And so another year of blogging draws to a close on The Raging Fanboy. A big thank you to all my subscribers, both old and new, for continuing to visit. Please feel free to spread the word and encourage others to visit my little corner of the Internet, as it would be a nice surprise for my blog to experience an increase in traffic for the first time since 2012 by the end of next year. 😦

See you all in 2015! πŸ™‚
