From The World Of Blogging – Edition 1

Welcome to my third new feature, for 2017, here on Hugh’s Views & News.

From The World Of Blogging

As bloggers, not only do we write and publish posts, but we also need to read and comment on the posts published by other bloggers. ‘From The World Of Blogging’ will feature blog posts I’ve thoroughly enjoyed reading and commented on, as well as snippets of news I’d like to share with you.

First up, is a beautifully written post from Esther Newton. In ‘A Trip Down Memory Lane’ Esther reflects not only on the last moments of the life of her Grandfather but shares with us some wise words he asked her to promise to keep. A moving piece of writing that may bring a tear to the eye, Esther really brings out her feelings and manages to portray them to the reader. Check her post out by clicking here.

If you’re looking for some well thought-out and excellent blogging tips to spruce up your blog in 2017, then look no further than the blogs of Debby Kaye and Terri Webster Schrandt. In her article ‘Are You Maximising Your Blog’s Visual Appeal Using Widgets?’, Debby looks into the world of blog widgets, as well as listing some simple ideas that make our blogs more inviting to first-time visitors.

Terri Webster Schrandt wrote and published a post entitled ‘Eight Simple Ideas To Inspire Your Blogging.’ As in the title, these are simple to do tips every blogger should consider trying out in order to bring more readers to their blog.

On to some news from around the blogging world. This week, Erika Kind announced a brand new project with the opening of her online store. Packed with lots of products, it’s a great place to buy a gift for those who love inspirational quotes. If you don’t know it, Erika publishes her own daily inspirational quotes on her blog; many of which I have used in my own personal life. Check out Erika’s news of her online store by clicking here.

  1. There is so much good information here that I’m going to save this page and keep referring back to it. Life is requiring small bites these days. Thank you for all the work you put into this. I’ll be back soon.


  2. Hugh, thank you so so very much for including me in your post. Sorry, that I am coming here so late! I just found the pingback… guess where… yes… spam! But that is an even bigger surprise and it honors me a lot that you mentioned my venture! Hugging you strongly 💖


    1. Seems some of my pingbacks for this post went to WordPress spam folders, Erika, but thank goodness all my comments aren’t. I thought I’d been captured by the spam monster again. 😱

      I wish you every success with your new online venture. May it go from strength to strength.
