  1. Hi Jill,
    I came here from Facebook and as always I am so impressed with the way you write your very important message!
    Kol hakavod!

  2. Thank you, Risa! I really appreciate you’re following the Blog so regularly


  3. Hi Jill,
    It’s me again. I wrote about you here:
    I still admire the blog and your writing.

  4. Thank you, Risa. It is important to me that someone out there in the wide, wide world is taking my words to heart.


  5. Hi Jill, I read through your article and found it very interesting. I am currently putting together a documentary on the darker aspects of the internet and one of those parts is where I touch on the predators on-line who groom young children. Would it be ok for me to use 2 of the images from your blog? The first being the young girl at her computer and the second being the girl in the corner with the shadow over her? If not I’d completely understand and if needed, I am willing to pay if you have them under copyright.

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    • Hi Mat,
      Thank you for writing. The images I used are not copyrighted. Please feel free to use them. And please send me a link to your website. Self-defense strategies Social Media and the Internet are vital for a world in which the Vital and the Actual often masquerade as one another.

      • That’s brilliant 🙂 Thank you for getting back to me. My web site is actually more a comedy focused Web site (satirical reviews) but they’re hoping to branch out and this project they’ve allocated a number of people is a way to see how people respond to it. I think about 6 people have been given it, I’m the only one who has chosen to take it in a serious direction so as soon as the video is uploaded (which should be some time next week) I’ll pop a link to my blip channel here for you. Thanks again 🙂

  6. Hi Jill 🙂

    Sorry it’s taken me so long to get back. My doc is finished and now online, Thank you again for allowing me to use the images.
