2012 will be my first trip to ACEN and I'm curious how many artists in the alley sell Doujinshi? I've been to a few cons and I've only seen a couple of artists selling. Are there more artists who tend to sell their original work?

Do you mean original or from Japan? BL, hentai, yaoi or vanilla?

Offhand there are between 5-10 that sell doujinshi commercially from Japan in the dealer room, not counting the yelling yaoi guy. You can also buy artist alley artwork doujinshi or ask for commissions if you are lucky.

The "Yelling Yaoi Guy"? Oh, I can't WAIT to see/hear him! It doesn't have to be commercially from Japan. I've found a couple of really great doujinshi from artists right here in the states.

Since I'm a bit of a noob, what's the definition of vanilla?

I think by vanilla he means nothing has changed from the original material.

Vanilla means sweet loving doujinshi but it can also mean, regular normal stuff. Since most of the doujinshi are NTR or what may have you, Vanilla is anything that's outside of that.

Yeah there is a yaoi yelling guy. He sells yaoi paddles and what may have you.

Oh FYI, some of the sellers of doujinshi do not go by circle, but instead go by pairing or series. The Yaoi yelling guy store sometimes have the books mixed up, since it's the first thing that you see from the artist alley x.x;;;;

So let's say you are looking for Omega-2d, you have to really look and ask around for that particular circle instead of the title in question.

If you really want doujinshi, the quickest way, but also the most expensive way, is to get a proxy and go on Toranoana. I found a lot of doujinshi there I couldn't find at Acen. Welll....I haven't found Zektbach to this day.
