Hello, and a very warm welcome to my blog.
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 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 and will cost you nothing apart from a little bit of your time.
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.
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 currently on a blogging break until the end of July 2019. When I return, it will with lots of new ideas and posts.
The Bloggers Bash
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 fifth event in June 2019. Details of the event will be posted soon. In the meantime, you can check out details of the event on my social media accounts by clicking here and here.
More about Hugh
I lead a happy life and always try to stay positive. I share my life with John, my civil partner, and our two Cardigan Welsh Corgis, Toby and Austin.
Austin and Toby.
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 enjoy being interactive with people. I guess you could say I am a ‘people person’.
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 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 ‘Gutenberg – 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 brand new post that could feature you and your blog.
Blogging Awards and Tags
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 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.
I have also taken the decision to no longer publish book reviews on my blog, so please do not send me any requests to review books. You will find lots of book review blogs and book bloggers on WordPress and other blogging platforms. Please save yourself some time and send your book review requests to them rather than to me.
My first collection of short stories is available on Amazon. Glimpses is available as both a paperback and an eBook and contains 28 short stories and flash fiction full of twists, turns, and unexpected endings. The Kindle version is 99p.
