About Me

Ever wondered what it’s like to live with a Stutter? Do you struggle to balance Stress with day to day life? Have you ever gone through something which has impacted on your Mental Health?

Hello and Welcome to Sweeney’s Blogs!

I am James Sweeney, I created Sweeney’s Blogs and I am the main writer for the page. I am a student at the University of Reading and am originally from Swansea. The pages main purpose is to discuss topics that are often swept under the carpet and to shed new light on common misconceptions about Stuttering, Stress and Mental Health. We are going to be “Highlighting the I in Difference” and showing that individuality is something that should be valued, not overlooked.


The majority of the blogs on this page are going to be about Stuttering, Stress and Mental Health. What I am hoping to do is mix factual information with personal experience to give a fair and balanced reflection of the world and society today. I do have to stress that I am not trained in any way to do this and if I do use facts and figures in blogs then they will be researched and referenced.

I am aiming to do 2 blogs a week, one at the start of the week and then one at the end. The blogs at the start of the week will usually be a part of a series of blogs on the page, which can all be found on the Blogapedia page, and the second blog in the week will more than likely be an individual one. There may be times when I do more or less than 2 a week, but that is what I am aiming to do.


Guest blogs are something that I would love to have more of on the page! If you have an idea or a story that you think will make a great blog/ blog series then please get in touch! We can discuss if you want to write the post, we both write it or I write the post and check it with you before publishing. More information can be found here:

We do have a Spotify playlist for the page as well! I am hoping to update the playlist as and when I can so if you have any suggestions for songs, please let me know! The songs can be from any genre and can be from any year you would like! You can find the Spotify playlist by searching Sweeney’s Blogs on Spotify or through this button:

If anyone has any questions about me, any of the blogs that I have written, or anything else that you can think of please get in touch! You can do this via accessing the Facebook page Sweeney’s Blogs, emailing SweeneyBlogs@outlook.com or using the Contact Form on the Contact page.

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy the blogs!

James Sweeney
