[life] 2014 convention recommendations

I've been thinking about what sort of goals I would like to set in 2014 (after pretty much failing to set any for 2013 because of how awful the end of 2012 was, but also after stumbling onto some goals as the year has progressed; for example, I've written for more than 100 consecutive days, and apparently I've given up soda, and now I'm working on the whole vitamin intake), and one of those things is attending conventions. I'm just not sure which ones.

So I turn to you, delightful people, for recommendations. I've only ever been to three (Wiscon a few years, Writercon once, and some local gaming conventions for one of my jobs at the time), but I'd like to do more.

Wiscon is absolutely on my list for 2014, though that's a hard time of year for me to travel, and I'm not sure how it will work out. I hope it does, though, because I loved Wiscon the times I went, and some of my favorite people are usually there, and I'd love to meet more people.

Other than that, I have no idea.

Dragon Con and SDCC are out of the picture for 2014. They are just too big for me. Someday, I want to attend each of them (in different years), but 2013 has been hard enough that I'm not going to risk pushing my people anxiety by trying to attend one of those two.

Recommendations? Thoughts? What are your favorite conventions?
