Blogger Ashley Brooke interview's Carly Heitlinger | 

Carly A. Heitlinger

I’m super excited to introduce you to this week’s Desk Obsessed guest! Today is all about my good friend Carly from the blog Carly the Prepster. Carly and I started as friends on social media and turned into real life friends over the last few years. She is one of the sweetest and most genuine people I know. Not only is she amazingly talented and a blogging pioneer, but she’s an incredibly kind and a loyal friend… I consider myself lucky to know her!

Carly’s blog, The College Prepster, is one of the most read blogs around. Her fans and followers are die hards and Carly has tapped into something truly special with her readers. If you haven’t heard of Carly then you must not have internet… because she’s kind of a big deal. 

Anyway, below are some fun Q&A’s about how Carly keeps her desk and stays on track. I hope you enjoy this one!
