Change is a Comin’

The view from my seat at BLOGSHOP this weekend as the sun streamed into the studio.

As I previously mentioned, this past weekend I had the opportunity to attend an amazing workshop called BLOGSHOP here in Dallas. I think it’s fair to say that when you go into a weekend workshop like this, you don’t exactly know what to expect.  Will I be the loner in the back who doesn’t know a soul, and everyone else is fast friends? Will I be able to keep up? Or will I learn anything at all?

Well let me just say, I learned SO much about Photoshop and how to use it to take my blog to the next level.  I am really excited to start implementing some changes (slowly but surely, piece by piece) to make this space more visually appealing and professional.  I really want to focus back in on my initial desire to talk about literature and culture here (while not losing the self searching angle) and have some ideas for regular columns and fun features to do just that .

So the biggest change thus far is obviously a few new graphic pieces (header, buttons, etc) and a tightening up of styles to create a more consistent look. From there, who knows where this will go. All I can say is that I am so excited to start bringing you better content, and hopefully giving you more of what you like about Composing Kate, and less clutter and pointless noise. So tell me what you want to see here!

I also have to say I was so lucky to meet some talented bloggers from the area. It’s amazing the amount of creativity in this area! I’m looking forward to learning more from each of them through their blogging experience. (I’ll update my blogroll with links to their sites soon!)

Thanks for sticking with me as the blog continues to transform, albeit slooowwwwly. And let me know what you think about the changes and if you have ideas on what you’d like to see here!


  1. That is such a cool picture of your chair by the window. Sounds like you had a great experience and got some inspiration. This is the first time I’ve visited your blog and just want to say I love you social media buttons on the side.

  2. The changes so far look fantastic! I love the new header.. too cute. I’m excited to see what you’ve got in store for your site!
