Finding the ten best industrial Blogs in the UK

I will even send you a logo
to put on your Blog! Can't say
fairer than that. 
Inspired by a recent post on Social Media Today, about the ten best corporate Blogs in the world, I’ve decided to go looking for the ten best industrial, engineering, technical or scientific Blogs in the UK. This is where you, dear reader, come in.

If you write a Blog for the business you work for, or run, or you are a marketing consultant that has helped a client set up a Blog that you are particularly proud of, just get in touch and let me know. If you don't want to get in touch directly, feel free to leave a comment on this Blog post. I’ll be compiling a list over the next couple of months or so.

By the way, I’m only including Blogs about industry itself, but if you are a consultant serving industry and you want to let me know about a Blog you write, feel free. I’ll build a separate list for these. And of course, if you are a technical business that needs a Blog, get in touch.

Looking forward to the list. My FactoryAutomation blog is loosely tied to Kendall Electric a Rockwell Automation distributor.

The Spirent Positioning Blog is aimed at being a reference site for the GPS and GNSS simulation market and was launched last year. We're using it to ask - and answer - all the questions about our area of expertise which people are searching on the web for. The traffic from Google has been really encouraging, and now forms a large proportion of the overall search engine traffic to our site, so the blog has really helped Spirent to reinforce its position as the authority in our field.

Here at Orthos Process Equipment, we took the opportunity to incorporate a blog for the process engineering community as part of a new website in 2010. It's been a great learning experience, but we've relished the opportunity to blog "live" from industry events where we've been exhibiting, which in turn shows new visitors to our site what an active company we are. The blog is written entirely in-house, and we think gives a real personality to the company.

Ion Science launched a blog last summer as part of a move to create a user community. It appears closely integrated into the website, but is actually run on a separate (Wordpress) platform which drives RSS, Twitter and email distribution. We've used it to host some different types of content which are new to us and which might struggle to find a home on our conventional website, such as equipment maintenance videos and a professional interview with our managing director. The blog is being run in-house with support from Chris Rand and the team at Business Marketing Online (BMON).

Here at the CLPA Europe organisation we've been running a blog (http://www.cc-link-news.eu/) to increase the awareness of the CC-Link industrial network for the past few months. The blog has an email subscription list, as well as RSS and Twitter feeds, and has been increasing traffic steadily every month.
