What’s in the Name?
Naming a blog is tricky and important. It sets the tone, gives you and us some direction, pops up on Google.
So, what to call ourselves? Besides “Genevieve and Mike,” which are our names.
Well, we’re Catholic, engaged, and don’t always agree. Our seemingly small niche as Church workers and graduate-theology-degree-holders ends up with a pretty broad range of expressions of faith between us. If our title reflected these characteristics, we thought we could lure polarized Catholics into reading the blog.
When we couldn’t find a way to use the “Engaged Catholics — with differences” thing, we figured our next most marketable trait was that while that our beliefs don’t always match up, they also don’t fit into typical American Church categories. We’re not easy to place on the spectrum.
