Week Five Thing #11
As I sat on my couch tonight to tackle my homework, I could not help but turn on the television to have as background noise. One of my casual shows is "The Biggest Loser." I can't say I'm a religious fan; however, I do watch it when I find myself home during the time that it airs. Once I had finished thing #10, I felt motivated to work on #11. I felt this assignment gave a little element of choice between professional and personal websites that a person would enjoy. I chose to review the short list after I was so overwhelmed with the Google Blog search from our last week. I appreciated the alphabetical order of categories and could not help but choice a health site entitled: PeerTrainer. It has been a goal of mine to stick with a specific health regimen, and I found this website to be a wealth of information as well as motivation. I also enjoyed that the majority of this websites offerings were free. With so much information, I found myself engrossed in the articles. The final verdict: I signed up for a membership and am looking forward to the changes that it ensues. On a final note, though the website I chose to explore is not directly related to library or my current profession, I think it is of paramount importance that sometimes we do put our well-being first. Trying to stay on top of every new concept, technology included, can be exhausting and time-consuming. To truly be fantastic teachers or librarians we have to find the balance between work and home.
