We have been creating content about Malindi Kenya for more than seven (7) years now. We love what we are doing and we can’t imagine doing anything else. The work is demanding and tiring. Coupled with travelling, writing for Malindi can be challenging (I guess this answers why we do not have a post every other day on malindians.com).
Over the years, We have had many people asking for consideration to post on our blog. Until now, we have always turned down such requests. Working with Archie and Salome has convinced us to give this a try. Experience has taught us that every good thing out there needs guidelines. For this reason, we have come up with a nice set of Guest Post Guidelines to help us guide the way on this new frontier.
So to answer the requests of many, YES!, Effective today, we will be accepting guest posts. We currently do not have a plan to publish a post on a daily basis. However, we have a target of publishing at least an article per week.
Content of Guest Posts
Your guest post must be centered on one of the following topics (at the moment):
- Malindi (Malindi Kenya)
- Recipes of foods from East Africa (Especially coastal foods)
- Culture (Coastal tribes)
- History (Malindi and its Environs)
- People (Notable individuals who have accomplished things within Malindi. These can include leaders, artists e.t.c)

- General information about places in Malindi. This includes attractions, beaches, hospitals, hotels, restaurants, cafes, neighbourhood etc
We do not accept posts that are POLITICAL and those of the nature of an advertisement of a product, business or service or what is an equivalent of a sponsored post. However, we have created a special category to cater for advertising needs for both local businesses and those from outside Malindi town.
