I’ve always been an early bird, even when it comes to Christmas. Shopping in the summer sales for Christmas gifts is a hit with me. But I’m not here to talk about myself today (well, not a lot, anyway). No, I’m here to talk about some of you.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everybody who has visited, commented, reblogged, shared, liked and taken the time to visit Hugh’s Views And News. There are so many of you I’d like to mention, but this post would be the longest post ever if I did that, so I’m going to mention a few.
First up, Robbie, from Robbie’s Inspiration, who was the winner of a lovely book donated by Charles Waugh at the recent Glimpses prelaunch blog party. Congratulations Robbie and thank you, Charles, for donating the prize of your book.
Sue Vincent’s blog, Sue Vincent’s Daily Echo, has been nominated for the UK blog awards for 2017. Congratulations to Sue (and Ani) for being nominated. Voting closes at 10:00 (GMT) on 19th December so, at the time of writing this, there’s still time to go on over and give Sue and Ani your vote. Click here for all the details.
There are a few blog parties currently on the circuit, one of which is over at Donna’s blog, Yadadarcyyada. Teagan, over at Teagan’s Books, has just launched a new book and is celebrating by holding a 1920s themed blog party. And today, Marje, over at Kyrosmagica, is holding a Xmas ice skating blog party. So, if you’re up for a party over the Christmas period, then get yourself over to these blog parties and introduce yourself and your blog to all the other blogger guests already there. Blogging parties are a great way to get followers and meet lots of other bloggers.
I’ve not known author Tina Frisco very long, but she has already been fantastic in promoting Glimpses and my writing. Tina is another author who has just launched a new book, VAMPYRIE: Origin Of The Vampire, which is now available to buy on Amazon. Thank you to Tina for all the support she has given to me over the last few months. I wish you lots of success with your new book.
Steve, over at Steve Says…, was very kind in inviting me over to his radio studio last Friday evening. We talked about all sorts of stuff between playing my top five festive and non-festive tunes. There’s now a podcast available of the show, so if you’re up for listening to some silliness over the festive season then grab yourself a drink and have a listen to the show. Click on the link below to go to the podcast page.
I’m going to be taking a bit of a blogging break in the run up to Christmas. However, I will be back in time to witness Big Ben doing his stuff and welcoming in the New Year! Before then, watch out for a post I’ll be publishing tomorrow which will contain a clue to the anagram riddle I’ve set in my Glimpses Competition.
Finally, I couldn’t finish without mentioning this lovely quote from Brigid, which I found over at her blog, Watching The Daisies. It speaks for itself and reminds us all to take a well-earned break. Click here to see the quote.
