Meet Hugh

Hello, and a very warm welcome to my blog.

#blogger #blogging #wales
Author, Blogger and Writer Hugh W. Roberts

My name is Hugh. I live in the city of Swansea, South Wales, in the United Kingdom.

My blog covers a wide range of subjects, the most popular of which are my posts on blogging tips. I’ve learned a lot about the world of blogging since I first discovered it in February 2014. All of the tips and advice I give are free of charge and will cost you nothing apart from, maybe, your time. To see all my posts that include blogging tips, click on the ‘Blogging Tips’ button on the menu bar.

I have always enjoyed writing, and the fact I suffer from a mild form of dyslexia has not stopped me from enjoying the passion I have for writing. Yes, I get things wrong with my reading and writing, but I now always find those mistakes humorous and always laugh about it. I no longer allow dyslexia get in my way.

Now in my fifties, I thought it about time I let my writing become public. Becoming a blogger seemed to be the perfect way for me to do this. Blogging has put me in touch with hundreds of other writers, many of whom have been supportive and helped me with my writing.

I’m a member of the committee of the Bloggers Bash, a group set up to organise annual get-togethers for all bloggers. Held in London, we had our fourth event in May 2018. Click here to meet the bloggers and authors who attended the event. Details of the 2019 Bloggers Bash have recently been announced. Click here for the details.

I lead a happy life and always try to stay positive. I share my life with John, my wonderful civil partner, and our two Welsh Cardigan Corgis, Toby and Austin.

Did anyone say treats?

I write about life because I find it so fascinating. I have many stories to tell, some of which I have started to put into a book. I think my life has been incredible and I want to share it with anyone who wants to listen. I am also an excellent listener, and I love to be interactive with other people. I guess you could say I am a ‘people person’.

You will find some of my short stories, flash fiction, and poetry 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.

As I mentioned earlier, I also write articles giving free blogging and social media tips. 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.

As much as I appreciate being nominated for blogging awards and tagged in blog posts, I took the decision a few years ago for my blog to become ‘award free’ and to no longer participate in ‘tagging’ posts. 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.

I’m delighted to announce that my first collection of short stories is now available on Amazon. The book is called ‘Glimpses’ and is available as both a paperback and an eBook. The Kindle version is now only 99p.

I’m planning on publishing my second book of short stories, More Glimpses, in early 2019.
