1. WHAT OTHER TYPES OF VIDEOS WOULD YOU LIKE US TO MAKE?
Over the past 5 years, we’ve experimented with different types of videos, but answering questions about blindness has always been our most popular content. Are there any other types of videos you would like to see us create? Also, who would you like to see collab with? Tell us your favorite YouTubers who you think would be a good match for our channel!
2. VIDCON 2017 – USA, EUROPE, AND AUSTRALIA
VidCon, the convention for people who love online video, is not only returning to California in 2017, but it’s also coming to Europe and Australia for the first time! It’s a great opportunity to meet subscribers who live outside of the US and unable to travel to California.
In 2016, Tommy was invited to VidCon as a ‘Featured Creator’ and appeared on two panels to discuss disabilities on YouTube. This was the first time the topic was featured at VidCon and we’d like to continue the discussion while meeting our international subscribers (50% of our audience according to the analytics), but we need your help! If you would like to see Tommy invited back to VidCon and be featured at all 3 locations in 2017, please submit Tommy’s name at the links below (we’ve included the required information).
