The Daily Wrocket

As the Daily Wrocket official website is still in progress (and thereby closed to the public), I have decided to post at the least a very small preview from what is ready so far: a portion of my answer to the question, "What is the Daily Wrocket?"

So sit back, relax, and read a little about the Daily Wrocket to give you an idea of what it's all about!

What is the Daily Wrocket?
Have you ever considered how music plays into our lives and the effect it has on masses of listeners? I hope to use this project as a way of learning about and sharing the effect that Wizard Rock in particular has on the individuals who listen to it every day by observing the bands instead of the listeners.

I will be taking a different Wizard Rock band each day for 365 days and focusing my thoughts and discussion of Wizard Rock through them. The ultimate goal of the Daily Wrocket is to take an alternative approach to listening to music and sharing it with others. This is not a project where I plan on listing a band each day with their rap sheet of albums and music to date. No - I want to react to the music, to the band, and to the impact each band has had on the Wizard Rock Community, the Harry Potter Fandom, and on my own personal life.

I hope for this to be a very personal approach to music, Wizard Rock, and the challenges that arise in a small, close-knit community and how we rise above them to grow closer and stronger than ever before.

If you're a Wizard Rocker and would like to have a write-up about your band on the Wrocket, please email me at: I will send you interview questions to answer so I can make your write-up as awesome as possible!


  1. Wow Dinah! This looks like it's going to be a totally awesome site. I can't wait for it to go live! Any clue as to how far out that is (are we gonna have to wait weeks? Days? Are you hoping I'll stop asking questions to you can go make it public RIGHT NOW?)? ;-)

  2. Well, the official goal is to launch on January 1st, but I have a personal goal that is quite a bit sooner. I won't give that date because if I am too busy to create enough of a backlog to make that happen, then I'll feel like a dick.

    My goal is to have a minimum of 30 write-ups pre-written before the official launch, but I plan on posting occasional editorials, thoughts, etc. prior to the beginning of the 365 day madness to keep interest while I'm working on my backlog. So once the web design is done for the site, it'll be live with occasional updates from me. And I'll probably update on my backlog through Twitter starting in the next week or so.

  3. 2 in 2 days! Cool :) I look forward to this project starting.
