jReshea & and the Bermuda Triangle: Being authentic in your work

Originally posted on JalaynaCarter.com:
This post was inspired by VidCon’s 2015 conference, specifically a panel on race & representation on Youtube. For some of the vloggers, their race and culture is as inherent to their “work” as their personalities are. For others, it’s a little hazier than that. There’s no question though that race has played some part in the content these creatives put out, whether it’s putting out content that defies what people expect of them or breaking or using their platform to advocate around the issues they feel are important. Here’s the video for it. The video got me thinking about how hard it is for me to break out of the thinking that I can or should only write about certain topics and that I should stay away from others. I have so many interests, beliefs, opinions, ect. On the one hand, I want to plaster my linkedIn profile with the fact that I babysit and volunteer at an animal shelter but it’s not like my future employers would care too much…

I want to go to VidCon

VidCon 2015 has started and I’m seeing vlogs and posts and pictures of it. I want to be there so baaaaad. AAAAAh why does it have to be all the way in America, so fasr away. VidCon started in 2010, conceived by Hank Green. Every year Youtubers and fans come together at this event to celebrate online media. It’s the place to meet your favourite Youtuber. For a long time I’ve been wanting to meet John and Hank Green, but I’ve recently started to watch some other Youtubers and I’d just love to go to VidCon. It seems like there is this amazing atmosphere there and I’d love to meet other fans and just have a great time. Unfortunately, I won’t be going any time soon. Basically I’m just hoping that it will continue for another 5 to 10 years, because I’ll then might be able to visit. Have a nice day!
