Guest Blogging Policy

The Automation Blog is now open to guest bloggers!

Why? Well, by allowing and encouraging “guest blogging” we’re able to provide even more helpful information to our readers!

Each guest blog has the potential to expand our coverage, as well as introduce our audience to a wider range of products, knowledge, and expertise.

So if you’d like to become a guest blogger on The Automation Blog, first read our guest blogging guidelines below, and if you still wish to contribute use this contact link to let us know what you’d like to guest post about!

  • Articles must be on the topic of industrial automation 😉

  • Articles should be submitted in a format which Microsoft Word 2013 can open (most word processing programs can export to an MSWord .doc or .docx.)

  • Articles must be original works not previously published elsewhere.

    • If you’ve written an article elsewhere that you think our readers would like, please let us know and we may share it depending on the content and our publication schedule.
    • If you would like to share news about new products and product obsolesce, let us know and we may share it depending on the content and publication schedule.


  • Articles should provide information helpful to our readers. Examples include:

    • How-to work around articles on technical issues using industrial automation products.
    • How you deployed an industrial automation product in a real world application.

  • A link to your website, company website, or social media profile can also be included in your “about the author” paragraph.

  • All guest blog submissions are reviewed by The Automation Blog’s editors for approval, and they may contact you about edits prior to passing your article on to be scheduled.

  • If approved by our editors, the scheduling of your article will be handled by our publisher who will attempt to give you as much notice as possible as to when your article will appear.

  • Finally, all guest bloggers who have their articles approved and scheduled are highly encouraged to monitor and answer any reader questions posted in response to their article.

  1. Good morning Ari,

    I’d be more than happy to answer both your questions, but could you please re-post them as a comment to the below article as this article isn’t quite the right place for that question?

    Thanks in advance,

    Shawn Tierney
