About the Blogger
Hi, my name is Sarah. I’m a
21 year old recent graduate (time to update this about me, it’s two years outdated!), blogger and internet junkie from Washington State. I graduated with a B.A. in Sociology and a minor in Humanities in June 2013. I have been blogging since 2009 and continue to love it, for the most part– I go through some odd phases.
I’m not too sure where my life is going at this point, but I’m excited to see where I’ll end up. This whole transition period into ‘real’ adulthood is a lot harder than I’ve been lead to believe. I’m currently living at home with my Mom, our three cats, one dog and seven chickens. The current plan is to move to the city with my boyfriend (whom I intend to marry) in the somewhat near future and acquire a job that pays decently.

Behind the Name
MaeGal? Is it a name, a real word, is MaeGal the same as Maegal, what’s the story behind the name?
I realized recently that while I have been meaning to do so since I started this blog about five years ago, I still have never talked about how I came up with my blog name and what it means. I thought it was really about time for me to share with you all why my blog is named as it is and where I got the name from.
“MaeGal” came to be when I was first beginning my days on the internet and was looking for a username for a variety of sites. Back in those days, I often formatted the name with an underscore between ‘Mae’ and ‘Gal’, which is why the ‘G’ is always capitalized when I write it. “Maegal” is simply NOT the same! “MaeGal” came from the fact that my mother has called me “Mae Girl” for much of my life. I converted the “girl” to “gal” to satisfy my need to have things even. that way there would be three letters on either side of the underscore (back in the older days).
So there you have it. “MaeGal” began as a nickname my Mom gave me, morphed into my username, and now has become my blog and business name.
About the Blog
MaeGal; a personal review, giveaway & anything blog.
I started this blog as a way to share my interests with those who were willing to read. Over time, I’ve grown more heavily into the review and giveaway realm of blogging, but I have continued to create content relevant to my interests. I enjoy writing posts on topics from fashion to beauty to books to cleaning to cooking to technology to home and whatever else might strike my fancy on any given day.
I began blogging in March 2009 on a fashion blog I started called ‘MaeGal’s Fashion’. That sparked my interested in the blogging world and changed my interest from fashion blogging specifically to blogging in general. I created three new blogs for three more interests of mine, ‘MaeGal’s Makeup’, ‘MaeGal’s Reading’ and later on ‘MaeGal’s Living’. Those blogs only lasted a few months before I decided it was time to combine all my blogs into this one blog that you see here today. In February of 2011, I officially opened ‘MaeGal’, with specific sections to represent each of the old blogs.
If you ever have any questions or anything, don’t hesitate to contact me. I’m terrible with ‘about me’ sections, but if you have questions, I do enjoy sharing.
I apologize if there are errors, or if this is vague. I haven’t edited this portion for a while.
If you need to contact me for any reason, the email address maegalpr(at)gmail(dot)com is the best way to do so. Though I will only check that occasionally. Your best bet would be by contacting me via my Facebook Fan Page.
