Booking Through Thursday: But What About Me?

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.


  1. I've never done BTT, but I have definitely made LibraryThing Tuesday a habit.

  2. I participated in BTT because of its thought-provoking questions. The longer I have been doing it, I more I am grateful for its community building effort. It rules!

  3. Great answer. I agree - it's interesting to see how we all have different opinions on each topic.

  4. I love the sharing and getting to know new people and to see what they enjoy to read.

  5. Great answer. I like all those things as well.


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
