Cherry on Top Spring Cleaning

355 days ago, I wrote my first blog post under “Carolina Charm.” For the next few months I kept my blog a secret for two reasons. One, I feared no one would be interested in following the ramblings of a “wanna-be southern belle,” writing about my adventures in cooking, crafting, and wedding planning. The second reason was because I was painfully embarrassed by my horrendous “template design,” which looked like a 4 year old played with my HTML code. 

A few months into blogging, I started begging Matt to let me splurge on a custom blog template. He laughed and agreed that if I ever reached 100 “followers” he would let me get my custom design. Well, within months I had surpassed 100 followers and was well on my way to 200! I am not sure who was more shocked, he or me! Not expecting to ever exceed 20 followers {all of which would be friends and family}, we re-negotiated at 1,000 followers and I used a free shabby template to tide me over. 

Well, a few days ago Erin at Living in Yellow revealed her new blog design and I knew I immediately needed to pay a visit {pun intended} to Cherry on Top Blog Shoppe. As luck would have it, Melissa was offering a Sidebar Spring Cleaning Special! So for my upcoming BLOGOVERSARY {in 9 days}, Matt purchased this great deal for Carolina Charm! 

Special Ends April 20th!

If you are looking for an affordable way to beautify your blog, I highly suggest working with the talented Melissa on a sidebar clean up! Stay tuned for Carolina Charm’s spring cleaning to debut soon!

Happy Weekend, friends!

    Too funny that he made you wait until you reached 100 followers. You are almost close to reaching half of your 1,000 mark so you definitely deserve a little spring cleaning!
