Celebrating 10 Years Online

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!

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

New Layout!
Posted by Megs

Thanks to my very talented friend Jenny, we have a brand new layout to celebrate the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II! What do you think?!

You can still access the old theme by finding “Theme” in the left sidebar and clicking “DH1”, to get back to this layout from that one you have to click “DH2” on the right sidebar.

Off to Hogwarts!
Posted by Megs

Hello everyone,

I wanted to let you all know that I am on vacation from today until next Saturday the 2nd of April. I’m off to Florida to go to the beach, Disney and of course the Harry Potter Theme Park (this is my first time going to Florida or on a plane…I know, shocking, ha ha). Expect a lot of photos and videos from the park when I return! Do you guys have any questions about the park that you would like me to try and answer? (how much things cost, etc.)

I will also have some fun Potter-related surprises for you the week I come back, that’s all I can say right now though, but its pretty exciting stuff!

Finally, I WILL have access to the internet so if any big news breaks I will still be posting (with my trusty iPad), so I won’t be totally gone.

See you all in about a week!

Merry Christmas
Posted by Megs

Hey everyone, just wishing you a very Happy Christmas and I hope you are having a good day with your family! If you don’t celebrate, just have a good day.

P.S. I did this post on my new iPad! Yay! I got it mainly so I can update the site while I’m on vacation, see what I do for you all. 🙂

I will have a review of my new case from Zazzle in a few days probably.
