Booking Through Thursday: But What About Me?December 3, 2009 at 11:26 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 2 Comments
This week’s Booking Through Thursday asks:
What’s your favorite part of Booking Through Thursday? Why do you participate (or not)?
Honestly, I like being asked a direct question that I can blather about. It’s so much easier to frame your thoughts in response to something specific! The questions are great, too. Some weeks I’m not able to check in on a Thursday, and then I kick myself when I see what the question was. It’s rare to find a question that leaves me with nothing to add to the discussion.
Of course the next best part is having a few dozen people all respond to the same topic. It’s the next best thing to having a live chat, with the improvement that 40 people aren’t trying to talk over each other at once.
The only reason I could think not to participate would be that it tends to draw commenters who say, “Nice, now come to my blog and read mine.” The assumption is that I haven’t already! As I remarked above, I won’t comment or post if I feel I have nothing to add. Lord knows I use up enough bandwidth rambling on about nonsense already, without duplicating someone else’s contribution on top of it.
