Live from the 3.5, 2019 — Chapter 2: Being Black in the Great White North

We don’t talk a lot about Black Canadian history, and that’s probably because so much of it was so horrible. We had segregation. Just look at Viola Desmond, convicted after refusing to leave a whites-only area of the Roseland Theatre in 1946. And though we shake our finger at […]

The Life and Times of Casey Palmer — Thirty-Four: Becoming the Man I’ve Been Looking For

And all of a sudden, the blog came to a standstill. I can’t blame it on anything in particular—I had more than enough to write about with nearly a dozen posts sitting around at about 90% complete—but things felt different. Some stories felt false. Deadlines didn’t feel as urgent anymore. 2017’s been my […]

Thirty-Three: A Year Spent Looking Hard Trying to Find ME.

I feel like we do this every year—I get a little older, grow a little wiser, but somehow miss the mark on accomplishing the countless items left sitting on my to-do list with each passing birthday. Call it being unrealistic or being too hard on myself, but there’s a genuinely great […]

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — #1: Casey Palmer, Blogger, CaseyPalmer.com

You’d think that living a life as a person of colour, I’d have done a series like this far earlier, but I suppose I got sidetracked from everything else with the blog and never gave it a second thought. But some recent experiences starkly reminded me that yes, I am a Black […]

The Month That Was... November 22nd - December 26th, 2015 (Featured Image) v2

The Month That Was… November 22nd – December 26th, 2015.

It’s been the hottest minute since I put out a Week That Was, so much so that I needed to roll ’em up into a month’s worth of material to catch up on the stories! A bit of a fail, I admit, but when you’re simultaneously preparing for Christmas, […]

The Life and Times of Casey Palmer — Why Do We Fall?

People often ask me how I do it — how I manage life as a husband, father and full-time 9-5er while still managing to push content through the blog. It’s no secret I spend hours working on each piece — scrawling ideas on notepads while commuting to and from work, […]

Where all the Dad Bloggers At?!

I’M NOT DEAD, I’M JUST A DAD: Where The Dad Bloggers At?

In the vicious wild of the blogosphere in a creature mighty impressive, but rarely seen. He’s ferociously protective of his young, carving out territory to tell their tales without overexposing them to the dangers of the world. He creates for his peers that may never see his craft, […]

60 Days In Paradise — 60 Reasons Why Casey Palmer Should Be Your Island Connoisseur Logo

THE GREAT SOCIAL MEDIA STORY: What I Learned from Applying to be an Island Connoisseur

What up world? I know — it’s been a while and the world hasn’t stopped turning in my absence, but to put it simply, this boy’s been busy. One major item that flooded my headspace was the 60 Days in Paradise contest, which sought to award one Canadian $50,000 […]

The Scintilla Project Day Fourteen — Run Away Fast As You Can

1. Talk about a time when you were younger and you embarrassed your parents in public, the one that still shames you. 2. We exert control over ourselves and others in many ways. Talk about a time when you lost that control. This can go beyond the obvious […]
