There seem to be a lot of milestones being celebrated in our Richard Armitage blogging world lately.
I don’t pay much attention to my own milestones. When I make a post, WordPress tells me how many I’ve made so far (this will be 34) but that’s usually as far as it goes for me. Tracking the days, months, hits, etc. tends to make me jittery, so I don’t do it very often.
I decided to take a peek though, and saw that it’s been three months since I started this blog; roughly eight months since I became fascinated with Richard Armitage.
The blogging seems longer to me, while the fangirling seems shorter. (we’re currently 3-4 months into my fan path)
While peeking at my fan path outline… yes, I have an outline for this blog
I noticed that the Richard Armitage 30 Day Challenge was close at hand. So I thought, why not start it on my three month anniversary? I’m going to try to follow the actual 30 day set-up this time, unlike the A-Z Challenge, where I’m still slowly trudging along.
I’ll still try to keep to my weekly two posts, this will be in addition to those…that’s a lot of blogging! Wish me Luck!
Richard Armitage 30 day challenge
1.) Q: The first role you saw him in
A: The Hobbit
The Hobbit is how I first discovered Richard Armitage, though I realized later that I had actually seen him in Captain America first. While Heinz is somewhat forgettable, Thorin is definitely not!
His presence intrigued me, while those eyes and that penetrating stare captivated me.
The moment that door opens to him in Bag End…
it sweeps my legs out from under me and carries me headlong into the story. every time.
