The month in blogging:

June marked a new chapter for TMP as I ditched the daily blogging schedule and went down to five days a week, taking “off” days every Tuesday and Saturday. Five posts a week still generates plenty of fun on the blog, though!

In particular:

The rest of the month was filled with classic film reviews, which you can catch up on by visiting the TMP Archive (linked in the right-hand sidebar).

Hope you all had a wonderful month of movie-watching and are enjoying the first weeks of summer! Here’s to an equally great July.
