We’re looking for guest writers for The Asian American Journal (AAJ) and contributors of video, humor, book reviews, challenges/brain teasers, and polls. You’ll be credited in the post. Find out more below.
In addition to blog entries on multiple Asian American categories, we highlight Asian American related YouTube videos regularly on our video page, Asian American humor (in the form of jokes, cartoons, and videos), Asian American events or Asian American career-related book reviews, and polls.
We want to feature content in several niche topics and are looking for contributors:
- Are you looking to share your opinion and expertise with a strong community of Asian Americans as a guest writer?
- Are there any original artists out there who would like to have their Asian American comics promoted? Or are you an artist?
- Do you know any good Asian American-related jokes, brainteasers, or puzzles?
- Do you know of any good content sources (that could be used with permission)?
- Do you have good Asian American video content?
- Do you like to review Asian American Events or Asian American Career books?

We’re excited that you’re interested in writing (and speaking) about, but before we let you in, I need to make sure we’re a good fit. Fair enough?
It is a win-win situation, your guest post will help you get more traffic, massive exposure, awesome backlinks, and ultimately more sales. As for our readers they are exposed to diversity and another point of view.

No Affiliate Links or Product Sales or Even Product Reviews!
The purpose of allowing you to write a guest post is to help you get the exposure and traffic you need. It’s not to help you market somebody else’s product. I have no problems with affiliate marketing whatsoever because I do it everyday myself. However, I am not looking for my guest posts to be a Big Pitch Fest. So, don’t link to any affiliate sites. You can, however, link back to your site!
