YouTube is a big thing that a lot of people don’t get. There are plenty of events held worldwide to celebrate the platform, its content creators and the international communities it creates. One of these events is CraicCon, Irelands very own meet-up for both content creators and subscribers.
Last year, I attended the event (not that you’d know it as I’ve yet to even look at my vlogging footage, wherever it may be – worst daily vlogger ever). Although we all hid under trees for a while, the rain could not dampen our spirit (ba dum dum tsch). Surrounding yourself by people who are hilarious, kind and get you is a great way to spend a day, but the best part is certainly that everybody in attendance is passionate about online video creation and the future of digital media. This year, I’m looking forward to doing it all again and I can’t recommend enough that you join me.
CraicCon is being held at UCD in Dublin this Saturday, and tickets are available anseo for just five euro. The wonderful Marco Danesi (marcoinabox) will be reppin’ YouTube with his panel on collaboration, while the other panel “Craicing YouTube” will see a number of the bigger YouTubers among us discussing their success. When I say that Ireland has some of the best YouTubers in the world here, I honestly mean it. I’ll link a few of my favourites at the bottom of this post.
I’ll also be at Summer in the City for all three days next week, which I’m ecstatic about. This will be my first time in attendance, and I truly adore London. Being in the city again will be wonderful.
That’s all I wanted to say. If you see me at either event, please say hi! I often get tweets after events from people saying they saw me at a concert or wherever, but were too afraid to approach me. But you know, I don’t usually bite!
