{Why We Blog} Week: Why Neely Blogs

Hey Y'all I'm Neely! I blog over at A Complete Waste of Makeup. 

It's a pretty neat blog if I do say so myself. What do I blog about you ask? Oh everything! Starbucks, wine, shopping, my love of Tory Burch and Kate Spade, reality TV, reading, my search for a teaching job, travel, my boyfriend C, my friends and makeup duh! Oh this is me....

I also co-host 2 awesome-sauce linkups! ITS OK Thursdays and Boob Tube Babble Fridays! You should prob come check it out :)
When Sweet Casey asked me to be a part of her "Why We Blog" week I was sooooo excited! Not only do I adore Casey and her blog but I felt so honored she wanted me to be a part of it! 
Why do I blog?
1. This group of women I have found through blogging are as crazy, quirky, silly and random as I am and I love that kind of bonding between like minded awesome women :)

2. I love being able to share whats happening in my life. The good, the bad and the ugly. When Chad and I have had problems I blog about it.  When we have seen a counselor I blog about it. When I buy a new pair of shoes I blog about it. When my dad got diagnosed with cancer, I blog about it. When I fell out of a cab on my 27th birthday I blogged about :)

3. Blogging has brought me some truly amazing opportunities. I have a group of close friends I would have never had, if it hadn't been for blogging. I have gotten to connect with companies and people that I would have never heard about or known. I would probably have not spent so much money on etsy and I would never know about half the makeup products in my caboodle...yes caboodle.

But mostly...daily....every time I doubt why I blog I remember that I blog for me. This is my place, this is my voice, this is my little corner of the inter-webs. If people don't like it, that's OK....they can find a different blog to read. But I blog for me and me only. 
I think when blogging, thats the best way to go about it.....but you know that's just my opinion :)
I hope you enjoyed my guest post and feel free to come find me on all of the social media platforms!!
