I was MalagaCove at both the old 43t and PC. Also had another handle on my 43t account, from 2005 on.
So weird end exciting (or should I say supexiting) to be back on 43T after all this time!
So weird to be back on 43T after all this time! Hoping to see many of my old 43T friends here!
I was a regular on the original 43T who joined shortly after my first husband died. The people there got me through my mourning, next relationship, and were the first people to whom I revealed that I was falling for the man who became my second husband. I'm leery of revealing my old names, but hope y'all will recognize me from my story. I wrote quite a lot of poems, moved to California, and do hope you'll contact me if any of this rings a bell.
@corapearl happy to see you again
it's interesting that the groups of old friends overlap each other
I just found that we can reorder our goal list! Yay!
@spatz Hello! Did you figure out how to do it?
@flycketh it's drag and drop, you can drag entries in list view. There's a how to in the help section - hope it helps!
Taking on a different name than I had on PC and orig 43T for a fresh start. Happy to see you all!
I was previously on the site 2006-2011 as westgXCfreak and previously as sportytrackgirl.
I was a member of the old 43 Things for 9 years and I had online conversations with people from all over the world during that time. I look forward to reconnecting with some of them and with making new connections as well.
@douglivingwell I remember you! (-:
I have been on 43Things since 2005!! I was quite active and completely devastated when the site shut down. Over more than a decade I had multiple accounts - there were a number of times when I completely deleted my account and started with a fresh, shiny new slate. Just to let go of past stuff and start anew.
Previous usernames (yes, some were named after Tahitian surf breaks) -
Tiny Dancer (2009)
Courageous Heart (2009)
You can also find me on Twitter @joycultivation and on Pinterest as Joy Cultivation
@joycultivation very happy to see you again!
@joycultivation Glad to know I've known you since you were Tyanne <3
Hi guys !
I used to go by StarPrincess on the old 43
And I used the TigerWoman name during my short-lived attempt on PC
@tigerwoman OMG your entry was literally the FIRST entry I saw since signing up for the new site!! Destiny!! I did not even have to hunt you down - it just popped up! And - we found each other again YAY. I love how the universe works like that. :)
@joycultivation YAY !
Um, Think BuffaloBoy is in da House!
I'm not seeing how to read up on what my friends have updated. Is that not a feature here?
@crunchybread It can be done via the feed icon - it's linked in your profile. Did you try that? It's not perfect but a good start.
Hello! I used to go by cketh. Nice to be back!
Hello!! Anne here, it's good to be back! :)
@anne89 Hey Anne, how have you been ??
Look for old goal "draw more" friends!
LOB is here, but I am fantomenmom now.
It is amazing how many familiar names I can see here. This is exciting.
Feeling teary that a community might be possible to recreate here.
After a nearly three year journey through the barren wilderness, it is heartening to see what looks like a revival of the old 43 Things concept. This is a resource and a community that I have deeply missed. I can tell that there is going to be a lot that is different and will take some getting used to. I also find it encouraging that the recreators of this site appear agreeable to adapting it to bring it closer in functionality to the old site. I am joining in under my original screen name and avatar and some of the goals I was working on before the old site shut down, plus a couple of new ones. I look forward to reconnecting with my old friends who find their way here, and also meeting new people who I may have not had a chance to meet before. (Advisory: you may have to "reintroduce" yourself to me since it has been quite a while for me...)
@tarrador Your username is familiar to me. I was simplyli for a long while.
@tarrador I am really glad you're on here. There are certain people who I missed reading, and you are definitely one of them.
@starstuff Great to see you back, too! I hope you find this platform conducive to writing some of your great, insightful posts!
Hello, Friends! Welcome back!
@crunchybread yay! Haven't seen you around for a while
It looks like this site is beginning to take shape... Happy to be able to cheer :-)
I'm not sure I can even do this because I don't remember my old username (something overly poetic about trains rings a bell??) and the last time I remember being active I was only about 16/17 years old (which feels like a lifetime ago now- literally, it was three lifetimes ago, if you count my children.)
Maybe I should change this to make new friends.
Either way, I am ridiculously excited to be back, this was always my favourite online community.
@kitferal I don't know if we were friends before or not, but either way, welcome back! :)
I modified my UserID to include a T in it to stand for Today. I see many names that I do not recognize. Although in my privacy setting I put do not display my real name, I'm not sure if it did or not. So I changed it to LIGEMS-T.
In 43T, I was Living In God's Exquisite, Miraculous Sufficiency. That is a really long name, so in PopClogs I shorted it to be an acronym. For here, I added the "-T" to it treasure the moments of each day and just used the acronym. It's me evolving.
I wonder how many people on here it shows their name and not their former UserID.
It would really be nice if 43T, v2 allowed you to put titles to your posts.
@ligemst Oh, I remember you!!! So glad!
Looking for old 43T friends...
Gettin' better everyday. Shout out to the new 'Bots, or whatever they want to be called.........I suppose they're not 'Bots, technically, unless any one among them were part of the Robot Collective eh? So, what moniker are we assigning their Royal 43 Reviving Majesties? The Revivers? LOL
@beequeen Lol Lazarus! Or, the Lazarus collective.
@hopeslife I like the Laz Collective !:D
@jlittle Lol me too! Have absolutely no idea where that came from.
@beequeen Yay thanks for that!
We got a feed! Right from your profile! And we can cheer comments! And replies! And the typing is fixed! Yay! Thank you @kuntzman and @sahlavit ! Wonderful!
@spatz YAAAASSSSSSSS!!! Been cheering my behind off for the last 15 minutes....!!!!!!!!!
@spatz Yes! Very happy about cheering comments!
Oooo cheering comments is now possible <3
Hi everyone, Queen purrs like a kitten is back on board thanks to @choosejoy who let me know it was back! Even got my old user name back!
I am trying to find a friend I made the first time round called Julie Davis. I think from memory she was in mi usa. Her user name was "Jade Cat" I believe. Our youngest children were similar ages. If anyone knows of Julie I'd love to touch base.
@Queen Purrs Like A Kitten I remember Julie, but I haven't seen her. I would love to see miss manx or lady of manx to return, and so many more of our old friends!
@wyverndust I remember Miss Manx, I ended up penpalling with her for a while, Im sure its the same one she was an Aussie girl living on Isle of Man (where my ancestors come from) and she moved back home to Australia, I think living in Sth Australia now,
@Queen Purrs Like A Kitten wow I believe that is Miss Manx! amazing!
@wyverndust I found her on Facebook! I told her about the new site and asked her to come back as you were looking for her, she said she's just started a new job and is really busy but she might come back. Yay!
@Queen Purrs Like A Kitten well done! amazing! thank you so much!!!
Lol, I just followed all of you, and then some!
@hopeslife Girl, you are SUCH a darlin'.
@beequeen Wow thanks for that! Don't think I've ever been called that before.
I am back on 43things! Frankly, I am not loving (or liking) the new layout but my loyalty to this website (and fellow 43Trs) overrides my distaste! Cheers to new goals and new adventures!
This feels like moving back into a neighborhood I once lived in and loved; the structures have changed, but the people are familiar.
It makes me sad that 43Things 2.0 has a limit on goal length. I tried to re-add an old 1.0 goal and it cut off. I need to break it into smaller chunks I guess. And I bet 33 other people are disappointed too!
@justtryingtogetalong At which point were you cut off? the 140 character mark?
@justtryingtogetalong I thought you might be someone I knew there; you'd definitely remember me if you were. LOL
@hope Yep, 140 is the limit
@justtryingtogetalong OK that's a bit ridiculous, 43T is not Twitter!!!!!! Lol definitely not like Twitter at all!
@justtryingtogetalong Lol would you like me to write an entry about this on the "suggest what I would like to see on 43Things" goal, or do you want to do it.
Some people have been cheering me, but how? Is it "pay-per-cheer"????? Thx for the cheers peeps, I just can't return them yet.......Hawk, darling, ever the rascal (re the cheer button comment), how I love thee Mr.Meister.........ahhhhhh, its good to be back......
@hope Thank you Noelle!
@beequeen unfortunately, you cannot cheer comments yet. I am sure the site developers are working on a lot of enhancement ideas
@beequeen I kinda liked the limited cheers as well. It made cheering more rewarding. And cheerboms! Do you rember them? It was so crazy when you tried to return all the 100+ cheers that you have got overnight :D
@beequeen , you can cheer comments now!! Click on the heart.
Good to see a lot of old familiar faces. Been a long time.
@ifyouregonnascreamthanscreamwithme Hi there sweetie :-)Isn't it lovely? Can't believe how happy it's making me! <3 x
@ladygrinningsoul I was a little indifferent about it at first, but seeing you and some of the other old school heavy hitters around here is starting to give me hope : )
If I miss your mentions, I'm sorry! They're particularly hard to find when a goal has lots of activity. Lol this is why linking to the individual comment would be better.
@hope Indeed it is.......dang.....and I thought PopClogs threads were a cluster........LOL
@beequeen Well the good thing about PopClogs threads were that you could easily find the comment replies, or at least I could. Although once they were removed from your notifications, you really had to go fishing! The bad thing about PopClogs in general was that it only let you cheer goals, not people.
Can't wait for this site to run properly... Am looking forward to be able to catch up with people and to be able to cheer them... My finger awaits that cheer button
@flowergirl I cheered you just for your -very true- comment on cheers! ;)
@nudgethecurmudgeon It just hasn't felt right without that option... Huge part of 43 things... It felt odd not being able to do it...
Now I feel more comfortable posting. I don't have to use my real name. I've chosen to start fresh, new name, new me, new goals.
@justtryingtogetalong I'm glad you experienced the same thing (with swapping real w/ pseudo name)! I thought I was crazy! Oh and BTW, you just got another follower ;)
@justtryingtogetalong I also have a new name on Popclogs and here. I found out that someone from RL was reading my list! So I went incognito...
Just want to thank everyone for following me again, lol!
March bootcamp idea: Momentum
So we’ve come back to 43Things (yay!), we’ve started filling up our lists and are reconnecting with old friends from the site. Now it’s time to get going on those goals too. ;) Remember bootcamps?
How about trying to build some momentum here together? To get us all off to a good start with the new 43T!
Building momentum can look like anything: writing a first entry for your most important goals, taking baby steps forward on all or some goals, focusing on actually completing one specific goal, implementing new habits, simply getting your list of goals ready and knowing what you’re going to be working on next, or whatever will make you feel like you’re on the right track!
As usual, everyone is welcome to suggest themes of their own and then we’ll vote at the end of the month! I just thought I'd get things started. : ) Hoping some of you will want to join in!
@Vinter I'd definitely join that one!
@Vinter yes to the momentum bootcamp!
Yay! I'll set it up soon. :)
@diamondlightfoot @librarysteg @artfellow @hopeslife @nicole
Okay, here it is!
@Vinter Yay for bootcamps/challenges!
Erm........where's the cheer button??????
@beequeen Oh dear, BeeQueen, it's not like you to forget where the cheer button is. ;-)
@beequeen tried to make a cheer emoji but it kind of looks obscene
@wyverndust Hey! I can do that! LOL
@spatz Ha ha! You remember my BEECHEERS? That's funny!
Hey beauties! Tis me, the Bee. Nice to see y'all; glad to see many familiar names, faces. Mwah!! xo I was BeeQueen or BQRedux on the old 43 site.
@beequeen I know I have this auto reaction to cheer and sadly am not able to. Hope it won't be too long, doesn't feel quite right without it :-)
@beequeen Ah, I remember you and your witty entries from those years ago! Great to see you here again!
@meditation7 Hi M7, BEECHEER!
Hi everybody i was fredvoorhies before
I can't actually remember what year I started using 43Things before the site went down but I'd say three years at the very least! I really enjoyed the positive and encouraging community as well as the user friendliness of the website itself. Some of the goals I achieved during that time was starting a vege garden and going travelling overseas - and along with other goals they have played a big part in shaping the person I am today. I am so happy that this website is up and running again and that someone has put in lots of hard work bringing it back. I don't know who you are but thanks for all you've done so far!
Hello, everyone. This should be interesting.
After saving, it will be sealed for 2 years. Are you sure you wrote everything you want?
Stay motivated! Remind yourself of your goal.
and stop after
I truly believe Augustine’s words are true and if you look at history you know it is true. There are many people in the world.
