Hello friends and welcome to Curiosity & Grace! My name is Sarah and I recently graduated from the University of North Texas with a degree in journalism. I work as the PR Coordinator for the Craft Yarn Council/Warm Up America! and one of my passions is writing, which is why I’ve decided to start this blog.
My goal for the blog is to write two weekly posts – one for the general blog and one shorter post on Fridays for my “Friday Feeling” series. My general blog doesn’t have any particular niche because I can’t possibly focus on one specific topic. Instead, I’ll be writing about lots of different things that interest me – lifestyle, faith, feminism, pop culture, crafting, , travel, and a LOT more.
Friday Feeling posts will be posted every Friday (duh) and will be about whatever is going on that week. I guess you could say it’s more like a journal than a blog about a particular topic. I might write about what I’ve been listening to or reading that week, something exciting that happened, or something that’s been on my mind.
You may be asking yourself at this point, how did you get the name “Curiosity & Grace”? Well, as with anything I do, after deciding to start my own blog (and actually stick with it), I did research. And by research, I mean I scoured every possible article and blog post about what it takes to start your own lifestyle blog. I read about attaining your own domain, which blog platforms work best, and how to decide on your overall aesthetic. One of the most important things that every article I read mentioned, though, is the name. After all, as Shakespeare famously asked, “What’s in a name?”
I wanted my blog name to be simple and easy to remember, but also represent who I am. I came up with a list of words that I like and that describe who I am. I wanted the name to evoke my inquisitive side, while also demonstrating my faith. As I am a naturally curious person, I decided to include some variation of that word in the title. I’ve always liked the word grace in describing who God is, so I decided to make that the second word. Somehow it only took me about thirty minutes to come up with the name which, if you know me, is almost unheard of. I am a notoriously indecisive person and I expected it to take me days to decide on a name. But lo and behold! – here I am writing my first post!
Anyway, thanks for visiting my blog and reading my first post! I hope you enjoyed it and be on the lookout for more posts! 🙂
