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
  • Making new friends online who share this common interest
  • Reading dragon poems and short stories
  • Dragon tattoos and art
  • Cool dragon accessories
  • Dragon t-shirts

But it gets hard to keep track of where everything is, doesn’t it?

Sometimes your favorite page is on Wikipedia, sometimes it’s on a social media network that you don’t sign onto often, and sometimes you just plain forget where you came across something.

The Inspiration

Therein lies the inspiration for Dragonsinn.net since day one back in 1999.

We aim to be a one stop resource for all of the dragon content you’re seeking.

Dragons have remained a powerful cultural symbol since the beginning of time, for good reason.

Why Dragons?

I wanted to make a website when I was 12, and “dragons” was my first-choice subject.

Almost 20 years later (how did that happen?!), I revamped the dragon website for the third time. Now it is finally optimized for viewing on mobile browsers.

This site was 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.

Recently Busy With

In 2019, I got a job as a writer/editor for a popular podcast in the personal development field. 🎧

In 2020, I spend some evenings studying or writing short stories. For horror short stories, you may find me at my author website at some point in the future. ✍🏻

Dragons Represent

Freedom and forever. Power, grace, rebirth, passion, focus, intelligence.

Other Interests

Reading, writing, cooking, art, astrology, bikes, yoga, swimming, nature, personal finance, taking care of pets and plants.

And playing Diablo 3 on my bf’s PS as the female demon hunter (I played the first Diablo way back when).

Some Thoughts on this Website

As a young kid, I was very captivated by dragon stories. This early love for reading has been the cornerstone of every single endeavor I’ve spent time on in my teenage years and beyond.

I appreciate all of the visitors Dragonsinn.net has had over the years!


Website History

It started back 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.
