Magical Menagerie - Celebrating 10 Years Online

We can’t believe it, but Magical-Menagerie launched TEN YEARS AGO today. Back then we were called Draco Dormiens Nunquam Titilandus, DDNT for short, good thing we changed the name a year later, what a mouthful! Take a trip down memory lane and look at our first layout, HAH! P.S. Did you know you can still switch layouts? The default is Deathly Hallows 1 but we still have Deathly Hallows 2, Half-Blood Prince and Order of the Phoenix working! Although there may be a few bugs on the last 2!



When we say we, it’s actually just me, Megan, the founder/owner/only staff member. I started this site in my senior year of high school after taking an HTML class and I’m so glad to see how it has grown over the years. Since then I have started the best *wink wink* Matthew Lewis fan site and made a career out of being online.

I work as a freelance web/graphic designer in addition to my own websites. You could say that Harry Potter and J.K. Rowling helped me to find my calling in life and I will be forever grateful. I rarely share photos of myself on here, but in honor of the 10th anniversary, enjoy:



Since starting the website, we have been to multiple Potter premieres, the Grand Opening of the Warner Bros. Studio Tour and attended many events at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. I’ve also had to “force” a few friends to go to events for the site when I couldn’t take the time off to fly, they were so upset. 😉 News may have wavered over the years but, now that we have Fantastic Beasts and Cursed Child, I have a feeling it will go back to the good old days of multiple news stories every day!

I want to thank all of you for your support over these 10 years, here’s to 10 more!

Also a big thank you to Jenny who has made almost all of our site layouts over the years!
