We’re Amanda & Rhonda, and we run this joint. Welcome to our little place in the world. This is the home we’ve been wanting to build all these years, and we really hope you like it and feel comfortable.
In case you don’t already know us and you have no idea what or who Daily Duranie is…we’ll give you the 30 second bio. We’re two (very outspoken) fans unleashing our opinion of the “State of Durandom” (if you’re not a Duran Duran fan, you’re probably already scratching your head).
Yes…this blog is written daily, and we mean DAILY. Sometimes, there are multiple posts per day. The best way to keep up is to subscribe or get the blog by email, but don’t let us tell you what to do. We are happy to have you here no matter how you choose to keep up with us (and good luck trying!).
Our current projects include a yet-to-be-titled manuscript that is a case study on the Duran Duran fan community (at large), and this blog. We’ll give you a little background history: Daily Duranie started out on Blogger in 2010, and in late January of 2014 we finally moved to WordPress. We’ve also planned a variety of meet-ups and get togethers for Duranies across the United States and even a few in the UK. We do these get togethers because in our opinion – the connections we make between one another are what really keep us all together. It is a testament to that fact that even when the band is busy recording and even on vacation (they take a LOT of holidays!!), our site is very active, and fans continue to keep talking about the band. We just can’t stop!!
In 2013 we planned the very first Durandemonium – a fan convention for Duran Duran fans. What will the future bring? We wouldn’t dare begin to guess! So far, it’s been quite a journey, and we’re looking forward to whatever comes next.
