This past weekend was the 5th annual Vidcon! I didn't think I was going to make it originally but I ended up making my way to it the final day and I am so glad I did! Sure meeting up with old friends and hanging out with friends I see is awsome and sure the swag is awesome but... There is just something about Vidcon that recharges my YouTube batteries! It gets the juices flowing! Nothing inspires you like seeing some of your favorite people succeeding and being generaly amazing! -(๑☆‿ ☆#)ᕗ
If you haven't heard of Vidcon it is a Video Conference for online entertainment (mostly.) It's a great place to go if you want to learn how to build your internet pressence and improve your video making skills. They even have an industry track just for creators! It's also a great place to go if you are a fan! Just please don't be one of those psycho fan girls who stampede everywhere screaming at unbearable decibles! - =͟͟͞͞ ( ꒪౪꒪)ฅ✧
Since I only went the one day I didn't get much coverage but I did get some friends to help introduce my new series coming to my channel every Tuesday! Check it out...
Check out the channels of my guest stars!
So excited to make this new series of videos! I have filmed several already and I have written episodes all the way through the end of October! I have never felt so productive (YouTube wise) and inspired to make content. Could this be what I should have been doing the whole time? lol! What can I say? I LOVE Japan and Japanese culture and I was raised with it so I am very connected to it. (*^▽^*)
Speaking of being super pumped I think taking a six month hiatus from YouTube and deleting (making private) all of my videos was one of the best choices I've made! (YouTube wise) Not only did I come back recharged but I also came back a unjaded. It's really easy to get into a funk when you are creating stuff you don't really care about and you're not proud of. It's also really easy to fall into the number hole where you only care about is analytics. I totally fell into both those holes and was thinking YouTube was something I just wanted to quit. I really needed to step back to be able to see what I needed to do. Now I feel free to create whatever I want and not worry about what other people expect from me or want from me. Yes the viewers matter but my viewers have been so supportive about my revamp that I'm pretty sure as long as I am creating stuff I love they will keep watching. (*′☉.̫☉)
Anyways... I could go on forever about my choices but all I will say is I think it was for the best. (•̀ᴗ•́)و ̑̑
If my new series interests you make sure you come back on July 8th for a tour of my favorite Japanese store/mall and on July 15th for a lesson in greetings and other common phrases!
(See You Later!)
