Hello, and a warm welcome to my blog.
My name is Hugh. I live in Swansea, South Wales, in the United Kingdom.
My blog covers a wide range of subjects, the most popular of which are my blogging tips posts. I’ve learned a lot about the world of blogging since I first came here in February 2014. All of the tips and advice I give are free of charge.
I have always enjoyed writing, and I suffer from a mild form of dyslexia which has not stopped me from enjoying my writing passion.
Blogging has put me in touch with hundreds of other writers, many of whom have been supportive and helped me with my writing.

More about Hugh
I lead a happy life and always stay positive. I share my life with John, my civil partner, and our two Cardigan Welsh Corgis, Toby and Austin.
Austin and Toby.
You will find some of my short stories and flash fiction on my blog, and I hope you enjoy reading them. Flash Fiction has become a big part of my writing, and I enjoy participating in various writing challenges.
Blogging is a marathon, not a sprint!
Blogging and Social Media Tips
As I mentioned earlier, I also write articles giving free blogging and social media tips. Click on the ‘Blogging Tips’ and ‘Block Editor – How To’ buttons on the menu bar to access all my articles.
These articles have proved very popular. My free tips are a way of thanking everyone that supports my blog by visiting, reading and commenting on my posts.
If you have any questions about blogging, let me know what they are. I may respond with a new post featuring you and your blog.
Blogging Awards and Tags
As much as I appreciate being nominated for blogging awards and tagged in blog post challenges, I decided my blog to become ‘award free’ and no longer participate in ‘tagging’ challenges on here or on social media.
You can read why I took this decision by clicking here. However, I’d like to thank everybody who has (and who still does) nominated me.

Hugh, I’m happy I cam across your blog. I had a blog several years ago that grew to a pretty good size, but I deleted it and took a break. So now I’m back and looking for ways to grow and connect with blogging communities. Your tips will be a big help!
Hi Amy, thanks so much for connecting with me.
Good to hear you have come back to blogging after taking a break.
I hope you find plenty of blogging tips that will help. I’ve been blogging for 8 1/2 years and love to share what I learn about the blogging world. Don’t hesitate to ask me any blogging questions. I’m always happy to help.
