Canned Dragons is a personal web log by a prolific notetaker named Robert. This blog pulls in thoughts from other independent blogs as well as social media accounts and major publishers. This project is an effort to celebrate the earlier days of blogging. The site focuses on faith, noise, technology and adjacent topics.

This site follows the POSSE "Publish (on your) Own Site, Syndicate Elsewhere" model, which is described as “a content publishing model that starts with posting content on your own domain first, then syndicating out copies to 3rd party services with permashortlinks back to the original on your site.”

Treasure Hoard is a roughly monthly Canned Dragons newsletter that captures some of the thoughts circulating on the internet along with some personal reflections. It's free and you can check it out by subscribing with your email address. Since this blog is self-hosted, I'm the only one that sees your email address and it won't be shared.

Please see the privacy policy for information on how this site handles your data.

Canned Dragons is powered by the open source publishing platform Ghost and is hosted on Digital Ocean
