For years now — over a decade, in fact — the priority for Wednesday Boosterrific Blog posts has been whatever new comic was released that day that included a Booster Gold appearance. But 2020 is changing everything. Booster Gold isn't appearing in any new DC comic today because there are no new DC comics being released today.
As all comics buyers must know by now, DC Comics is no longer being distributed by Diamond Comics Distributors as of today, July 1. While Diamond mandated the release of comics on Wednesdays (for logistical purposes), DC is rolling back to Tuesdays (as it used to be before Diamond gained dominance in the 90s). I can't say that I really care about this one way or another other than the fact that I'm suddenly unsure when I should post "new release" alerts.
Some of you may recall that for the first 6 years of this blog, I posted 5 days a week. If that were still the case, I'd just move "new releases" from Wednesdays to Tuesdays. But I stopped posting 5-days-a-week because, frankly, there's just not that much new to say about a character DC has rarely chosen to spotlight positively in the New 52 era. I've been very happy posting three days a week and would like to continue that pace, if I can make a schedule work that doesn't alienate readers.
Should I maintain the Monday/Wednesday/Friday schedule and post about new comics on Monday instead of Wednesday? Or should I change the three days I post to include a Tuesday (probably a Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday posting schedule) so that I can keep you informed of day and date releases? Or, should I just keep posting new releases on Wednesday, since that's when Diamond will keep releasing books and you might as well make one trip for everything?

The fans have spoken, and they've said pretty much what I'd expected.
Last week's poll question: Should Booster Gold be in a romantic relationship with Harley Quinn? (48 votes)
Let's see. In the past 35 years, Booster Gold's biggest romantic liaisons have been with a spoiled movie star, a Senator's daughter turned super hero, an entertainment critic, and now an insane psychiatrist. Our boy doesn't really have a "type," does he?

The first time Harley Quinn and Booster Gold met at a lunch counter in Heroes in Crisis #1, they didn't exactly hit it off.
A little over a year later, when they were re-introduced in a meet-cute in a karaoke bar in Harley Quinn #70, their relationship took a considerably different turn.
That's quite an emotional one-eighty. It sure looks like someone needs relationship counseling.
Personally, I've never been much into 'shipping. I've typically tried to keep my nose out of other people's personal business in the hopes that they would return the favor. Generally speaking, I think Booster Gold should be able to date whoever he likes.
Harley Quinn, Booster? Really? Do you really think it's a good idea to make goo-goo eyes at the Joker's crazy former flame? Does anyone?

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.
