here is an example of unintended consequences: while trying to crackdown on Pervs & smut peddlers who use Instagram to share their fetishes, Instagram banned porno-related hashtags but caught up in its dragnet:

#Curvy

#BBW ( big, beautiful woman)

And

#ThickGirls! 🙀

How else do non-stick thin women celebrate pride if they can't classify and search for other sisters in love and acceptance?
After Instagram included the terms "curvy", "bbw" and "thick girls" in its dragnet of porno-linked hashtags to ban, all heck broke loose among non-waifs who use those hashtags to celebrate their bodies in a world where stick thin is mainly celebrated

New research suggests that if you are willing to share photos of yourself with your partner online and do some of thee other things, your relationship may last....

Interesting.....
; ; Nowadays, when someone who is dating makes a newly committed relationship official by updating it in their Facebook profile, it's a BFD (big___ deal)! Imagine! Now there is some social science behind this well-acknowledged fact! A new research study from a University of

Which one are you!?
Throughout recent Internet history, there have been articles written about "The Cult of Entrepreneurship", essentially breaking down some of the idiosyncratic nuances associated with the startup culture. ; I was thoroughly amused by a recent commentary written by linguist Gabriella

Kendall Jenner, the youngest member of the Jenner/Kardashian clan (other than the babies) is launching a hair extension line and recently decided to wear a blue ombré wig.  She cornrowed her hair under the weave extensions, similar to how African American and Black women wear their hair underneath their weaves. I’m not sure who taught...

I just noticed people have been reading & replying to a 2010 blog post I wrote about fit body types and acceptance of varying forms of a female body!

It is timely in light of all the body shaming going on with Serena Williams today and in recent years.

Check it out yall!

Audrina Patridge was listed among the top fittest Celebrities of 2010 by FITNESS magazine. I am having one of those Facebook "back and forths" with a dear friend from college over my being upset by what I see is a monolit...

Wimbledon Spoiler Alert*

CONGRATS Serena Williams for winning the 2015 Wimbledon Championship! Woot!!!

It's a Serena Slam....Again!!!

All majors in A row! (US Open, Wimbledon, French Open and Australian Open)

"For those that don’t know, ‘Serena Slam’ is the name given to the time period back in 2002/3 when she held all four major titles – at the same time.

And 12 and a half years after doing it once, she’s on the cusp of doing it again – even if she has banned journalists from asking her about it....

For those that can’t be bothered to count them all out (we don’t blame you), she’s won 27 slam matches in a row.

27. In a row."

- Metro U
And now 28!!!

A Serena Slam!

G.O.A.T.!!!!!

(Greatest of all time!!)

I love this video. It's so creative and love the fact it's made up from the creativity and minds of so many different people! Well done! The song rocks too! I keep playing it over and over again even though radio plays it every 4 songs! ha!

FYI!
Many SEOs, especially those new to the game, have a constant feeling of uncertainty. They spend weeks or months working, but it’s really hard to see if

Check out my interpretation of this style!

Introduction

The word according to the Book of JJ

In the year....

1992 - Took a  college job creating content for one of the earliest websites in history while working at the University of Maryland Office of Technology.

1994 – Got ambitious and applied for a coveted intern slot at U.S. News & World Report and was the only non-Ivy-league student awarded a plum spot. It was there I realized I didn’t want to become a journalist after all. Maybe my dad was right. I argue a lot. Law is my field.

1995 - Enrolled in law school at the Catholic University, destined to be a top telecom lawyer.

1998 –Scored a gig teaching advocacy to Georgetown University Law Students after graduating from law school. Was great. I got to be a big fish in a small pond.

2000 – Saw the ocean across the way and left the small pond and headed to a big sea and became an Associate at an international law firm. I was the only black lawyer in our DC office.

2002- Dubbed my professor years, guest spoke at Yale Law, taught media Law at my alma matter U of MD and lectured at Penn State.

2004 -Convinced 6 of my college girlfriends to start our own blog where we’d talk about our passions: handbags, shoes and politics.  We were going to blow up, I told them. Gig on the Side was its name

2005- Jilted by the failure to become a super blogger, I became Asst General Counsel and at one time was the only communications regulator for the District of Columbia. I negotiated franchise agreements on behalf of then Mayor Anthony Williams and lobbied future Mayor Adrian Fenty.

2005- Struck it on my own, formed a law firm and PR firm. I repped national communications companies and nonprofits

2007 – Started plotting world online domination. Dubbed myself a social butterfly and commenced to joining , moderating, leading, writing, antagonizing, stoking and agitating my way through various blogs.

2010- Went to the White House and was 1 of 22 bloggers at the first African American Online Summit

2011- Served as amici counsel before US Supreme Court on behalf of a coalition of national organizations including Public Knowledge, Media Access Project The NAACP, RainbowPUSH, NOW, The Urban League and others.
