About Me

Ever wondered what it’s like to live with a stutter? Have you got an interest in Mental Health or ever struggled with Managing Stress?

Welcome to Sweeney’s Blogs!

I am James Sweeney, the owner of Sweeney’s Blogs, I am a student at the University of Reading and I am originally from Swansea in Wales. This page has been created to discuss the topics that are often swept under the carpet and to shed new light on common misconceptions about Mental Health. Here at Sweeney’s Blogs, we are going to be highlighting the I in difference and showing that individuality is something to be valued, not afraid of.

Some of the topics we are going to be talking about on the page consist of Stuttering, Stress and Mental Health. I have a lot of experience with difference Mental health problems and I have overcome problems with stress in the past which lead in my belief that if we mix both factual information with personal experience then we can paint topics such as Mental Health into a much clearer picture.

In regards to the schedule for the age, I aim to do at least 2 blogs a week. These blogs are usually split into 1 at the start of the week and then one at the end. The blog at the start of the week is usually part of a series that I am running and takes a look at different ideas and thoughts at a new angle. The blog at the end of the week can be a normal bog or it could be a reblog of another bloggers post. The blogging community has some really interesting stories and experiences and I think that sharing these stories can help make society improve.

Guest blogs are something that I highly encourage people to do. There is already a blog post up on the page, can be found here: https://sweeneysblog.com/2019/06/21/guest-blogs-and-page-updates/, which talks about what guest blogs are and how they can be a very valuable tool to use in the future. If anyone has an idea for a blog or has written one and wants me to publish it please get in touch, any idea is welcome!

We do also have a Spotify playlist for the page. The playlist has songs ranging from 1960-today so hopefully, there will be a few songs in it that you enjoy listening too! I will be looking to update the playlist every so often so if you can think of any songs that you want on there or want to be removed from the playlist, please let me know! You can find the playlist by typing in Sweeney’s Blogs on Spotify or through this link: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/0o8E5x2GB0yqct6FlVIhOj?si=n52SSSG7SaSwSWSuhum4SQ

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

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