“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet.” – Romeo & Juliet (Shakespeare)
What’s in a name is exactly what I had to ask myself when thinking of what my very first blog should be called.
Although Juliet was pondering on the fact that Romeo’s name tarnished any possibility of his acceptance by her own family; my angle on the question had more to do with feeling comfortable with a name that would represent me and my blog but not limit the type of content I wanted to post.
There are a number of reasons why I wanted to add to the squillions and squillions of blogs out there, but first I had to come up with a name, and it wasn’t easy!
The process of deciding on a name was long and frustrating, knowing that there is a possibility this could become a fully fledged brand that I have to represent, but I have made up my mind and Curly Crown Connection it is.
It has always been a desire of mine to work for a glossy magazine as a journo a-la Carrie Bradshaw style, long before Sex and The City made it cool, however it didn’t really happen, well at least not for long (I interned for a magazine publication during my university years).
This lil ole blog will fulfill this fantasy and chronicle topics that interest me, such as natural afro hair, fashion, music, health and fitness or whatever else stimulates my curly crown *smile*
