Guest and Freelance Blogging at

As the internet's most popular independent industrial automation blog, is a great place to share your knowledge and expertise with our audience of electricians and electrical engineers working in the industrial automation field.

Since we launched our focus has been to publish practical, down to earth articles and videos on using automation, whether it be a step-by-step guides, troubleshooting common issues, Q & A's, or reviewing products and features.

Unlike other industrial automation websites and magazine, all of our content is aimed squarely at those installing, programming, and troubleshooting industrial automation products on a daily basis, and not the “suites” most other automation websites and publications target.

Guest and Freelance Bloggers Welcome

Over the years we've opened our site to both guest and freelance bloggers, and we currently divide the two as detailed below:

  • Guest Bloggers: We define guest bloggers simply as unpaid contributors. Reasons why contributors would choose to publish an article with us as guest blogger include that they may work for the company that their article is about, or that their company does not allow it's employees to do freelance work after hours. Note that while we do accept guest blogs from companies who would like to share content about how to use their products with our audience, their articles must meet the same criteria of all our content: It must be helpful, interesting, and not a sales pitch.

  • Freelance bloggers: We also hire “Freelance Writers” who work in the industrial automation industry and wish to share their knowledge and experience with others while getting paid for their contributions. The requirements for the work they submit is that it's helpful, interesting, and for exclusive publication on
