FUCK THERE’S A SPELLING ERROR IN THIS POST FUCK FUCK FUCK
I know for a fact that I wasn’t the only one, and that actually worries me a bit. I made sure to take the breaks I needed but that doesn’t mean everyone did. But thank you my love, it really comes down to it being celebrity culture and all of that weirdness, which i truly don’t understand.
I’ve seen a lot of posts and videos about people’s thoughts on VidCon this year and after thinking about my experience for a few days I feel ready to write about it. [Everything I am posting is based on PERSONAL EXPERIENCE and is just my opinion, nothing else.]
As most of you know, I attended VidCon last year, and it was a very different experience. I pushed myself physically to a point where I wasn’t eating and hardly sleeping because I thought I had to be in a line for a signing or I just personally felt like I didn’t have time to do those things. I spent most of the convention waiting in signing lines, and wandering about the expo hall. I did not attend any panels or Q&A’s. In a way I’m glad I did my first year of VidCon the way I did because I sort of got the fangirling over with.
This year was a far more “professional” or “adult” year for me because I went in with the mindset of really only wanting to meet one person. This was partially because over the corse of the past few months with everything that had happened in the YouTube community, I no longer felt the draw to it. This year I let myself rest, I wasn’t getting up at crazy hours to wait in lines, and I made sure my day ended around 3 so I could go back to my hotel to eat and take a nap. I attended panels, some because I was interested in the topic, and others as time fillers. The ‘time filler’ panels actually turned out to be some of my favourites and its just really lovely to learn something new rather than wait in a line, cranky and such. After attending panels, and having brief but meaningful conversations with creators I felt far more inspired to start creating myself.
I feel like I cannot technically compare the two years based on my experience because they were so different, but these are the things i can compare.
Now those things did make my trip far more stressful, but aside from those things, it was a very pleasurable experience. Everyone I talked to, from people in lines with me to content creators they were all very kind and really interesting to have a conversion with, regardless of how brief. I have to admit that I am a little scared to possibly attend next year, but I do know that because people are voicing their thoughts on this year, maybe next year will be better.
There’s nothing I love more than seeing tags on our posts, it’s seriously so hella
