You may have noticed that things have changed a little bit around here...

At the start of this year I made a promise to myself (and you) that I would be around more and blog way more frequently than I had been. Well, since I made that decision seven months ago I haven't really been feeling blogging. I don't know what it is. I don't have the answer as to why I've felt this way. I used to love to take photographs and write - and I still do, don't get me wrong - it just feels like things have become a bit stagnant as of late. A change was in order.

And so here we are. The Last Souvenir has undergone a makeover and I'm really pleased with the result! I popped on over to the trusty guys at Pipdig and they were so helpful in achieving what I wanted for my redesign. I wanted to make my little corner of the internet look a lot more grown-up and professional, while still providing a bit of fun. Categories are easier to find and the whole place is so much more user-friendly. There are obviously still a few kinks to iron out but I figured I would fix those along the way, learning as I go. I'm looking forward to shaking things up and posting a whole lot more.

I'm hoping this will truly give me the proverbial kick up the backside I need to get inspired. Blogging is still a hobby to me, something that I can escape to, and I hate that there is now so much pressure and competition within the community. That is by no means a rant on anyone in particular. In fact, I feel like everyone is putting out some bloody fantastic content right now and it's really intimidating to me to be jumping back in head first. Still, I can only hope that my content is up to the standard people have come to expect from me. I'm sure you will tell me if it's not!

Oh and I really appreciate all your kind words on Twitter and Instagram lately. It's lovely to have people to turn to when you're not feeling up to it, and great to know that people will still read regardless of your absence. I'm also going to try so hard to catch up with all the latest chats - I miss those a lot.

So what do you guys think? I'm always open to your opinions, and if there's something in particular you'd like to see then please do leave me a comment and I'll see what I can do.



  1. We love how nicely the redesign has worked for your blog Katie! The layout really suits your photography, style and general colourway. Very nice choice indeed!

  2. I totally get what you mean about the pressures of blogging! I sometimes compare my blog to others and honestly feel like giving up with it. I imagine everyone has fazes of that though so don't worry! Also, loving the redesign! X
