What is a Vlog and what is a Vlogger Fair?
I was wondering the same thing a short time ago. To those of us of a more mature age who are just catching up to the trends, it is a video blog.
Who is vlogging you ask? Well, at this fair the popular personalities are under 40, single or families and they are a hit with the young female generation.
I was amazed and intrigued by the following of these You Tube successes. The majority of attendees at the vlogger fair, a two day event with vendors and you tube personalities, were young, female and very familiar with all the names of the vloggers who were going to be speaking. Many of the You Tube people have vlogs about themselves and their families, kind of like a reality show but without all the drama. They talk about family, their daily lives and interesting things happening around them. Some vlogs have a theme, like make-up tutorials, fashion or crafting, but those types of video blogs were not represented at the fair.
I think the vlogs by Chris Pirillo, Shay Carl, Joey Graceffa, Its Judys life, and many others create a sense of community for many of their followers and invite people to be a part of their lives. I felt they are a much better set of folks to follow than many of the movie, TV, and music celebrities many follow. It was a safe, fun, creative environment for young people to be attending.
