All About Dragons

If you’re like most Dragonsinn visitors and readers, you’ve had a longtime fascination with dragons!

Some of the things you may enjoy about dragons include:

  • Learning about dragon culture and history
  • Reading dragon poems and short stories
  • Dragon tattoos and art
  • Dragon quotes
  • Dragon figurines, products and design

I’ve always been drawn to the power of dragons and how they continue to capture the imagination of millions around the globe.

Why Dragons?

I was in my early teens when my mom got me a copy of a drag-and-drop site builder. This was back in 1999, so I’ve been online for quite a while.

“Dragons” was my first-choice subject for my first website.

My career since then has always involved online media. Now you know where it all began!

I revamped the dragon website for the third time from 2018-2020, so that it was optimized for viewing on mobile browsers.

This site is where my interest in blogging and SEO optimization stemmed from. It reminds me to stay focused and disciplined with the things that matter in life.

My aim with this site is partly for nostalgic purposes, and more so for educational purposes. I am passionate about curating information and hope this site is a solid resource for all of the dragon content you’re seeking.

Also, since the site is turning 25 y/o in 2024, I’ve set myself a goal to complete my first collection of dragon poems (an expansion from the ten or so that I wrote and posted on this blog over the years).

Website History

Launched in June 1999. This site was built with Web Studio.

In April 2003, the website was redesigned on Dreamweaver.

In October 2006, I updated the black background to a white background. I didn’t update the website for several years as I had a lot going on during my mid to late twenties. In my early 30s, I moved to Florida (and experienced my first hurricane).

The 2018/2019 version is a big overhaul in terms of design and new content.
