Last updated 14 Dec 2020.
I’ve had many hobby sites over the years, and I’ve given some up along the way for different reasons.
With Dragonsinn.net, I bounced around several times thinking about what I should do with the site.
Since the site has been online for 20+ years, I thought I’d try a monthly digital dragon magazine style theme this year as a personal reminder to keep it going.
Dragon Magazine / Blog Monthly Themes
You could call it a dragon magazine, blog, or ezine (or a hybrid of the three!). The themes aren’t set in stone — they’re mostly there to serve as reference when it comes to curating or sharing dragon-related information. I’m using them as a guideline to keep things more organized.
I scribbled down some ideas over the weekend, so here are the themes for the monthly blog updates.
Reset / 2021
2020 was a U.S. election year and I got some horror stories accepted for publication. Needless to say, I got sidetracked amidst the general anxiety I’ve battled throughout most of my adult life.
After a fun and relaxing trip with my boyfriend to St. Augustine FL (with dragon sightings!), I am refocusing to continue the ezine themes into the new year.
I have cut down on my side projects to focus more on quality over quantity. I hope to commit to this schedule this time around.

How You Can Help
If you would like to contribute a dragon-related poem, quote, personal story (what you like about dragons), photo, or share the link to a social media post, send them in! Again, the themes are not set in stone so don’t worry if what you’d like to share doesn’t fit into that month’s theme. As long as it’s about dragons, it’s all good.
And since I mentioned social media, is there one you like using in particular?
I have a Pinterest account (@dragonsinn) although I’m on the blog/site more often nowadays. I’m not a heavy user of the other social media platforms as I find it more mentally peaceful to limit my usage of them. I still like communicating old-school style via email 🙂
Alrighty, now to put together the header images for some ezine issues. 🐲
