Verified On Google And Famous Birthdays ✔★

Ever since I was a little girl, I dreamed of my name appearing on Google in recognition for my work. I was really excited to find out that I now have a knowledge panel on Google, as well as a profile added to the website Famous Birthdays. Thank you so much to everyone who has supported me in the past, and continues to support me today. It feels really cool now to be a recognized author, blogger, and YouTuber across the web when people search my name.

A New Leaf Has Been Turned

Hello bloggers:

As everyone is preparing for Easter this weekend and the festivities it involves, I hope we all have a great time and the Easter bunny brings us lots of treats. Tonight as I sit here writing this entry, I am very proud of myself because it is something that I wanted to write for the past 2 years now.

As some of you may know, I have a YouTube channel that I began 3 years ago. I started it off with gaming videos, animations, and fun challenges that I did with my boyfriend. But back in 2016, I lost the passion to continue on with my channel. When I first started my channel, I played the game “Five Nights at Freddy’s”, which was a horror survival game. I began making animations using the characters from that game. I got nearly 30,000 subscribers, over 13,000,000 views on all of those videos, and many fans. I would get fan art, people saying they want to meet me, and people saying I was their favorite YouTuber. 

So what went wrong, you may ask?

I noticed that people didn’t really watch my videos for me. They didn’t like me; they weren’t a fan of me; they were a fan of the video game. They liked the animations, they liked the game plays, they liked the game itself. Whenever I would upload another video, say a challenge video or a story time, it would get as many dislikes as likes. It would get 100 views whereas my other videos had over 2 million views. Why was this happening? I asked myself for so long. Then the answer came: my channel became a channel for “Five Nights at Freddy’s”. I was no longer in control of my channel; it was in control of me. When I posted another type of video, comments would flock in saying I needed to go back to the other videos. So I did. I became miserable and resentful of YouTube.

At one point, it was amazing. It was fun, I had a lot of passion for it and it was wonderful. I was making a decent paycheck every month from the ad money I was receiving on my videos, and life was great. But as months went on, it got dull. I did not like where it was heading. I wanted to be in control of my channel again, to make things that I wanted to make. And I couldn’t.

For fear of the hate. For fear of the disapproval. For fear of the unsubscribers. 

I stopped making videos. Biweekly videos turned into 2 videos per year. I envied YouTubers who had fun making their videos, got to be themselves and had an audience that respected them and followed them on their journey.

Something in me snapped at the beginning of March. I didn’t know what it was. It just snapped. I had a mini breakdown and I realized: This life is short. I want to make videos that I want to make. I no longer want to be constrained by the audience that only wants me to make videos that I no longer have any passion or interest in whatsoever. So I went to the store and bought a brand new camera. I planned out what I was going to say, sat down, and filmed it. I was so nervous it took me until now to finally upload it. The response was better than I imagined. Some people were disappointed, but the others understood. I was so afraid to take this initial step and say to my audience: “This is me. This is what I am doing now.” But I did, and I’ve never felt so happy.

At the end of the day, I am a super girly, super loud 20 year old girl. I have a blog, a book, a (surprisingly enough) Famous Birthdays profile and a brand that I adhere myself to. But search up my name in Google and there you have it: pictures of animated robotic chickens all over the place. How embarrassing! Not my image nor brand at all.

Collaborations were turned down because no one wanted to work with me. Not because my content wasn’t good, but I wanted to work with people whose videos were the type I wanted to make, but didn’t. Our channels were totally different. Go to my channel and see animations from “Five Nights at Freddy’s”, in which were pretty lame if I do say so myself . . .  well, it wasn’t promising in this line of work. Even if I were to make a new video, like I said, my audience would thumb it down so quick I couldn’t even have time to think about what went wrong. Comments would desperately exclaim: “Go back to your old content!”

A new leaf has been turned over. This is finally me. Victoria Hecnar, making the videos I wanted to make from the very beginning. Blogging about what I wanted to blog about, from the very beginning. 

Now that I am on my way to building a brand and image for myself that I can be proud of, you’re going to see a lot more than me! I’m going to be uploading weekly videos, writing weekly blog posts, and updating my Instagram a lot more than before (yup, no more photo per 6 months!) This year, starting now, is going to be about my passions and going forward, I am no longer doing things for the numbers or for the interests of others. 

There are thousands of other animated videos out there, and my channel will no longer be one of them. It was an incredible journey, but this has to be done. I am doing this for me and for my well-being.

A new leaf has been turned.

Meeting Tana Mongeau

Hello, bloggers!

I hope everyone is getting ready for the long weekend and unfortunately, for summertime to be done and over with. On the bright side of things, fall and winter are the absolute best times of the year for so many reasons. But more on that later.

About a month ago, I bought tickets to see the Tana Mongeau & Friends tour in Toronto, Ontario, Canada for August 10th. I bought them totally on impulse, but it was the best impulsive decision that I’ve ever made in my life. I bought them online the night before, called Jacob, and said, “Hey. We’re going to Toronto tomorrow to see that  YouTuber that I really like.” Of course at first he was confused, but I think it turned out great in the end.

So who is Tana Mongeau? A girl who got famous on the internet by posting videos of her telling stories about her life in a comedic, sassy way is the best way I can think of to describe her. She’s only 19 years old, been on YouTube for less than 3 years and has accumulated over 2,000,000 subscribers. She’s been on two three tours (two of her own), has her own merchandise and is very popular.

She is definitely not everyone’s cup of tea, but one thing is for sure: she’s entertaining and is good at getting people interested in what she has to say, whether in a negative or positive light.

The day of the show, Jacob and I drove four hours to get there and checked in at our hotel. After a quick touch up, we were out the door and driving to the venue. I bought meet and greet passes, but next time I will definitely do VIP. We waited in line for almost two hours, just to meet her for less than two minutes. Was it worth it? For someone who is a dedicated fan, for sure. I wish I could have spent more time chatting with her, but I am definitely still happy I got to meet her. 

The venue was at “The Opera House” in Toronto, a venue slash bar slash restaurant scene. The line for general admission and meet and greet stretched all the way down the street. Although her videos can contain quite raunchy material, I was surprised that the majority of her fans were actually very young, most being underage. 

As for the actual meet and greet, I must say, she is an extremely sweet girl. She definitely knows how to reel her fans in and make each and every one feel appreciated. When I went up to meet her, she said: “Oh my God, this girl is so hot. Is your mind blown at how hot this girl is right now?” Tana also fed me some ego boosting compliments such as, “I love your outfit” and “You smell so good.” She also told me numerous times that she loved me which warmed my heart. Tana rubbed my back as we took pictures. I mean, who doesn’t love that?! Tana is amazing with her fans, and no one can deny that. 

The workers at the venue were quite rude. They seemed rushed, and were being very harsh to the venue goers. I was rushed and screamed at to hurry up; perhaps they were not expecting the large outcome and therefore had to rush the meet and greet process. Tana handled it fantastically, as she herself looked rather annoyed by the workers. They screamed for me to get going as I was trying to explain to her that my boyfriend let me have his picture for the meet and greet as I am a bigger fan than he is. As they yelled at me to get going, Tana said, “Okay, can we not yell, can we just communicate, please?” Tana, girl, you rock.

The show itself was lighthearted and quirky as her and her friends told some scandalous stories on stage, and of course Tana was her fearless, outgoing, I-don’t-give-a-shit self as for always. 

All in all it was an amazing experience that Fullscreen Live put on, and I would recommend it to anyone. Hopefully one day, Tana and I’s paths will cross again .  .  .

YouTube Update: Complete Channel Redo

Hi bloggers! I have just a quick announcement to make; for a few months now I debated wiping my channel out and mass deleting, like, half of my videos. My channel is honestly a mess: I thought it would be a good idea to not have a main focus (make-up, gaming, etc) and just do a bit of everything. Turns out, it’s harder to find an audience that way. All my non gaming videos get as many dislikes as likes, and I find it hard to find a loyal audience when I keep switching my video themes. Also, a lot of my videos I was a bit embarrassed about. For example if someone was to find them that I know from work or school, I wouldn’t be proud of it. So I was thinking: Why keep something online that I am not proud of and wouldn’t share with anyone who would listen? 

Therefore, I am going to delete a bunch of them and only keep ones that I love as much to share. Thanks to the 28,000 people that do support my channel and I. I really appreciate it!

I Was In A Car Accident

Hey guys! I was driving with my boyfriend a few weeks ago, when an old man just made a left out of literally no where and slammed right into me. He tore my bumper right off and I had to bring it into an auto shop that ended up costing $4,000 (thank God for insurance). It was a pretty scary experience, especially since it was my first car accident (and hopefully last . . . one can hope). To watch the full story please click on the video below:

Drive safe guys! There’s crazy drivers out there! xoxo

Rude Girls At “Tim Horton’s”

Hey bloggers and readers! So it’s been over a month since my last post. But I post weekly on my YouTube channel, which you can check out by clicking here! One of several videos that I uploaded recently was a story time video. It seems to be quite a popular category on YouTube nowadays, these “story time” videos. Mine is 100% true and it made me so angry. I made a video about it and I will link what had happened below. But the main story is these girls at “Tim Horton’s” called me stupid as I drove away from the drive thru after they got my order wrong and I had to correct them. Once I arrived home after telling the manager, I noticed they cut down the side of my drink and it spilled everywhere. Bitches.

UPDATE AS OF 2016-04-26: I haven’t seen them working there recently and I go there almost on a daily basis. Here’s hoping that those evil bitches got fired. To listen to the full story click on the video posted below:

I love you guys! Have a great week! xoxo

I Got A New Car!

Untitled 4

I got a new car! I am so excited! I have been absolutely loving it! I love the freedom it gives me, being independent, and being able to go where I want, when I want with no hesitations. Plus driving is super fun! I got a cute little feminine car. It’s a Hyundai Accent in black. Originally I wanted a white car, but this one was so awesome I could not resist. It has two flower decal stickers on each side, a new stereo put into it, a flower wheel cover to match the decals, Tinkerbell mats, and the noise it makes when your seatbelt isn’t on makes me feel like a fairy! (Watch the video to hear it). Check out the video posted belowto see it in action! xoxo

“Touch My Body” Challenge With My Boyfriend

My boyfriend and I decided to do a fun challenge for our YouTube channel. We did the “Touch My Body” challenge, where one person is blindfolded and must use only their index finger (which we failed to do . . . oops) to guess the other person’s body part. I say it was a tie! We’ll definitely do this again soon to declare a winner and make sure we just use our index fingers next time!
