Choosing your blog’s name is an important part of starting your blog. The name of your blog will help identify you and set the mood of your blog. It can be difficult to think of good name and it took me a while to chose mine. Finding Briar may seem like a simple blog name but it took a lot of thought to come up with it.
This is why and how I came up with my blog’s name “Finding Briar”:
Briar isn’t my real name (surprise!). But I do have a weird connection to the name.
I have always loved the name Briar and it is very similar to my own name. It is easy for me to identify with this name.
I knew that I wanted my blog to be about finding myself because I began it at a very difficult time in my life. I felt like I had my eyes closed to a lot of things and while in an abusive relationship, I began to open my eyes for the first time. I began trying to figure out who I was and why things like this were happening.
In some stories, Sleeping Beauty’s name was Briar Rose. The name Briar means thorny patch – which is what I felt like I was going through at the time I started this blog – a thorny patch in my life. Like Sleeping Beauty, I feel like I’ve been asleep for a really long time and I’m finally waking up. Sadly, it wasn’t a charming prince that woke me up but an entitled psychopath.
