Twenty percent is hardly an insignificant number.
Last week's poll question: Do you visit Boosterrific.com on Facebook? (52 votes)
Those "occasionally" voters wouldn't be too bothered if I just dropped Facebook, but the four of you who voted "often," you four shouldn't be punished for enjoying Boosterrific.com your way.
I tell you what: I won't turn off my Facebook pushes or close the page immediately. However, be warned that if they make it harder (or more expensive) for me to keep doing it than they already do, that will probably be the last straw.
Thanks to all who voted.

I interrupt this Booster Gold blog to ask a serious question: should I continue to maintain a Facebook page for Boosterrific.com?
I created the Boosterrific.com fan page on Facebook 8 years ago this month as a convenience for those fans who also spend a great deal of time on the world's largest social media site. While I don't want to lose those (or any) readers, I personally dislike using the site and would prefer if I could just ignore it entirely.
Therefore, the question becomes how valuable is it for me to maintain that relationship with a service I find increasingly unpalatable? Is having a Facebook page for Boosterrific.com necessary to maintain readership?
To answer that question, I need your help telling me how useful you, the Booster Gold fan, consider Boosterrific.com's Facebook presence to be.
This week's poll question: Do you visit Boosterrific.com on Facebook? Please visit the Boosterrific Polls page to view results for this week's poll.
Thank you for your support.

Back in May, I mentioned here on the blog that I was really taken by a Skeets knit hat worn by a cosplayer.
My friend Michael heard my plea, and as an early birthday present, he gifted me with a Skeets to call my own!
The hat was knitted by the very talented Shanay Cobb who had only the photo from my previous post to work with. You can see more of Cobb's work at StarvinArtSC.Tumblr.com and Facebook.com/StarvingArtistSC.
Thanks, Michael and Shanay. My ears are sure to be well protected this winter now that Skeets is on the job!

To my great surprise, when looking back at the year that was here at Boosterrific.com, none of the posts that generated any significant "heat" had anything to do with Convergence or Bat-Mite or anything DC Comics was doing. In fact, the number one most visited post was this one featuring cosplayer Muyra that ran in February.
Proving once again that no one can resist a good looking guy in gold tights. You can find more of Muyra's work on Facebook.
Happy New Year, everyone.

I'd like to end the week with an extra special thank you to Logan Peterson and Shawn Baston, without whom the Boosterrific.com database wouldn't be nearly complete enough.
No Booster Gold collector needs to feel bad if their collection never includes either of these minor appearances, but we're all better off as a community because we have people like these two watching out for the rest of us. Thank you!
[UPDATE 2015-03-26: Kenneth Baillargeon tried to tell me about the Secret Origins appearance on Facebook the week it came out, but I didn't spot that until just now. I'm sorry for not crediting you earlier, Kenneth. I'm not good with the Facebook. (Because, yes, I'm a grumpy old man.) So if anyone needs to reach me, you can find me at webmaster at boosterrific dot com.]
