What I would like to do here though is put out a bit of an appeal with regard to our book and the chapter I am currently working on, which is conventions and meetups. I myself have planned a convention for Duran Duran fans in 2004, but I would really like the insight of others to include in my research on the topic. Have you been to a convention (even if it was the one in New Orleans in 2004)? Were you there as an attendee or a planner?? Have you ever attended other Duran fans meetups or other events? What about Duranie sleepovers or parties? If so – I want to hear from you! I’d like to know about your experience, how you felt when you attended such events or planned them. Did it help you participate more fully as a fan? Did you learn to appreciate being part of a community? Do you think you became a bigger or more loyal fan as a result? Please note than when I ask if you became a bigger fan – I don’t mean in relation to others – I mean did you feel like you loved the band even more than you did prior? If you have anything you’d like to share with regard to that topic, please email me (Rhonda) at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put “Convention Chapter” in the subject line, thanks!
Have you bought your ticket to the Facebook Premiere of A Diamond in the Mind yet?? If so, I’ll see you on Sunday….look for me, I’ll in the front on Dom’s side!
