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 […]

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 […]

If You’re Hustlin’ ’til You Drop, SOMETHING’S Gotta STOP.

“Every day I’m hustlin’ (x4)” — Rick Ross, “Hustlin’”, Port of Miami (2006) The other night I was typing up a storm in #blkcreatives—by far my favourite Twitter chat right now—when something caught my eye. That month’s theme was money and money management, which invariably got us talking about how […]

The Life and Times of Casey Palmer: An Elegy for Mediocrity

Y’all ain’t interested in writing anything great. The name of the game is mediocrity. Mediocre blogs that don’t share anything worth reading; people who skip birthdays for mediocre events; mediocre personalities, expectations and lives. No one’s striving for anything amazing anymore. And it boggles my mind—everything’s literally within reach, but when people find out how […]

The Life and Times of Casey Palmer — The State of the #BloggerLife, March 2016

Life with two kids is a whole lot busier than I thought it’d be. I remember thinking my hands were full with one when he first arrived in 2013, but it’s clear to me now that I hadn’t the faintest back then of how complicated things can get! “You can’t […]

The Life and Times of Casey Palmer — Return to Form.

My biggest problem as a blogger? I refuse to write shitty content. It’s been more than a week since I finished the month-long Tales from the 2.9 project, and there’s plenty I’ve wanted to say—there are conversations that need to be had to further explore the Black community, seeing […]

The Life and Times of Casey Palmer — The #BloggerLife, Thirteen Years Later

“This is a funny subject, just because none of you even know me. Not yet, anyway. The name’s Casey Palmer, and I’m at one of those pivotal points in my life right now. It’s the last summer before first year of university. Amidst all the limited bursts of […]

The Life and Times of Casey Palmer — Who Will Save Your Soul?

“When██ hit the fan, is you still a fan?!” — Kendrick Lamar, “Mortal Man”, To Pimp a Butterfly (2015) I’ve felt lost for a bit with the #BloggerLife, rummaging deep within for something valuable to write about, but keep coming up short of anything that feels… complete. There’s plenty I should […]

31 Things I Know Now That I’m 31: #6 — Push Past Your Limits!!!

I wish I could show people what it’s like in my head. Though I don’t always produce by putting content out as often as my peers who have, let’s say, more time on their hands, the intent’s always there. The #BloggerLife’s constantly competing with the rest of my […]

31 Things I Know Now That I’m 31 INTERLUDE — We Don’t Die, We Multiply.

I struggle. 2015’s been a mighty impressive year for the #BloggerLife so far, with opportunities and accomplishments I’d never have dreamt of. Some of the more notable successes include: Butterball Canada choosing me as their first-ever male ambassador, looking to enter the summer with plenty of content about […]
