Please ignore the last “published” post on aspiblog – I pressed the wrong button when I intended merely to save what I had already done, so it is incomplete.

I am branch secretary of NAS West Norfolk and #actuallyautistic (diagnosed 10 years ago at the comparatively advanced age of 31). I am a keen photographer, so that most of my own posts contain photos. I am a keen cricket fan and often write about that subject. I also focus a lot on politics and on nature.

  1. Have you ever thought of spinning your Tube content out onto a separate, standalone blog? I can host unlimited WP sites on my server, and I could front up for a domain name if you found one you liked.

    I haven’t researched it, and I don’t know whether there are many tube-focused blogs, but I can imagine it being a niche where it would be possible to attract traffic and legit advertising, and get free tickets to things and stuff, and trips into the secret tunnels. You could also look at affiliates like The London Pass and London hotel booking sites, and AdSense, once you built traffic and content, and selling memorabilia and tube geek things via Amazon.

    Obviously just a thought. WP.com sites perform terribly on search and are impossible to monetise but I can imagine that with the right domain name and a responsive theme and various other things like much smaller image sizes (run a page of your site through Google Page Speed Insights to see how Google sees it) and perhaps using some creative commons images (from Flickr), that could do quite well.

    But I’d have a look on Google and see who else is doing stuff in that niche.
