The Anti-Damsel Blogathon: Schedule!!!



They’re almost here, those daring dames and you wonderful people who will be paying tribute to them! My co-host and I have split the bill so, I’ll be featuring the posts for Saturday and then Fritzi of Movies Silently will be taking over on Sunday.

No worries if you need to switch days, just drop us a line and we’ll shove you around!

Also, if there’s a problem with the links, spelling or if you’ve mysteriously disappeared from the roster, then let us know ASAP and you’ll be with us again.

We truly can’t wait to see ya… I can already feel the smoke in my face…
