This last weekend was a new experience in many ways. I'm sure you are looking back at the title and wondering why. Since it's common knowledge that Mobicon was a big boost in my business as well as how long I was a staff member. But let me break down some things so that the coming blog(s) make sense.
I left Mobicon two years ago on a very sour note. I name a lot of the behind the scenes drama for all of it. I name those dramatic days the reason I split with some amazing friends and even had hope in a couple other cons changing their bad habited ways and one to come in and make a new scene. I was disappointed in all parts that year. But, since then, I've learned this was all good. For me at least.
So last year we skipped Mobicon for a lot of reasons. The former drama being a key piece. But also because there had been a very recent change in power and direction just before the convention date and I didn't want to ruin my former day feelings with one of judging a rebirth before that rebirth had really happened. So skip to this year and you find where I am now. Sitting here with a press badge hanging around my neck. A pen and notebook in hand. Watching my husband and daughter run around the con in their cosplays and I, for the second time ever, am playing handler. A first at being handler to two people. But it's been a great bit of fun so far. And I thank the new staff, most being familiar faces, of Mobicon in granting me access in a new way. And with that thought. I'll start my posts about my new adventure at the reborn Mobicon, Mobile's Comic Con.
Note: Images will be added shortly. This photographer forgot she had the wrong saves. So imagine pretty pictures here.
