Trailblazing Tales: Uncovering the Extraordinary with Teekay
Howdy, holà, ٱلسَّلَامُ عَلَيْكُمْ, こんにちは, salut, 你好 !
How are you, my friend ?
My name’s Teekay, but you can call me Tee.
I’m a Bordeaux-based brooklynite, minimalist vanlifer, writer, explorer, ethical vegan, digital creator, podcaster and environmental activist.
My blogging journey started about 20 years ago, in Brooklyn, New York.
The first “blogpost” I ever published was on Friendster, circa 2001. Later in the same year, I turned to MySpace, Hi5 and ultimately Skyblog 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. I couldn’t stay away for long, it seems.
I want to use my platform, be it this blog, my daily blogs on Medium or podcast to shed light onto the things that drive me, that matter to 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.
PSA: On political correctness, I’m respectful but I walk it like I talk it.
If you wish to know more about me, listen to my 4+ year podcast, it’s dope af !
I also write on Medium daily.
In the name of God Almighty, let’s get it!
