10,000 followers at Richard Armitage Net today. Congrats!

Standard

Just found out via Twitter that Ali’s wonderful site–an absolute must for any true RA fan–has now gained 10,000 followers. Ali told us earlier that the numbers really spiked upward after the Twitter Q&A and today reached that milestone. Hooray!

I told Ali earlier I was a fan from the days of a previous site, Army Dreamers, and I have enjoyed watching Richard Armitage Net grow and flourish over the years.  Who of us doesn’t love the Picture of the Day (POD), or checking out the latest poll results? And we know Ali works hard to keep us abreast of all the latest Richard news, from the most recent photos (and older ones that have newly surfaced) to print and video interviews.

As Richard’s career grows and his fanbase widens, more and more people will come to discover Ali’s site. I just want to say “thank you” for all your hard work, Ali. Congrats!

You can follow Ali at Twitter at @Ranetdotcom (which I highly recommend if you aren’t already following and you have a Twitter account) to stay uber-up-to-date.  Or keep her page bookmarked on your computer and refresh it regularly.  www.richardarmitagenet.com  She is also at Facebook!

And here’s that latest interview with Lorraine in HD–courtesy of Ali’s 13-year-old whiz kid. Seems it runs in the famly.

Twitter is a-stir; RA is coming, RA is coming (to visit if not to stay)

UPDATE: I still don’t have a time when this is going to take place, but it appears Andy Serkis and James Nesbitt will also be in on the Q&A. Not as excited now TBPH. Can see Jimmy taking over the whole thing. *sigh* Feel like crap all way around this morning anyway. Hope your day is going better, my dears!

 

Yes, in case you somehow haven’t heard, hell has apparently frozen over and our own Richard Armitage will be on Twitter tomorrow with the assistance of @TheHobbitMovie answering fan-submitted questions. Just don’t ask him what he had for lunch.  😉

I’ve already asked several questions, one of which was if we’ll hear more of Richard’s singing voice along with Thorin playing the harp. And there’s been plenty of activity in the Twitterverse as questions have been coming in fast and furious from all over the globe.

Not word yet on the actual time of day this will take place, but a lot of bated breaths over there at Twitter, let me tell you! I will post more info as soon as I know.

Do I think this will make RA a convert to Twitter? Uh–no. I think he may be feel more than a little overwhelmed at the tidal wave of questions, serious and silly, coming his way–although I am sure he will handle it all with his typical aplomb.

And to be honest, while I am thoroughly looking forward to this event and seeing his answers (and hope he does more such Q&As in the future), I still don’t see Richard Armitage as a guy who will choose to hang out a lot in the Twitterverse.  Just doesn’t seem like his style.

Then again, I never thought I would do it, either.  Life can surprise you!

Do any of you non-Twitter folks have questions you’d like me to submit on your behalf? Leave me a comment.

Someone’s already asked if RA plans to have more swing and sway moments of hair acting with his horse.
