Here is a little background about Ricky Shetty and the Daddy Blogger website:
Ricky Shetty is the owner and operator of Daddy Blogger, where he writes about parenting from a father’s perspective with a big emphasis on family travel with young kids. We are currently on a 1 year Round-The-World Trip visiting Asia, the Middle East, Africa, South America, and Central America. We work with Tourism Boards, Travel Companies, and Corporations to market their products and services to our readers. We have a big global following of moms and dads. Here’s more about us!
Reflections on Fatherhood:
1) RIANNE’S BIRTH (May 16, 2012) – this is the day my life was forever changed. On this day, our beautiful baby daughter Rianne was born at St Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver, Canada. The first year of parenting and fatherhood were definitely some of the best days of my life as I got to see all of my daughters’ firsts. First smile, first giggles, first time rolling over, (first poo leak), first time sitting up, first time crawling, first road trip, first time on an airplane, first time walking, first words, etc.
2) RYAN’S BIRTH (Nov 2, 2013) – my life changed all over again – this time with the birth of our son Ryan at BC Women’s Hospital. Ryan brings us so much joy and happiness just seeing him smile or laugh. I love watching our kids connecting, interacting, and playing with each other. Having young children of different genders is an incredible learning adventure and I hope I can share some of my memories with you through my blog posts.
3) RENZO’S BIRTH (May 6, 2016) – my life changed for the third time with the birth of Renzo at Burnaby General Hospital. Renzo is so full of joy…he cries A LOT…especially when he wants milk. His older siblings Rianne and Ryan love talking to him and interacting with him. Renzo is the youngest and is special in his own way. Our 3 kids have such unique personalities and it is a blessing from above to play a part in watching them grow up.
This blog was started to give a father’s perspective into parenting, to inspire families to travel more, to help expecting and new parents, to process what it means to be a dad, and to create a lasting memory to share with our kids when they are older.
Here is a bit of background on me (the author, also known as: Daddy Blogger):
Ricky Shetty was born on Feb 12, 1977 at Richmond General Hospital in Vancouver, Canada. He grew up in North Vancouver attending Lynnmour Elementary School and Windsor High School and then graduated with a BA in Psychology from the University of British Columbia (UBC). In his early 20s, Ricky developed a passion for adventure and travel after living in London, England and backpacking around Europe.
After University, Ricky went to Tokyo, Japan to teach English (hence, the “tokyoricky” username on his email and various Social Media platforms). After Japan, Ricky traveled through several countries in Asia for 2 years before arriving in Sydney, Australia to study Theology at Hillsong Bible College. Ricky did both a Bungee Jump and a Skydive in New Zealand to satisfy his passion for adventure!
In 2008, Ricky returned to Vancouver, Canada where he worked as an ESL Teacher in Downtown. In 2010, Ricky met the love of his life, Anne, on the Greeting Team at Coastal Church. He planned and orchestrated one of the biggest proposals in Vancouver history with a huge flash mob at YVR as Anne arrived home from the Philippines (make sure you watch the video below). The proposal made the Front Page of The Province.
They got married on the beautiful Wedding Yacht on Canada Day (July 1, 2011) and had an incredible honeymoon cruise to Alaska. On May 16, 2012, their beautiful baby daughter Dianne was born at St Paul’s Hospital. Ricky launched his website Daddy Blogger on Dec 1, 2012 at midnight with the purpose being to change the world…one dad at a time. On Nov 2, 2013, Ricky & Anne’s son Ryan was born at BC Women’s Hospital. On May 5, 2016, their third child Renzo was born at Burnaby General Hospital.
Ricky is the Amazon Best-Selling author of a book about fatherhood called “Wisdom from Daddies” which was released globally on Father’s Day (Sunday, June 16, 2013). The book contains the collective wisdom of over 100 dads from around the world on issues that every dad faces during their journey through fatherhood.
Ricky used to produce a series of Conferences, Workshops, and Events in Vancouver, Canada about Social Media, Blogging, and Internet Marketing. However, in late 2016, Ricky and his family decided to follow their passion to travel the world. On Dec 6, 2016 they started their 1 year Round-The-World Trip that will take them to Asia, the Middle East, Africa, South America, and Central America.
Ricky is happy to do speaking engagements, media interviews, book signings, press trips, and product reviews. We are major social media and blog influencers who practice lifestyle marketing (promoting your companies products and services through everyday lifestyle pictures and videos).
