Because I am currently still employed with a machine builder and integrator here in Nashville I have purposely kept this site pretty low key. I will be leaving the company in December (at the latest) and will be devoting more time this Fall to the website. My book “The Automation Primer” is making good progress, I am on chapter 7 but have only posted part of the first three chapters here. I plan on posting more of it over the next few months and I am hoping for some constructive criticism before I get it ready for publishing next year.
Another dilemma I have: as some have noticed, when I travel I tend to have less time to craft a proper post. I am headed to Tucson again in a couple of weeks for work and will probably be able to post fairly easily from there, but in January I am planning on a month-long trip to Central America and will have a much more difficult time posting interesting articles. I will really need some help and I am hoping to meet some contacts who are interested in guest writing some applications or informational posts. All you would need to do is send me an e-mail with some interesting automation stuff in it and I will format it complete with links to your site. As I mentioned above, this is a great opportunity to get some free advertisement and website traffic. As I start to promote this site more this Fall it will almost certainly start seeing a lot more traffic and this might be a good move for some entrepreneurial sort.
In short, I am looking for feedback on all aspects of this site; ease of use, relevance of posts, is there useful and interesting information here, what can I do to improve the site/ increase traffic? I will be seeking professional website and promotional help in September or October this year but would really appreciate some feedback from anyone using this site. Drop me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to talk about it!
