If you have a story to share about the joys and hardships of living abroad, being in an interracial relationship, surviving long distance or travelling around Asia, you have come to the right place.

Here are the different categories for guest posts:

Living/Travelling Abroad (Asia)

We would like to hear your own personal experience of living abroad in Asia. Why did you make the decision to move, or what kinds of difficulties have you encountered? Maybe you have a list of tips to go with your story. Or maybe you have been travelling through Asia and want to share everything you have learned and seen? This is the right category for you.

Interracial Love Stories

Any story about falling in love, dating, weddings, and married life. We love to hear about other people’s experiences, especially of couples who come from different races, cultures or religions. Share your story of how you met. Tell us about the most interesting aspects of your relationship and let everyone know of how you have overcome the difficulties of a cross-cultural relationship. Maybe you have even survived long-distance or are currently experiencing it? Whatever your story, if successful married ever after or a tragic ending, if you would like to share your experiences on this blog we would be happy to.

Others

Of course, guest posts are not strictly restricted to those three categories. If you have an interesting story China related we are always happy to share those stories.

Guidelines for every Guest Post:

  • Original content only. We only share original guest posts. That means your post should not be published on any other side (or even worth just copy pasted stolen content from another side!)
  • Length. Ideally posts should be between 500 and 1500 words long. If you need more words to tell your story that is fine as well. In the end, there is no real template for a good guest post.
  • Style. It is up to you if you would like to write a traditional essay, a ‘how to’ list or maybe an interview. Especially guest posts in the ‘Art’ category can get creative: Add your own drawings, images, design works, or poems.
  • Images. It is always good to include at least one image/photo (rights-cleared only) with you post. If you want to include several images make sure to mark the position you want the image to be placed in your post.
  • Byline. If your story gets published, it will include a byline which is a one-line bio and can also include links to website(s) and/or social media account(s) of your choice. Please provide your preferred byline and link(s) when you submit.
  • Scheduling. Guest posts are usually scheduled for every Wednesday and are published in order of submission date. If you have a very urgent topic that should be published at the earliest possible date, remember to mention this in your submission.
  • Disclaimer. To maintain the quality and integrity of Lost Panda, we reserve the right to refuse submissions for any reason.
