On August 29, 2011 I decided to create a blog that would focus on a folkloric approach to African American & other Black music and dance videos. Shortly thereafter, I decided to also feature information, videos, and comments about other Black cultural subjects such as Black talk (particularly African American Vernacular English), and the way we wear our hair (now and in the not too distant past).
I've learned a lot by researching these posts and I've enjoyed many of the posts that I've published. And, THANKS to all those who have visited this blog, a little more than three years after I started this volunteer blog, I noticed that pancocojams has reached the 1 million page view mark (all time history). Actually, as of right now (September 23, 2014 at 12:03 AM EST) this blog has had 1,000,107 page views (not counting my page views) since it was launched on August 29, 2011.
I sincerely appreciate your visits and your comments.
Here's some data that I want to keep for my records and that you may be interested in:

I really like the eclectic nature of that list and the other lists I'm documenting. I like that because it fits me.
You may have noticed that I try not to stay too long on one genre of music or dance or one subject such as vernacular/slang meanings. When I find that I'm doing that, I change it up -because I like it like that, and I hope at least some of you do too.
