Any content creator lamenting for the “good ol’ days” is one who’s just not ready for change. The digital landscape isn’t one that’s ever still. We’ve come a long way from blogging’s humble beginnings, where we had these stand-alone sites that held all the content. I’m sure the bloggers back […]
The Life and Times of Casey Palmer — The State of the #BloggerLife, September 2018 — Go Out with a BANG.
The hardest part of creating great content is figuring out where all the pieces go. The job of a great storyteller is creating a compelling narrative from beginning to end. No fluff to lose your audience’s attention. No ambiguity so they miss the point. A great storyteller uses […]
Back when I got ready for school after the summer break, it was flash cards and workbooks to get me back in the swing of things. I’m about to sound like my Dad, but—these kids don’t know how good they have it! While I didn’t need to walk miles […]

The Life and Times of Casey Palmer — The State of the #BloggerLife, August 2018 — In the Belly of the Beast
I told myself that once I made my way through my never-ending pile of paper, I’d get myself a Nintendo Switch with the latest Mario and Zelda games to reward myself for all the hard work. Which is great, because getting months ahead in my content by getting all of this […]
I was driving the five minutes home from dropping off a friend as I saw several police cars zoom by westbound in front of me—we’re just one street away from the Danforth. I was woefully unaware of what was happening only five minutes away. Unaware, that is until the […]
So I don’t know about you, but my kids always want to do what I’m doing. They want to drink from my cup, even when it’s the same juice in their cup. They want to dress like I do, going as far as borrowing my security pass from work to pretend they’re […]
It’s when you’re a little kid that Canada’s Wonderland most truly lives up to its name. With a park full of surprises they’ll experience for the very first time, you’ll have them wanting a second visit in no time. Dear Canada’s Wonderland — Hey there, it’s been a while! […]
Score 76 points in Scrabble with “Ophthalmologist” — The Canadian Ophthalmological Society: See the Possibilities
If I asked most of you what an ophthalmologist does, I’d likely see a lot of blank stares. (Some ocular humour for you there!) But you wouldn’t be alone. Despite a family history of glaucoma, it honestly wasn’t clear to me, either. I mean, I know what my optometrist does—I stop in every couple […]
It’s no secret that I’m busy. If I didn’t have Sarah and the kids to keep me grounded, I’d likely spend every waking moment thinking about content, always trying to find the best ways to tell the next story. But with all this thinking going on, people often wonder how I find time for […]
