My story, bits by bits
Hello, holà, ٱلسَّلَامُ عَلَيْكُمْ, こんにちは, salut, 你好
The blog is finally
back up and I’m super pumped that you’re here !
For those of you not familiar with my work and story, my name’s Teekay, I’m a Bordeaux-based brooklynite, ethical vegan, minimalist, digital nomad, podcaster, environmental activist and a fairly well-traveled guy.
My blogging journey started about 20 years ago, in Brooklyn, New York.
The first “blogpost” I’ve ever shared was on Friendster, which fell off quickly, so I turned to MySpace, Hi5 and Skyblog (to some extent) to tell my stories.
I used these platforms to share my travel pics, journal entries and to connect with the world.
Fast forward to ’07, I joined Facebook for the first time, and as they say, the rest is history.
Blogging changed a lot since, but it was fun while it lasted. And then Tumblr happened.
Oh Tumblr, I love that space with all my heart !
Drama-free, neat, has a cozy feel to it .. and the birthplace of MoreTeekay.
Back to the future.
I stepped away from blogging in 2018 when I started my own business as a freelance Digital Marketing consultant and Social Media marketer.
But since storytelling has always been a big part of my life, here I am again, psyched as ever !
I use this platform to express myself, shed light onto the things that drive me, that motivate me, things I’m passionate about.
I’ve grown a lot thanks to blogs and would love to pay it forward with this one.
What to expect.
Tons of lessons, tips and travel stories 😚 !
With 51 countries to my name and having lived in 11 of them, my human experience on this-here dimension has been quite sensational.
I fell a thousand times but got up a thousand and one. I lived, I learned, I made tons of mistakes but I always kept it moving.
I’ll be sharing my vulnerabilities, my mistakes and the outcome of each one of them. Some lessons can obviously only be learned through mistakes, but others can be avoided with mentorship and self-awareness.
A quick PSA: I’m NOT necessarily a politically correct individual. I’m respectful, but I walk it like I talk it.
My takes and my stances are solely mine. I’m fully aware of my biases and shortcomings, as well as my strengths and stubbornness (sometimes ^^).
Keep in mind that this blog is all about free speech, so long as y’all are kind and courteous, I’m good with it.
If you wish to know more about me, listen to my podcast (shameless plug). It’s dope af !
In the name of God Almighty, let’s get it!
