The Week in Review

Big thanks to The Candy Pitch, readers at Mister Burlesque and Jo Weldon on her LiveJournal page and posting to the Burlesque Today group for sending traffic this way.

It was a great way to start off our first week here with actual comments and discussion rather than crickets chirping. Thank you to this week's contributors:

Cherche LaFemme
Holly Rebelle
Jack Midnight
Jo Weldon
Laura Herbert
Michelle Baldwin
Paris Green
RunAround Sue
Scarlett Letter
Zeugma aka Jezebel Express

Please feel free to continue posting to any topic from previous weeks. Topics will always remain open. If they get too far gone down the blog, feel free to call for a bump and I will re-post the questions so you don't have to search the archives for them.
