When I sent live tweets from the Joan Jett show last Wednesday, I realized that I like to use a lot of shorthand for song titles and various things in the Jett universe. For example, I would rather type JJBH instead of spelling out Joan Jett and the Blackhearts every single time.
Abbreviations like JJBH are common in the fandom for those of us who have been around awhile, but brand-new Joan Jett fans would probably not know what some of our terms mean. Imagine the “WTF?” moment that a casual Twitter user would experience if they had stumbled across a tweet from me that just said, “touch me.” And then imagine what would happen if they could find me after that. <Shudder>
Rather than make newbies figure everything out on their own, I thought it would be helpful to define some of the acronyms, abbreviations, and slang we use in one place. So, I added a glossary page to the site. Here’s the link (there’s also a tab for it at the top):
I started with the terms that I use often. Please check my work and make additions or corrections as necessary in the comments. Thanks!
