I’m introducing a new series to IWantToBeAPinUp that will appear each weekend and will feature RA blog posts that have caught my eye in the past seven days.
I have enlisted the cooperation of Arkenstone and Guylty to comb through the internet in search of RA, OT, Hobbit and fandom-related goodies.
We’re busy bees so we can’t be everywhere at all times, not to mention that I personally have the attention span of a drunk ant, so please feel free to add links to things that you’d like to share both here or over at the other two blogs.
You can also check out my BlogSpot blogroll to find out what bloggers have posted recently.
Please consider leaving comments and likes at blogs you visit 🙂
Armitage Weekly Round-Up Week 1
This week is going to be a bit of a mess.
I’ve included some Christmas posts in the round-up and may have linked to posts that have already done the rounds, so forgive me, next week should be better organized.
I’ve ended up including things from almost 2 weeks, so there’s plenty to pick through.
I’m also introducing a Golden Oldies section that will highlight a few amazing posts from the past.
Arkenstone is doing an Armitage Weekly Round-Up: Fanfiction which features some of the highlights of what our writer fandom friends have to offer.
Guylty has braved the wildest of jungles to compile the Armitage Weekly Round-up: Tumblr so you can catch up on the mayhem that corner of Armitageville has to offer.
January sees the kick-off of the spReAd the love campaign (click here to learn more about it).
It will last throughout 2014 and celebrates the generosity of this fandom in local communities.
Additionally, each donation or act of kindness noted till the end of February here or here will mean a £1 donation to Armitage’s Just Giving Charities (to a £200 max).
All you have to do is leave a comment at either Jazz’s or Obscura’s blog (anonymously if you like) or send them an email.
Thank you to the generous collaboRAtor who has pledged this sum!
And remember, a good way to spReAd the love is to spReAd the word 🙂
Christmas/New Year’s Goodies:
Firstly, Christmas courtesy of Richard Armitage Bulgaria Facebook, came a little late this year.
I definitely approve of this Guy of Gisborne prequel stuffed in my stocking!
Angie reminisces about Christmases past (very moving) and there’s a new video to celebrate the season too.
This Cinderella will go to the ball!
Morrighansmuse knows, much like a wizard, an RA Christmas video is never late, she also reflects on fangirling in 2014
Guylty’s present from her hubby may well take the cake. Well played Sir!
Herba offers a counter-offer present. Again, well played Madam!
This is one lap

Can someone tell me why KatherineD doesn’t have her own blog? She takes on the BBC in a guest post
CDoart weighs in on the fourth wall issue, so does Frenzy
KatherineD has got her mind on the (hobbit) money and the money on her mind
I didn’t think Richard is old enough to be of interest to an archaeologist
An amazing Geek calendar for 2014 featuring a few familiar faces
A bit OT, I think Smaug needs mouthwash
Surely being spoofed is a sign of success?
Talking about twisting reality, I hope Richard’s dog Spinee is OK
Jonia’s Armitage wine is coming along nicely. Bottom’s up!
I’m sure time would fly if a certain MI5 operative was keeping tabs, but what happens if you especially love a particular picture? get stuck on that month?
Thorin get’s royally screwed
Grimmella takes on the issue of Tolkien and gender
Fabolaktuko goes on her own unexpected journey and takes on another Middle Earth challenge (heavy page)

Not enough arrows in the world could point to where I’d do it…
The Durin Boys have been having a tough time of it lately
Fandom Compulsion, it always starts off so innocently but the process is the same no matter who the object of your affections is…
I agree with Kathrynruthd, RL stuff such as working interferes too much with fangirling!
Bloggers celebrate their annual blogging results: Serv, Fedoralady and Knightleyemma.
Congrats and many more!
Each week I will be dusting off some of the best posts that have been published within the RA fandom.
If you’d like to suggest a post/series please link in comments.
Have you met Stick-figure Richard?
You can check out his entire history here.
He resides over at Nat’s place and is the lothario of the stick-figure world.
You can even follow him on Twitter, although he’s rather too busy living his jet-set lifestyle to be tweeting about it.
Check out other Armitage Weekly Round-up’s courtesy of Arky and Guylty.
Also, please include any other links I may have missed in comments.
See you next week 🙂
