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.


People of Milton Keynes…

….I need your help!!

I need people that are local to MK to let me know of ANY building projects going on within the Town that you know of please, For a new website I’m working on.

It can be anything from a new block of flats to the remodelling of a roundabout, I just need to know what it is and where.

You can either leave your replies as a comment to this post or email me directly.


Thanks everyone!!

Can you see me?! UPDATE

Well the GPS tracking thing seemed to work quite well today.

According to the data, Between 11:08 and 18:38 I traveled 38.3 Miles, at an average speed of 5mph (!!!), and my Max Speed at any one time was 41mph. The average speed might be a bit inaccurate as there were two one hour breaks within that time.

Anyway, I’ve decided to have another go at it tomorrow, between the hours or 1500 – 1940, So don’t forget to log and look again.. and Please comment on it, I might add it as a permanent feature of the blog

I doubt anyone that reads this actually goes into this shop, But on Friday I was charged a price more than the Shelf label, When complaining I was just told “That’s what’s on the Till”.. The forth or fifth time this has happened now! I thought there was some law that stated they had to charge what the display price on the shelf was?!

Anyway, Don’t buy from this shop!!!
