This week, BTT is asking why participants participate: "What's your favorite part of Booking Through Thursday? Why do you participate (or not)?"
You know, that's a question I've been asking myself lately. Why do I keep coming back here every week when I could be spending that time reading? Or sleeping. Or, well, doing something constructive and useful – like learning to knit or painting the kitchen. It's a good question and I'm not sure I really have a good answer.
I do like the interaction with other bloggers, of course. I definitely like to see all the different opinions and ideas and "takes" on each topic. And I like having a chance to air my own feelings on whatever subject is at hand. I like the fact that it's like a little once-a-week writing assignment – but one with an easy deadline and no grades to be handed out when it's turned in.
But I suppose finally it just boils down to addiction. I'm a very habitual person – if I do something twice, it becomes a ritual and I get upset if any changes are made. I think that's probably an indication that I was a cat in an earlier life (well, that and the fact that I don't like getting wet). So I suppose as long as Booking Through Thursday keeps throwing a new subject out there every week, I'll keep checking in to see what we all think about it.
