Recap Review, July 27 Edition

It keeps getting better and better here at Digg, with blog reviews for blogs covering a wide variety of topics of interest and information.

Week In Review, July 27, 2009

  • To start off the week, we went over to the Baby Blog Addict.  This blog will give you all the parenting and pregnancy advice and information you want, and help to feed that inner parenting blog-reading addiction.
  • Having satisfied that urge, we moved on for more personal improvement and self-development, stopping in to visit with Erin Falconer and the team at Pick the Brain–a blog for better and bigger common-sense self-improvement.
  • Whatever is on your mind and the minds of others at My Thinking Life is the topic of this open-ended blog.  Quality posts of unlimited interest are what you’ll find here.
  • Finding better paths to effective education is the name of the game at Instructify, led by Bill Ferris.  It’s a blog where educators can get down to business, without any of the unwanted political distractions.
  • There’s nothing like a sweet ending to round out your week, and this blog has it–in just the right balanced proportions, of course.  At Carrots N Cake, you can have your cake and enjoy a balance of good health and eating, too!

Although those are all the blog reviews we have for theis week, they are certainly not all of them!  Check out last week’s Recap Review for even more!

Pick The Brain

Pick the Brain is taking on self improvement and motivation on the blog’s own terms—which just happens to be something bigger than your average self improvement blog.

Pick The Brain – Why You Should Go

The foundation of Pick the brain is that we are more than just a single focused topic. Effective self improvement and personal motivation comes only through attending to the whole mind and body (in a very experiential and ‘common sense’ way). To that end, there is a great deal of information, strategies, and habits and actions that affect what we do and why; and so, there are a great many topics to be discussed as you continually strive to achieve your best life and maintain it through personal growth. It is for this reason that the blog takes a very broad, community approach to self improvement—because there is hardly ever only one ‘right’ answer, or one person who knows it.

From the site:

“ diverges from traditional “self-help” by taking a broader approach. Rather than sticking to a small set of topics, the site covers anything related to self improvement. Any information that people can use to live more prosperous, satisfying lives is a potential article…

“Rather than proposing a set of easy answers, PickTheBrain recognizes the challenges involved with sustainable self improvement. The advice we provide is rooted in personal experience and common sense. This site will help you use the strength of your own mind to create the environment you need to thrive.”

To broaden the perspective and information resources for readers, the blog, maintained by the parent site which is also named Pick the Brain, is attended to by a team of regular contributors led by editor Erin Falconer. Additionally, the blog welcomes guest bloggers with quality articles of interest. The end result is a truly community-oriented blog and support center aimed to help you personalize your path to a prosperous, fulfilling life.

Summing Up Pick The Brain

Pick The Brain has taken a slightly different approach to motivation and self improvement, and in so doing has created one of the most useful, comprehensive, and effective personal development blogs on the web.
