Jack and Jill Politics is at number 13 this month in the Black Blog Rankings (BBR) — up from #24 in Dec 2007 . Do I hear Weezy singing “Movin’ on up!”… ? This gives us an honorable mention. The rankings rely on Technorati authority and rank — which means we have you to thank for moving up. So — Thanks for stopping by.

Here’s #1-10 in case y’all are interested. Congratulations to all.

  1. The Bossip: (Authority: 1,173 / Rank: 2,023) – [Entertainment] is the third Black blog in the past three months to take over the BBR #1 slot. is a fast growing urban-focused new media property that draws a loyal following of young and influential trend setters who are up to date with what’s hot in society. We don’t know if The Bossip is a brother or sister … but, we do know that What About Our Daughters ain’t happy with The Bossip for calling Maya Angelou a ‘ho’. Hey Bossip … any response to WAOD concerns?
  2. Pam Spaulding: Pam’s House Blend (Authority: 1,167 / Rank: 2,047) – [Politics] This is a prolific blog with a number of contributors that shares candid thoughts on politics and invites others to join in the debate. Pam shared some blogging tips with us recently. She wrote, “Are there secrets to getting eyeballs? Hmmm. I don’t think so, though having religious right nutcases calling you “a leading source of radical homosexual propaganda, anti-Christian bigotry, and radical transgender advocacy” probably helps. Seriously, there is no one suggestion to gain larger readership. It’s luck, timing, and blogwhoring at other sites similar to yours to entice readers to take a peek at your stuff. Having your own “voice” that stands out as different as well as authentic and true to yourself helps a lot.”
  3. Angel Laws: Concrete Loop* (Authority: 1,128 / Rank: 2,199) – [Entertainment] This is a Black celebrity entertainment blog with gossip, music, celebrity interviews, pictures and such. Angel Laws, a 22-year-old college student in Jacksonville, NC, started this blog as a hobby. It is now one of the top-ranked Black blogs in the world. Angel recently walked the red carpet herself. Have you seen your favorite celebrity on Angel’s blog?
  4. Debra Dickerson: MoJo Blog (Authority: 1,085 / Rank: 2,352) – [Politics] Mother Jones is an independent nonprofit whose roots lie in a commitment to social justice implemented through first rate investigative reporting. Debra Dickerson is the author of An American Story and The End of Blackness and a former intelligence officer in the U.S. Air Force. Admittedly, I am trying to determine if a blog owned by a non-profit should be on the BBR. What say u?
  5. Fresh Crunkjuice: Crunk & Disorderly* (Authority: 788 / Rank: 3,933) – [Entertainment] This blog was created in August 2004, however, it didn’t get serious until May 2005. This is an active entertainment blog that tackles the world of African American celebrity gossip. From Kanye West to the Reverend Al Sharpton, C&D takes no prisoners. I’m still hopeful to get some link-love from Yo’ Fresh on his Fresh Picks!
  6. ESKAY: Nah Right (Authority: 727 / Rank: 4,482) – [Entertainment] This is another Black blogger that is steadily moving up in the rankings. Some say that Nah Right is the most important East Coast hip-hop blog there is. His blog began in May 2005 and continues to thrive. Somebody tell ESKAY that we are looking for him to share his village voice with us on what it takes to grow a successful blog.
  7. Oliver Willis: Oliver Willis (Authority: 603 / Rank: 6,002) – [Politics] Oliver is a fan of the Washington Redskins. His blog alternates between posts on the NFL and presidential politics. He began his blog in April 2005 and we hope that he will share his village voice with us at some point.
  8. Natasha Eubanks: Young, Black & Fabulous (Authority: 591 / Rank: 8,840) – [Entertainment] Natasha moved her hot gossip blog to her own domain. Natasha is a law student who recently relocated to the Washington area, said she gets about 99 percent of the information she posts simply from researching the Internet out of her own curiosity and interest. Did you see when Natasha and Omarosa went after each other recently?
  9. La Shawn Barber: La Shawn Barber’s Corner (Authority: 542 / Rank: 7,033) – [Politics] Freelance writer La Shawn Barber offers political commentary from a Christian perspective. NPR News & Notes listed the 8/15/2007 Blogger’s Roundtable with Sis. Barber as one of their best shows in 2007. I ‘met’ Sis. Barber during NPR Blogger Roundtables that we did in Nov 2007 and Jan 2008. She is an insightful sister with a powerful political blog. She is shown in this photo with Pam Spaulding (BBR #2)
