    I was MalagaCove at both the old 43t and PC. Also had another handle on my 43t account, from 2005 on.

    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.

    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.

    Hi!!

    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) -

    Tyanne (2006)
    Tahitianna (2008)
    Tiny Dancer (2009)
    Courageous Heart (2009)
    Teahupoo (2014)
    Papeeno (2015)

    You can also find me on Twitter @joycultivation and on Pinterest as Joy Cultivation

    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...)

    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.

    ligemst Doing 7 cheers 2017-02-18 14:24:45

    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.

    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!

      @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.

    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!

    Cheers!!

    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!
