Hello hello hello,
I got to thinking recently and said to myself:
It would be really cool if one of my readers wrote a guest post.
So, in short, that is what I need help with. Now as I write this, I have already contacted a few of you and asked if you are ready, willing and able to contribute a guest post to tDA. Now I see some of you asking,
But Mwangi, whatever shall I write about?
I Am Glad You Asked
Seeing as this is the blog dedicated to happiness and peace of mind of Africans in the diaspora AND a lot of y’all, actually most of you reading, are in the diaspora, I would love to know about your experiences and especially the things you have learned along the way. Some of the formats that this article can take are:
a) Top 7 Things I Have Learned Living in Sydney/ Boston/ Coppanhagen etc etc
b) The Story of the Day You Knew You Were an African Immigrant
c) Story of a Day You Triumphed Over Adversity
d) Whatever you feel about writing about, as long as it teaches other people something.
But What If I Am Shy About Talking About Myself
If that is the case, then allow me to recommend that you write a rebuttal post to one of my more controversial posts. Feel free to call me a naive, badly chopped, lemon-head if you please, as long as your rebuttal helps other people. The more controversial posts in the history of the Displaced African are:
Anyway, I am really looking forward to seeing what people can come up with. My first ever guest post, 7 Barriers to an Immigrant’s Success, did very well and is one of the most read articles in the history of this blog.
Let me sign off here by saying:
If you are tempted by the idea and not quite sure whether or not you should. DO IT! I had no idea what I was doing when I first started writing this blog, but in retrospect it’s turned out pretty OK. Plus, I do not bite
Be blessed and bless others,
