Much Ado about Nothing

Some days, like when we know there's a comic book with a Booster Gold appearance coming out, it's easy to come up with content for the Boosterrific Blog. Other days, like today, it's harder.

I'm sure I could dig up something. (The Internet is a big place.) But today I don't really feel like putting in the necessary effort. So in fairness to you, dear reader, let me explain why.

This blog was created for two reasons:

1) as a catch-all for noteworthy Booster Gold news and events that don't qualify to be cataloged elsewhere on this site, and

2) to provide a regular dose of new content to drive site traffic so that traffic can be monetized.

Since Boosterrific.com no longer serves any paying ads (admittedly in part because I was never able to create enough clickbait to generate enough site traffic to make that effort worthwhile), driving up visitor metrics isn't much of a motivator for me anymore.

That leaves me with only reason 1. And today, I'm not seeing any Booster Gold news or events that I consider noteworthy. Sure, there's yet another new rumor out there about the long-in-the-works "Booster Gold" television show's writing staff, but I prefer to leave the rumormongering to others.

Maybe things will be different next week. In the meantime, thanks for visiting.

Welcome to the New Boosterrific.com

This is not an April Fools joke. Boosterrific.com really has gotten a facelift for 2018!

Arg! Change is bad! Why did I do it? The last significant site redesign was nearly a decade ago, and people don't use the Internet in the same way in 2018 as they did in 2010. (For one thing, no one capitalizes the word "Internet" anymore.)

While I was beginning to feel that the site was looking a little stale, the chief purpose of this overhaul was twofold:

  1. to allow smartphone users greater access to the site. Previously, mobile devices only had access to a specially designed portal. Now every page should render in the narrower smartphone viewport, including the individual comic pages.

  2. to prepare for future changes. As I mentioned two weeks ago, Google's announcement of big changes to how they intend to police and present the web to its customers has me contemplating the best path forward. I don't know exactly what Google's changes are going to do to site traffic, but I do know that I wanted this aging site to be nimble enough to survive whatever hunger games Google sets off.

As always, thank you for your patience as I work through this site overhaul. There are definitely still some bugs to work out and some site functionality has yet to be fully restored (like the next/last issue buttons for the comics details pages). If you stumble across something that doesn't seem to be working to your satisfaction, please drop me a line. The contact form is working fine, and you can always send an email to webmaster at Boosterrific.com.

Thank you to everyone who has ever visited. You have all contributed to making Boosterrific.com the Internet's greatest Booster Gold archive.

Boosterrific.com: New and Improved!

You may have already noticed that a map app has been added to track all of the locations that Booster Gold has visited. You can see it here. The source material has not been fully parsed for locations just yet, but it's off to a good start.

On a related note, you may notice that locations have begun appearing in entries for each issue. Eventually, each issue will have it's entire setting, both time and place, logged in the database, but there is still a lot of work to do yet. Sorry for the delay: there are a lot of comic books out there, and only one Boosterrific.com.
