Post Heinlein on Facebook -- The Heinlein Society facebook page
As I agreed I will share the stuff I post on Facebook. I need to caution you, the stuff I post on Facebook will be boring, juvenile, old, repetitive, etc. I watch the statistics to learn what material the readers like and I post stuff I know will draw the most views. Just now they seem to like Heinlein's sayings. This is my last post.

Look, friends, the only possible way to enjoy life is not to be afraid to die. A zest for living requires a willingness to die; you cannot have the first without the second. The '60s and '70s and '80s and '90s can be loaded with the zest for living, high excitement, and gutsy adventure for any truly human person. Truly human? I mean you descendants of cavemen who outlasted the saber-tooth, you who sprang from the loins of the Vikings, you whose ancestors fought the Crusades and were numbered the Golden Horde. Death is the lot of all of us and the only way the human race has ever conquered death is by treating it with contempt. By living every golden minute as if one had all eternity.

Like it or not, it is what it is. I try to do the best I can with what I have to work with. My goal is to attract new people to Heinlein and to give them new things to learn. Facebook users are not at the level of the folks on the Forum. Probably never will be either. By increasing the audience maybe I'll snag some new readers from time to time. If you guys have ideas for posts on THS Facebook page please let me know. Or you can go do your own posts. Later.

I by no means mean to discourage you.

I'll note only that no matter how revolutionary the new tool, platform or venue, and no matter how exhausting the effort put into cranking it, the pool of Heinlein aficionados never really seems to get any bigger. For all those who get briefly captured, it's the same ten dozen people, year in and year out, with about as many new stayers as old leavers.

FB is in some ways a bigger net, but catching fifty thousand people who make one comment about reading Stranger back in high school and then move on isn't really a gain over catching five thousand or five hundred or fifty using lesser tech.

But I only spent about 25 out of the last 30 years trying, so what do I know...

But, people who did read Stranger in high school should have a place to talk about it with each other.

This I posted on Jan. 24.

Last week I posted an accounting of the 2007 Heinlein Centennial Celebration In Kansas City. As a result Bill Patterson offered a new article about the Centennial from The Heinlein Journal. I hope you enjoy reading it and thanks to Bill for sharing.
The Robert A Heinlein Centennial | The Heinlein Society
Link=[http://www.heinleinsociety.org/thsnexus/posting.php?mode=reply&f=8&t=1398]
The Centennial celebration of Robert A Heinlein’s birth took place in Kansas City over the period from Thursday July 5 to Sunday July 8, 2007.

This is an article that will appear in the next Journal.

Jim, you're correct. I get very few responses and/or discussions from my posts. The visitors that click LIKE on my posts are usually the same ones. Many others come and go. Some stay a short while. However, the number of people 'seeing the posts' and 'liking the page' keep going up. I'm going to keep after it, but I think after a short while the numbers are going to start going down as I run out of new material to give them. Cheers..

Don't give up. But keep your expectations reasonable.

It should be the goal of THS to reach every single person with a sustained level of interest in Heinlein, and I don't think the efforts are exhausted yet. It can be frustrating to find those 1:100000's and then keep them engaged, but the goal is worthy.
