FanstRAvaganza 3 thanks!
FanstRAvaganza is a labor of love: of Richard Armitage’s fans, by Richard Armitage’s fans, for Richard Armitage’s fans. Oops, that got unintentionally oratorical. Before I start nattering on about things that shall not perish from this earth, at the end of a whirlwind F3 week, with 130 posts published on 32 blogs, writing in my role as post coordinator I would like to thank the five necessary entities — each of which without whom along we could not get:
Without enthusiastic readers, there’d be no reason to do this at all. We hope you found some new friends and some new blogs to follow, and we thank you for every page view, every thought you had, every comment you took the time to write and post!
(And if you didn’t read everything this week, a complete index of this week’s posts can still be found here!)
Everyone who created materials for F3: guest posters, interviewees, tagteam bloggers, core bloggers! A complete list of blogging participants is found here. Without you all, there’d have been nothing to enjoy. Thanks to everyone who posted, helped create a post, was interviewed for a post, and/ or supported a blogger technically, for taking the time to play your A game this week, putting in extra work, and presenting your best stuff for everyone to ponder, drool or laugh over. It truly was a high level potluck of Armitage love.
In particular, I’d like to thank both the tagteams and the core bloggers for doing such an amazing job of posting on schedule. I was expecting a fulfillment rate of something like 75%, and instead it was over 90%. Your timeliness, along with the fact that you all took the extra time and care to make the system of interlinking blogs work, drove traffic everywhere throughout the event and ensured a minimum of dead-end links. Your willingness to do these things made the event a lot more fun for everyone!
Speaking of publicity … we would like to thank for general and specific publicity, threads, links, and tweets:
Richard Armitage Central, for the threads
C19, for the threads
Richard Armitage Board, for the threads
RichardArmitageNet.com, for the link to the Captain America-related interview
pi, for the link listing
Fabo, for jumping in to tweet on a busy day
Violet, for warning Lucas North his career will be over if he takes time to read any of this.
Inevitably, this is the section where I will have forgotten someone, just because I’m never aware of everything that’s happening in the big wide world of Armitage fans. So let me apologize in advance to anyone who isn’t mentioned here. Seriously — this event works because of publicity and because people talk about it and link and interlink. If you did that but are not listed here and would like some public love from Servetus, let me know, cuz I love you and I wanna say it. And if you did it but don’t want the public love — well, I love you anyway and you can’t stop me. Mwah! Mwah! Mwah!
… more specifically..
A lot would remain to be said here, but summarizing: without these ladies’ advice, support, and their detail orientation regarding publicity and technology, F3 would never have gotten off the ground.
Last but not least, of course, another kind of sine qua non.
Some of the individual bloggers may have some individual wrapup and acknowledgements posts, but with this message, FanstRAvaganza 3 thanks you all for your attention for the last week, and happily …
