Sweeney’s Stuttering Story – The Call

Today’s blog is going to be a little bit different to the usual kind of blog that I write. The blog is going to be focused around a story which happened to me around 4-5 weeks ago, which played a really large role in the increase of the amount that I stutter over the last couple of weeks.

I mentioned in last weeks blog that I was going to talk about it this and, even though it is quite a personal story, I still feel like the messages that we can take from it are very important. It may seem like a very sad story when you read through the first few paragraphs, but there’s always a lesson and a moment of reflection that we can take from moments like this.

So without further ado, this is Sweeney’s Stuttering Story – The Call.

My Stuttering Episode on the “It Starts with Action” Podcast!

Being a part of a podcast has been something that I have always wanted to do in life, however, due to my Stutter, I always thought that this dream was out of my reach, but now I have proved myself wrong! This week I starred in an episode of the “It Starts with Action” podcast, where I talk about a large array of different things, and is going to be what today’s blog is about!

So without further ado,

Hello and Welcome to Sweeney’s Blogs!

Content Schedule Update – April 2020

Hello and Welcome to Sweeney’s Blogs!

Today’s blog is a content schedule blog update for the page! For the past 23 days I have been doing a blog a day but that is now going to be changing! I am going to be reverting back to 2/3 blogs a week for the next few weeks!

I have really enjoyed doing a blog a day and felt like I have covered a lot of different content topics but feel like now is a good time to revert back to the older posting schedule. I have a lot of University work on at the moment and as Exams are just around the corner I want to put myself in the best possible position for them going forward.

Posting every day is something that I wish I could do more of but with the current set up it is just not practical or realistic. I am using the new lockdown time to relax and refocus myself but at the minute it feels like I post at times just for the sake of posting, and that is not what I want to be doing. i want to ensure that all the content that I publish on the page is done to a very high standard and this revised schedule will allow me to do that.

In terms of what content will be released on the page next week, at this current point in time I am thinking of sticking to the active series that I have on the page currently. This means that I am hoping to keep posting new blogs in the “What do we mean by Success?” series as well as in the “Ideas for Lockdown” series. Currently I am not sure how long both series will be, I will have to wait and see what ideas I come up with for them.

If I do find a very good blog that I want to share or I get a guest blog through for the page the schedule can be altered accordingly. If a big event happens that needs a blog too I will change the schedule around to fit that. I will keep everyone updated on what is happening with the page as soon as I know myself and I hope you are all alright with me going back to the old posting schedule. I need to try and focus some more time on myself and my University work and I feel like this solution will allow me to do both whilst also posting good quality content on the page!

That’s all I want to talk about in today’s blog! Thank you all for reading! What do you think? Are you happy to see the old schedule come back? Are there any topics that you want me to write about? Is there a series idea that you have that you want to talk through with me? Let me know your answers to the questions above and any other questions or comments that you may have either through the comments on this blog or through our Facebook page!

Thank you all for reading and I hope you have a great day!

Sweeney’s Blogs has over 8,000 views!

Hello and Welcome to Sweeney’s Blogs!

As of Saturday last week, Sweeney’s Blogs has now passed over 8,000 total views! It is an absolutely amazing milestone for the page and is a great reflection of all the work that we have been doing recently! I started the page back on the 3rd February 2019 and we have already got so many more views than I originally thought possible!

I just wanted to say a big thanks to everyone who has helped support the page, be that through reading the blogs, writing blogs, commenting on your thoughts on the page and so much more. All the help that I receive on the page is greatly appreciated and ultimately helps make the page better for everyone!

The way that I write blogs has dramatically changed since I started the page and that is all down to experience and learning where I go wrong in the past. Some of my earlier blogs have had a bit of an update recently as I thought I could improve them a little bit and make them more consistent with the rest of the conent!

As I was updating all of my blog series, by giving them all their own pages, I edited a few of the blogs to fix any mistakes that were there or if there was a part that I thought I could write better, I reworded it to make the overall flow nicer!

In terms of what you can expect to see on the page in the next few weeks, I have a lot of content planned. The What do we mean by Success series is still running on the page and will be going for another few weeks. I also started the Ideas for Lockdown series on Saturday and the next blog for that will be coming tomorrow.

I will be starting a few series in the next few weeks/months but at the minute I am not sure which order I am going to release them in. I am looking to start a series about the real life of students where I give a real view of the University experience from someone who has been in the position of a student living away from home. I do have a lot more series ideas that I am thinking of and when I have a definite plan for when they are going to be posted, I will let you all know!

That’s all I want to talk about in today’s blog! Thank you all for reading and I hope you have enjoyed! Thank you all for over 8,000 views too, I really appreciate it! I have done a blog a day for the past 16 days now so we’ll see how long I can keep it going for!

Thank you all for reading and I hope you have a great day,

Sweeney’s Blogs Spotify Playlist

Hello and Welcome to Sweeney’s Blogs!

Today’s blog is all about the playlist that I have made for Sweeney’s Blogs on Spotify. The playlist has been around a while but I am not sure if people know about it or not. I first made the playlist to have on in the background while I was writing blogs but now it is evolving into something bigger and better.

The playlist is now over 17 hours long and is available for anyone who wants to hear it! Whether you would like it on in the background while you read blogs, go for a run or just while you are chilling out and listening to music, Sweeney’s Blogs playlist is the playlist for you! The playlist is updated every week or so as well so there will always be something new to listen to on there!

You can find the playlist through Spotify by typing in Sweeney’s Blogs or via the following link: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/0o8E5x2GB0yqct6FlVIhOj?si=ydE2_FzbR7G6oeFFbf0Pfw

When I first made the playlist I mixed a lot of different genres of music as well as music from the 1960s all the way through to now! Hopefully we have sings in there that match everybody’s taste, if we don’t let us know and I will try and add some more!

The playlist is just a little extra thing that I thought would be nice to run alongside the blogs and it is a lot of fun to make! What I like to do when the weather is as nice as it has been recently is just stick the playlist on, connect to a speaker and just relax in the garden, chilling out. With the sun out, music playing and drink in hand, where can you go wrong? The answer is that you can never go wrong!

As with everything I do on this page, feedback and comments are always appreciated. If there is any song/artist that you would like to see me add or remove from the playlist and I will see what I can do! I always aim to keep the playlist as family friendly as possible so everyone can listen to the playlist, regardless of their age!

That’s all I want to talk about in today’s blog! Thank you all for reading! Feel free to check out the playlist if you are interested! We have now had a blog a day on the page for 2 weeks straight! Let’s see how long I can keep it going for! I hope you are all enjoying all of the blogs and new pages that I have been making! Let me know what you would like to see next!

Thanks for reading and I hope you have a great day,
