Write for us - Bloggers Wanted


መልካም አዲስ ዓመት !!!  

This blog has been my personal pride and joy for a little over three years now. I love writing posts on it more than any work I do today. What started out as personal joy has moved on to become the ultimate life experience that opened the door to a great writing career. This blog has made me to good for its own good - so much so that it has led to this point. It is with mixed emotions that I say I can no longer keep up the submission of posts to this site as often as I would like to, and would like to have some help from other writers that would love to contribute posts.The only option that is left to me is to open it up for people that have a passion for this beautiful country – Ethiopia.

It doesn’t matter if you’re just passing through, and it doesn’t matter which part of the country it is you are in if you have something good to share about your trip and travel, then please, consider becoming a contributing blogger to DeepEthiopian.com.

As long as you write from the heart and about the truth you have actually experienced yourself you will be a writer that is always welcome. The only rules being:
  •           All content that is published shall be owned by you, the writer, and there will be no copying or even  re-writing of other people’s contents no matter what.
  •           There will be no X-rated content no matter what. And
  •          There will be no political topics no matter what.

This blog is, and always will be, about Ethiopia and Ethiopians by people from within the country. It is about telling the world what the country really is about via narrations of firsthand experiences.Geography, history, anthropology etc. are the topics that are usually expected, but what is most important is that it is always the truth.

If you decide to be a contributing writer, you will have the right to have your posts published in your own name. While this site will give you a large audience, it is for the time being a non-paying position.

I hope you come aboard and enjoy the writing as much as I do.

Warmest regards,

Deep Ethiopian

    1. Hi Lily,

      Thank you for visiting Deep Ethiopian and your interest in posting. The only criteria I kindly ask from writers are:

      1. Your post should be related to Ethiopia and/or Ethiopians, or your experiences if you have traveled to are currently in the country.

      2. There should be no politics, insulting or X-rated topics in the posts.

      As for your questions, there is no limit on the length, and you can use links to sites that are relevant to you (your blog, website, etc.) But, please try not to make it too tacky.

      I would appreciate if you could add a link back on your site, but that it is not a must, I leave it up to you.

      Again, thank you and I I look forward to your posts.

      Warmest Regards,

  3. Hi,

    Do you need “Guest Bloggers” for your blog? I represent a large community of writers who are trying to get their unique family friendly content published on sites such as yours. My writers are just looking for exposure so there is no charge to you for the content.

    The all writers I represent are professionals and are not churning out garbage content that reads like a sales ads. Each piece takes time to create and is usually 500 words or more in length. We hope to establish a long term relationship with you. You can also feel free to monetize the articles.

    PS. I am sure you will want to see some writing samples so just let me know and I can show you several.

    Thanks,

  10. Hello,

    My name is Lul and I am an Ethiopian student in the United States. I am planning to do a youth conference when I return to Ethiopia this summer and would like to document some of that on your blog, also I would appreciate if you contacted me so that you can give me some insight on the country. I haven't been back in only 3 years but I've been traveling my whole life so this is my way of taking back all of my habesha that has been lost over the years. I really would like a diverse group of mentors and I enjoy your blog so I hope you'd consider lending your hand out to me. My email is kidanelul@gmail.com. Thank you for your time and your work.
