    1. I’m sure it can if you can find a few bloggers in the area. That is how we started our Bloggers Bash. However, although two of the committee live in the London area, one lives in Ireland and I am now in Wales. Distance didn’t stop us from organising it but you do need to form a committee to set it all up. Good luck with it if you decide to try and arrange something.

      1. Wow! That’s awesome. I’ll definitely do that. Maybe at some point, we can come down to London to attend the meet up with your group there

  1. Hi Hugh! Wow! I can’t believe how excited I was seeing these videos, listening to everyone’s voices and watching all the different gestures, facial expressions, laughs, and personalities. I wish I could have been there! This is a beautiful thing you and the others did, Hugh. ❤

    1. They were all such great sports when I asked them to line up so that I could record a few words from them. The video seems to have gone down very well with bloggers who were not able to make the meeting or for those that could not make it simply because of distance. Who knows, maybe next year’s video will be an hours long! 🙂

  2. So lovely to see so many bloggers coming together. What a beautiful event, one I am sad to have missed. So many familiar faces, too! Loving the vlog, too. You’re a natural! I can hear a slight accent, but I’m rubbish with accents so I won’t embarrass myself and try and guess what it is! 😁

    May I ask…will you be doing something like this again?

    1. Another VLOG – no. 🙂

      Another Bloggers Bash – Yes 🙂

      We’ll certainly be arranging another Bloggers Bash for next year, Amanda. Watch out for the announcements of dates and location over the coming months. We’re planning the next one well ahead so that hopefully more people can make it.

  3. Thank you for giving us faces to go with the names! I wish I could have been there. And I just love everyone’s accents. I’m sure that’s a very American thing to say but hey, I have an awful Midwest sound going on here. 🙂

    1. It would have been delightful for you to have been there as well, Kat. There seems to be quite a gang of you from overseas who would have loved to have joined in the event. Nothing quite like a British accent, but then I don’t really notice it much 🙂

      Now I have done my first VLOG, I may just do a few more 🙂

    1. Yes, wasn’t it, Debby? Everyone was a great sport that day in allowing me to video them. Nobody knew I had that planned, so nobody had time to say ‘no’. I can be quite evil sometimes 🙂

    1. Hi Marjorie, I was so pleased that all you guys were happy to appear on video and to tell the blogging world who you all were. Yes, it was great fun to do, and I owe it to you all that nobody was too shy to appear on the videos. They really do seem to have gone down very well.

      I love the new name you’ve given me – ‘huggable Hugh’ 🙂 I’ll remember that.

      Thank you so much for the reblog.

      1. Huggable Hugh just seems so apt, all you need to do is take the h off the end of your name and Voilà you have – hug! Perfect!
        I’m pushing my boundaries Hugh, I’m basically a shy kind of gal but managed to appear on the video. It was great the way it was just sprung upon us if we had to think about it in advance it wouldn’t have been so natural. So pleased to reblog Hugh. 🙂

        1. Ah yes, but I’ve also had people replace that ‘h’ with an ‘e’ so I’ve become Huge! Many a time I’ve had mail addressed to me as ‘Huge Roberts’. You have to laugh at it though.

          Well join the ‘shy gang’ with me. I know! Me shy? You would never have thought it would you? 🙂 Huggable Hugh is certainly my favourite.

        2. Ah I prefer Huggable Hugh to huge Hugh! Happy to be in the ‘shy gang’ with you Hugh! But I would have never guessed you were shy! You sure talk a lot for a shy guy! Tee hee!

        3. lol, I know, don’t I? I think it’s all down to nerves. I was very nervous before meeting everyone that day. Put me in a room full of strangers and I fade away into the background. I think being on the committee helped because, although I had never met Ali, Geoff, and Sacha, we had had video calls to discuss the event. Then again every single person at the event on Saturday was so warm and friendly. We were all like long lost friends meeting up after years of not seeing each other.

        4. You Ali, Geoff and Sacha did a great job. If you were nervous it didn’t show, very professional! Yes you’re right everyone was so friendly, and the hugs were plentiful! That’s bloggers for you, we have already crossed the getting to know you stage from our talking/reading our blogs, so it was like meeting old friends. 🙂

  4. Reblogged this on kyrosmagica and commented:
    Reblog of The Bloggers Bash videos, courtesy of our very own huggable Hugh at Hughs Views and News. A bunch of bloggers talking on video. I sound about ten, well I write for kids so that’s okay I suppose!

  5. The videos are a great idea. I loved seeing everyone looking so happy and having a wonderful time. I’m pleased to hear you are planning on doing it again.

    1. I was as shocked as you Norah, in that nobody seemed to mind me thrusting an iPhone into their face while asking them to say who they were. It was great fun and they were all greats sports.

      Yes, an event for next year has already been mentioned. I’m sure it will take place.

  6. Fabulous! Amazing! Wish I had been there… well, said that from the outset. Mhmm…maybe I’ll escape the next Australian winter to warm London? I have thoroughly enjoyed the reports of the Bash… Oh, bloggers are real people that can speak? 😉

    1. Thanks Florence. It was indeed a huge success, and so lovely to meet the people behind the blogs. Yes, they were real people (thank goodness), although there were reports from Geoff of a spy amongst the group.

      See you here next year…I hope 🙂

  7. Thanks so much for the videos, Hugh. Such a great idea. It is so lovely to see faces and hear voices…a real treat. ☺ It looks like it was a real success. How could it not be ?? Van

    1. You’re welcome Van. It was Colleen who actually suggested I video the event, and I’m so glad she did.

      It was a great success and I’ve no doubt that we’ll be holding another event next year.
