Guest Post: Neatly-Packaged

Today I have a special guest post for you all! This is from my fantastic friend Nancy!

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi there! My name is Nancy and I am the proud writer for Neatly-Packaged :) When I came to Rachel with the idea that we do a guest post on each other as a way to put our new blogs out there, she loved it! She initially reached out to me after seeing through my blog that we had more than a few things in common and I was more than thrilled to hear from her. And thus our bloggy friendship was born :)



I started blogging about 3 months ago as a way to document my adventures post-graduation from university. Neatly-Packaged is my little piece of the internet where I write my likes, dislikes, adventures, and passions. I had really no idea what the blogging world was like and only had a tiny glimpse through the movie “Julie & Julia.” So when I found myself spending hours surfing the web, pinning on Pinterest, and watching countless shows on Hulu, at my now finacé’s office I knew I needed to do something. The credit for the commencement of Neatly-Packaged really goes to my finacé. He suggested that I start a blog and maybe one day I could make money off of it. Now this is not my sole purpose of writing Neatly-Packaged but it is something nice to look forward to. Getting paid for writing my thoughts? Cool!



I am 23 years old and newly engaged. I graduated from The University of Texas at San Antonio with my B.A. in French and minor in International Business. I had every intention of attending law school after I graduated but that is not what the stars had planned for me. I met my very handsome fiancé, fell hopelessly in love, and made the promise to follow him :)

My hobbies include reading my nook, looking for great deals on wine, reading greeting cards, and most recently blogging :)

I have really enjoyed becoming fully immersed into the blogging world and figuring out the ins and outs. Reading some truly, beautifully written posts and makes new friends like Rachel have really made this experience worth it. Please check out my blog as well as Rachel’s and lets become friends too :)

    1. Thanks Alison! :) Yes it honestly has been difficult because my brain has been trained to work all the time. But my fiance owns his own business so I get to help him out there :)
