Working on ideas for a new personal mark. Which do you like? or do you even like either of them?

Feels like the direction you're taking is a bit too trendy. There are plenty of letters-in-a-shape logos. I would suggest branching out and trying something new.
@Pat Dryburgh Ya, I needed someone to say that. Logos are far from my comfort zone so I figured trendy might be a place to start but ya I should definitely branch out in a different direction, thanks!
They aren't my strong suit, either. So, I applaud your desire to try. If I were you, I would look out for logo designers you have or could have a relationship with, and see if they could help direct the process a bit. Maybe trade some logo work for web work or something along those lines. Or, just meet up for coffee and shoot ideas back and forth. I find having an outside perspective really helps.
Ya that's a great idea @Pat Dryburgh Thanks again for the advice.
The immediate recognition by me of this as a free typeface turns me off a bit. Wisdom script looks great, but is slipping very far into the overuse realm.
I appreciate the feedback @Josh Doll, I would be open to any kind of suggestions of different directions for this as logos are far from my cup of tea.
I'm not gonna knock the 'logo in a circle' concept, as that would be pretty hypocritical! But, I think that if you're going with a knockout J, make it a custom J. Custom, hand-made lettering usually speaks more about your personality than someone else's typeface.

Trying something a little more unique to create a shape for my name. The "r" on the right side is a flip of the "J" on the left. What I like about this is that I can pair it with text easily, it can live on its own in the corner of a site, or as a favicon and it can be put into a shape if I want to use in trendy situations like in a circle for example.
