No More Cutest Blog on The Block!

Just a quick note, I don't recommend using "Cutest Blog on the Block". I was very unhappy today to log on to find a message at the bottom of my blog page, where it usually had their logo, saying that as of Friday my layout would disappear. Granted it is a free source, so I didn't pay for the layout, but I really liked it and was considering paying them to get a matching header and button at some point soon. I don't know if they only have space to have so many background codes so new ones are being added while older ones are deleted, or if there is just a set limit for how long you may use any given background for free. I didn't see any disclosure about it when I first grabbed the background, but either way I am seriously disappointed with them. I don't want to change my layout a whole lot. I would rather stick with one particular layout for good. I realize the 'easy' answer is to purchase a custom made one, but I just don't have the money laying around at the moment for that.
Maybe I will make it my goal, when I reach 100 followers I will buy one. So now I guess I just have to branch out and hope there are many more out there who may enjoy the things I have to say!

Which on that note, sorry I have been slacking a little this week! After this past crazy week, I have been cleaning and generally keeping very busy!! I am hoping tomorrow or Friday to get a little more opportunity to sit down and finish a few posts I was able to begin but not end! And this is the first week in a while I haven't even had my Mommy's Piggy Tales story ready to go, I have next week's done, but not this week's!


  1. that sucks! Im sorry about that, but keep looking around the blogs and stuff alot of times they have giveaways for custom backgrounds thats how i got mine :)

  2. Ack! Sorry to hear that! I hope you find a solution that works for you.

    I'm using a free layout from Blogaholic Designs and am happy with them. I'm always surfing for other free stuff too, so if you look through the blogs I'm following, there are other design blogs in there as well that do some free stuff (like you, I'm still at "free" stage. I think I might purchase a bit later on, I just want to make sure I'm gonna stick it out with the blogging first!).

    Best of luck!

  3. I made my own. It's not the best in the world, but I did do it all by myself! :) LOL. I'm really gonna miss the freebies from Cutest Blog on the Block. :( I used their site for 4th of July. What a bummer...thanks for the info.


I enjoy hearing what you think about this!
Thank you so much for sharing!
