Wednesday Wandering…

I love Helen’s Wednesday Wander series! Please don’t like or comment on my reblog – hop on over and see where she has visited!

Journey To Ambeth

It’s Wednesday again.

This is usually the time of the week when I go on a Wander. However, this week I’ve not had the chance to do my usual hunt for photos and research, despite (or perhaps because of) being out for a wander yesterday.

My Wednesday Wander posts take a bit of work. I enjoy doing them, and haven’t yet run out of places to feature. However, I’ve had a couple of books take me by the throat and demand I write them, so this year my focus will have to shift slightly when it comes to writing.

I do have more travel booked, a holiday planned for April to somewhere I’ve not been before, so I will definitely be writing more Wanders. However, they may not be every week – I hope you don’t mind.

I thought I’d take a look back and see how many Wanders I’ve…

Over the course of the next few months, I will be sharing one of my previous blogging tips posts as part of Twitter’s Throwback Thursday.

This week I’m sharing what you need to do to ensure that you, and not WordPress, are getting the credit for every post of yours that is shared on Twitter. Yes, you do need to open a Twitter account, but you need never use it again once you’ve added your Twitter username to your WordPress blog. Click the following link to go to the post.

* Good news, bad news

One of the many reasons why I never learned to drive… Please don’t like or comment on my reblog – hop on over to Teachezwell and say hello!

Teachezwell Blog

The good news is that I managed to get my car parked at school today before it was enveloped in smoke*.  The bad news is that I had to wait for 3.5 hours for a tow truck.

The good news is that the tow truck had a flatbed for carrying my car.  The bad news is that the driver wouldn’t walk near my car because he disliked muddy potholes.

The good news is that the driver said I drove my car onto his truck better than he’s ever seen before!  The bad news is that he nearly plowed into several cars as we headed for the garage near my house, texting and trying repeatedly to reach his boss by phone.

The good news is that he finally reached his boss.  The bad news is that his diesel truck was in a mileage countdown which would end with us traveling 5…

Hugh's Views & News

If you are new to blogging or are even thinking about starting a blog, here my thirteen quick blogging tips to get you on your way.

  • It’s all about me. Ensure you have an ‘about me’ page. Tell visitors a little about yourself and at least give them a name by which they can call you. However, don’t have an ‘about me’ page that starts off by saying ‘This Is An Example Of An About Me Page’. Click here to read about setting up an ‘about me’ page and what it should include.
  • Make a journey outside of your own blog. I’ve always been amazed by just what information is out there in the blogging world. I’ve learned how to self-publishing a book, how to use social media and make it work for me, how to bake gin & tonic cupcakes, take great photos and, of course, picked up lots…
