I learned so much about YouTube at my first VidCon conference. Thank you to everyone who helped make it great and to all the nice people who took my photo!

Thank you to Zach King! It was great to meet and learn from you at VidCon. I met so many people who gave me ideas for what to do with my YouTube channel.

As #ZachKing says: “Stories can make people smile.”

From the VidCon Conference:

WHAT IS VIDCON?

VidCon is an event and experience for those who work in online video and those who love it. Made for both the creators and viewers of the online video industry, VidCon 2018 will again be a celebration of everything that makes this medium awesome, bringing together a global community that believes online video is the most important cultural force since the motion picture.

VidCon was started in 2010 by the Vlogbrothers, John and Hank Green, as a place where people who had only ever met on the internet could connect in real life. Since then, the VidCon event in the United States has expanded to over 30,000 people and in 2018 will continue to grow into the new wing of the Anaheim Convention Center, the event’s home for the past several years.
