Webpages/webapps working with relays/sensors. E.g. controlling a model railway/displaying telemetry of a model aircraft. Or registration/statistic pages for Archery/Curling contests.So @wlanboy, what sort of client work is it that you are doing instead of the blog stuff?
Or you can place a referral link in an email to them and point them to bluehost/hostgator/etc. you will be able to make some more money on the side. Plus, those companies will not go anywhere anytime soon.i usually let my clients buy their own shared hosting. i tell them its beneficial for them because they don't have dependency on small-timer like me, and they are worry free if i'm still here in a few months or year.
its also beneficial for me, because i avoid headache of clients bugging me.
