Guest Writers

Benefits:

You'll be a published author and expose your name and talents to tens of thousands of readers every month! Whether you're an aspiring author, looking to gain more traffic to your blog, or just want to share your knowledge, writing as a guest writer for Safari the Globe is a great way to gain some exposure or build your resume.

Content:

All submissions must be relevant to Safari the Globe's focus and mission (see below), meaning it must be focused on some form of culture. This may include identity, food, religion, relationships, sports, arts, entertainment, holidays, festivals, architecture, and nearly any other part of daily life from work to school.

Safari the Globe does not post articles or blogs focused on politics, economics, or fashion (we do accept posts about traditional clothing or how the clothing is changing today), although naturally these items affect aspects of the culture and may be addressed in a culturally-focused article. Additionally, Safari the Globe doesn't take any political stances and won't post articles with a specific political or economic stance stated overtly or subtly. However, personal opinions are allowed so long as they are supported by observation and/or research.

If you've written a blog post on your own website that you think would be relevant you may submit that and we'll post the first few sentences of your post, then will direct our readers to your blog. However, any previously published article/blog must be approved in writing for re-publication by the copyright owner.

All submissions must be written in English and must be void of foul language and political, economic, racial, and other biases.

Safari the Globe's Mission:

At Safari the Globe, our mission and focus is on understanding modern-day cultures, which are created by the landscapes and events from every culture's past. This quest for knowledge begins with every aspect of a modern culture including the language, food, genetic heritage, and even the sports and entertainment loved by the people.

It is our belief that travelers, and those just curious to learn about foreign cultures, should know and understand why cultures are the way they are in order to prevent misunderstandings, biases, preconceptions, and hatred.

It is our hope that each of our visitors gains more knowledge about their destination, but more importantly a better understanding of why their destination is what it is today. To accomplish this goal, we want our readers to better understand why people speak their particular language, eat their particular foods, and love the sports that they love.

We believe to understand any culture one must better understand the landscapes and events of the past. We hope to accomplish this by teaching our readers more about the geography that influenced the way of life, the weather that provided plants, the animals that call the lands home, the history that changed the people, the religions that have influenced daily life, and the languages and ethnicities that help contribute to the modern society and culture.

However, it is also our mission to remind people that every individual is unique and what may be typical for a culture isn't necessarily true or representative of every individual from that country or culture.
