more about each other–perhaps finding that gem of a blog that we had not visited yet.
To help facilitate and coordinate the week long FantRAvaganza 3 event, kudos go to the FanstRAvaganza 3 Planning Committee. For more about FanstRAvaganza 3, please visit one of the anchor/core blogs at

Thanks to RANet for the Project Magazine portrait shot of Richard Armitage (cropped and zoomed) found at http://www.richardarmitagenet.com/images/gallery/Richard/Promos/ProjectMagJuly2011/album/slides/MattHolyoak-07.html
Thanks to Bccmee for her wonderful FanstRAvaganza 3 graphics. Here is a link to her blog at http://fanvideos.wordpress.com/ I know six logo examples may seem a bit much for me to include here, but Bccmee made such beautiful FanstRAvaganza 3 logos for a variety of RA character portrayals that it is hard for me to choose just one (Grati pouts cutely).
