Hello, everyone. Welcome in to The GeoGee Experience Monthly Wrap-up and shout out. The GGEMWS is a post that curates some of our popular content, news worthy events, and pop-offs of interest from the previous month that is now history. The GGEMWS is also a platform where we say “Whatz” up to some of our blogging friends and show our gratitude to new followers and gracious sharers of our content.
June 2016 was an awesome month for us. We got “The GeoGee Magazine” up and running on Medium. The GeoGee Experience Magazine is an online magazine that focuses on culture, social issues, technology, entertainment, and news worthy content. While our target demographic is Black we court a diverse consumption of our content with the goal being to build a bridge that educates all demographics to a loftier level of understanding and appreciation for and of each other. The magazine that resides online offers larger images, short posts, and articles (we do feature long reads from time to time) and a lot of time sensitive content. The biggest feature of the magazine is we solicit the work of other bloggers seeking an additional platform of exposure for their work.
We want to thank all of you that embraced the magazine so quickly. Two weeks into it we had two of our stories be featured on Medium’s homepage. That’s huge – it would not have happened without your support.
I would be remiss in reciprocating my blessings if I missed an opportunity to say Whatz up to Lady G and Ron Brown over at seekthebestblog. Both are some awesome writers and can weave true stories that shuts down some of the most creative fiction you’ll ever come across. They’re also good damn peeps. They have come in here grabbed a chair got themselves a plate of chicken “wangs” and poured some “Red” Kool-Aide and been supportive of this platform every day. We call them primary investors – and we don’t forget people that invest time in what we do.
So Ron and Gwin – we love ya’ll. Geo loves ya’ll. Check out this awesome piece from Ron Brown HERE. And Gwin’s My Jams series is a yearly walk back in musical heaven that is laced with stories from the year the R&B highlights were at their highest. Go
And Gwin’s My Jams series is a yearly walk back in musical heaven that is laced with stories from the year the R&B highlights were at their highest. Go HERE to see why I spend Thursdays at Lady G’s spot. Oh and ladies and gents – not only are these bloggers talented – they’re nice to look at – real eazy on the eyes.
Shelby Courtland. She hits hard she cut deep with truths that will make you regurgitate any lies you may have swallowed. This is one blog that is a movement within itself. If you pull up on this sister , make sure you’ve done your homework on whatever you are pulling up on her about. Love ya Shelby!

We wanna positively clap back at Deirdre Gaffney Kennedy from Medium who followed GeoGee on Medium. Deidre’s spot has some real talk about HIV.
Sidakid from Medium liked this from our post-Jesse Williams Just Bet it All on Black.
“The burden of the brutalized is not to comfort the bystander.That’s not our job, alright — stop with all that. If you have a critique for the resistance, for our resistance, then you better have an established record of critique of our oppression. If you have no interest, if you have no interest in equal rights for black people then do not make suggestions to those who do. Sit down.” — Jesse Williams 6–26–2016
Ilana D from Medium felt strongly about Viacom removing vids of Jesse Williams 2016 BET Humanitarian Award from YouTube. We agreed with her. Thanks for the read Ilana.Click Ilana D link at the beginning of this paragraph to check her out.

Geo’s Fav Images From The GeoGee Experience June 2016
Geo’s favorite vid of the moment is one of some folks changing 4 tires in somewhere around 2 seconds. And it takes us how long to PUT AIR IN ONE TIRE?
June 2016 was quite the month. Thanks to any eye reading this I want you to know none of this would be possible without you.
Stay tuned and keep reading.
Gee and the staff at The GeoGee Experience.
