Another Quick update

another quick update from me.

As I’ve posted many times on here before, I’ve thought about seperating my blog into two seperate blogs, One for buses and one for personal stuff.  Each time I’ve  thought about it it’s kind of gone to the back of my mind as soon as I begin to realise what a pain in the arse its going to be to do….

So I’ve now decided not to seperate it, But leave it with you the reader to decide on what you see.

At the top of the screen in the green bar, You can now choose to just see bus related posts, or no buses at all :)

If you are not fussed or like reading both types then just come here as normal :)

 

Training progresses at LM with me now doing my on the train training, Currently working through my route knowledge which I’m finding tough in places but plenty of revising at home seems to be doing the trick!

 

On the bus side, News reaches me of plans for a N5 night bus in MK from mid July, Once I have more details I’ll post here.

 

Not much else been going on, Sold my Macbook Air as I just could get on with it for £750 on ebay and used the money to buy me a nice new windows Laptop, some decent headphones, iPhone dock and still have some money left over!

A Change

Well I think I can finally reveal that I will be leaving Arriva Shortly and moving to the Railways.

 

My current job is being made part time due to costs, So I think that this new position has come about at just the right time! 

I shall be moving to London Midland (successful references permitting) to be a Senior Conductor (Guard) which I’m really looking forward to.

 

My blog will still continue and still be mainly bus orientated.  Once I have left the company I will no longer have to be so restrained on what I write on this site.

I have a number of people that will still be informing me of goings on, route changes, day to day stuff on the road etc, So as a reader there should be no change apart from a bit of extra Train related stuff.

Time for a “refresh”

I’ve started to notice that I’m getting more and more visitors looking for timetables for buses in Milton Keynes, Even though the MK Council and Arriva sites have them all available and rank much higher on google when searching.

At the moment, I just copy over the MKC page and link to that, I’m starting to wonder if it would be in my interest to tap into this generated traffic, Which then may in turn be worth a few quid with an advert or two. (I’m not talking about plastering the site with banner ads, and I certainly didn’t create this blog to make money, But something that covers the cost of hosting wouldn’t be too bad.)

This blog has always been about me and my job with a bit of Public Transport information thrown in alongside, I’ve toyed with the idea of creating a blog within a blog for the Information section, But don’t think I would have the time to keep it fresh and upto date.

Is there anyone out there that is ofay with WordPress that would be interested in helping with that side of things? Someone that could put up bus news etc?  Nothing confirmed yet, Just thinking out aloud really but would be interesting to see if there is any interest.

hummmmmmmmm………
