Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing Their Stories in a Digital Age — #24: Ryan Elcock, COO, The Habari Network

It’s funny the connections you make through something like Tales from the 2.9—before I started this project, while I thought I already stood out as a Dad Blogger in a landscape where male voices were usually reserved for sports, cars and tech, I didn’t fully appreciate the gravity of the conversations […]

Sometimes Canadians don’t stay in Canada — we like telling ourselves that we’ve built a utopia and that our country’s one of the best places to live on Earth, but that doesn’t make it perfect — we’ve still plenty of issues lurking beneath the surface, and unfortunately, the 2.9% of […]

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — #22: Mike Armstrong, Blogger, Daddy Realness

Pretty sure I haven’t stepped foot in Hamilton since dating someone there, but Justin’s told me about its booming blogger scene, including — for example — parent bloggers I’ve yet to meet in the flesh! Mike Armstrong is one of those Dad bloggers out in Steel Town sharing […]

RADIO INTERVIEW ANNOUNCEMENT: Talking Tales from the 2.9 with Gail Vaz-Oxlade!!!

Hi all, just taking a break from our regularly scheduled programming to let you know that if you’re a night owl like me, I’ll be chatting about the Tales from the 2.9 project with Gail Vaz-Oxlade tomorrow night (Monday, February 22nd, 2016) at 10:40 PM ET on her […]

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — #21: Bridget “Bee” Quammie, Digital Content Creator

After all this time invested in blogging and building my brand, I sometimes foolishly (arrogantly?) think that I’ve met everybody in the Toronto-area blogosphere who I’d vibe with, and I’m very glad that I’m still continually proven wrong today — Bee Quammie is the business. As a fellow ’83 baby — […]

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — #20: Shaun Worrell, Blogger, Milk and Coco

Something I realized after my near-immediate induction into parent blogging just months after the birth of my first child was that the world of parent bloggers was a small one, and that of the Dad Bloggers specifically smaller yet. But though the number of Canadian fathers publicly sharing their stories online […]

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — #19: Septembre Anderson, Multimedia Journalist

For what the Black Canadian community lacks in size, it makes up for by being well-connected — there’s always somebody who knows somebody, and this pretty much described how I first virtually crossed paths with Septembre Anderson. I first heard of Septembre a couple of years back when I needed someone […]

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — #18: Lamin Martin, Concept Artist, Lamin Illustration and Design

If there’s one man whose art could consistently make me feel like a poser, it’s Lamin Martin. He’s the smooth-spoken well-dressed gentleman I quickly got to know at comic conventions, eschewing the common fare that everybody else peddled in Artist Alley with prints of popular characters and custom buttons, instead […]

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — #17: Tash Jefferies, Healthy Living Expert, TashJefferies.com

With everything that’s kept me busy of late, it feels like a lifetime age where Tash and I first crossed paths, somewhere back in 2012, me a fledgling lifestyle blogger spending more time winning swag and hitting every party I could find, and Tash like a wiser cousin who […]

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — #16: Ryan Robinson, Father, Business Owner, Up-and-Coming Content Creator

It’d be foolish to talk about the digital landscape for my fellow Black Canadians without keeping an eye firmly fixed upon the future. Ryan Robinson’s someone I got to meet in person fairly recently, and it was refreshing to sit and chat with a like-minded father about parenting, blogging […]
