Guys guys guys! I totally had a @doomzTO sighting tonight @BootsBourbon #RegiftTO 😀 He lives! 😉 — AdrienneDLR (@AdrienneDLR) January 17, 2014 When I became a father, many thought I’d have to give up blogging, too busy and tired to bother with social media and my life associated with […]

The 2013 100 41-50 — A Bookshelf Full of Things to Read

DO ALL THE THINGS: The 2013 100 Wrap-Up 41-50: Nostalgia, Nintendo and the Need to Clean

Somewhere along the road, I lost a week. Whether it was from an Icepocalypse in Toronto that displaced us from our home, leaving it without power for 30 hours; a nasty illness making it much harder stay jolly (and/or conscious) through the 4-day celebration that is our family’s Christmas; […]

It’s the third of 10 posts for my end-of-year wrap-up for The 2013 100, where I tell you all about the past 365 (or so) days, what I managed to pull off, which plans were a flop, and what I’ll try to do again in 2014. In retrospect, […]

THE GREAT SOCIAL MEDIA STORY: The Dawn of the Daddy Blogger

I recently had lunch with a friend who pointed out that I’ve been a bit of a recluse lately, vanishing from the Toronto Twitter social scene. As we enter the final month of Sarah’s pregnancy (I know, right?!), I’m tying up loose ends on all fronts. Assembling furniture and installing car seats. Completing […]

THE GREAT SOCIAL MEDIA STORY: Blogging Ain’t Everything!

Like a Jay-Z retirement, I wasn’t stepping away from the social media game, but my relationship with it was definitely changing. When I met someone at Friday’s TacoTweetup who asked how many tweetups I’d been to, his eyes bugged out when I answered “I dunno — 100? 150?” For […]

Have you ever done something for ages, suddenly realizing that you’ve been branded with a term that either sells you short or diminishes what you really are? Michael Jordan would eventually try different hats a coach, actor, baseball player and ultimately a very successful businessman, but most people […]

THE GREAT SOCIAL MEDIA STORY: NEVER Forget the Fun!!!

I’d been lying to myself all along. I’ve been stuck in a rut for who knows how long, and it’s been getting harder to hide. My blogs grow increasingly critical of the blogging industry around me; I find it harder to put a solid post together now than […]

WHAT YOU MISSED (Vegas Edition) — Being a #BiSC-uit: A Weekend That Changes EVERYTHING

“I never thought a weekend in Vegas would change my life in a good way.” – @texancountess #bisc — spooky name tom (@tomfromhr) May 19, 2013 Sometimes you just won’t recognize something that’s been missing in your life until you experience it. I’ve been back in Toronto a […]

BECOMING A BETTER BLOGGER: Square Peg, Round Hole

Blogging is a hustle. It requires you mind, heart and soul to produce content and have it truly reflect who you are. With so many bloggers out there, you’re unlikely to see any returns from your writing without a lot of effort and a lot of time. Building a […]
