IoT For All is dedicated to providing the highest-quality, unbiased content, resources, and news happening in the Internet of Things (IoT) and related disciplines such as AI, VR/AR, data science, telecommunications, and so forth. All content must offer a good, clear answer to “how will reading this be valuable to me?”. Good answers include: It’s educational, it’s informative, it provides useful resources to the reader, or it’s entertaining. Ideally, it’s a combination of these.
Keeping an approachable voice in mind does not negate the need for originality in articles. Articles generally covering either long-standing or popular topics in IoT likely are already covered on our site. When in doubt, more specificity in the topic is typically better. For example, rather than covering how IoT is involved in smart cities, cover cybersecurity risks associated with connecting city utilities to the internet.
We do allow crossposting. Keep in mind that if an article was originally written for a platform such as your company’s blog, heavier edits may need to be made to avoid discussing your company, products, and services directly.
We try to avoid heavily promotional content — basically that content is directly trying to sell the audience something. We aim to keep our content free of promotional material to provide a better environment for educational and resourceful content. Think, “what can readers gain from this content even if they don’t use my services?” It’s best to avoid discussing products or services directly, especially stuff you or your company offer. While there are exceptions (such as comparisons of services/products that equally represent all services/products mentioned), generally this content doesn’t suit our audience well.
To maintain the quality and impartiality of our content, we reserve the right to refuse articles that don’t align with our mission and beliefs or to revise submitted content such that it better reflects our non-promotional values. We understand this is a very hard line to draw, and it’s obviously subjective, so please don’t take it personally. Our main objective is to be known as a trustworthy place in which to consume IoT-focused content without having to worry that what you’re reading is skewed toward a certain vendor(s).
