How to learn how to use 43 Things
How I did it: (The following is from the website: http://supercrazylibrarianguy.wordpress.com/10-43-things/ - some things are a bit old, but most still apply. I followed this list to get myself acquainted with the site.)43 Things (http://www.43things.com/) is a site where you can make lists of things you want to accomplish, keep track of your goals, check off things that you’ve completed, and write about your experiences doing them. You can also see what kinds of things other users are doing, read about their experiences, and get ideas for ways to accomplish your own goals
1. Go to 43 Things (http://www.43things.com/).2. Create an account by clicking “Log In”3. Write one thing that you want to accomplish.4. See who else wants to do that.5. See what other goals 43 Things suggests are similar.6. Write a little bit about your goal.7. Make sure your email address gets verified.8. Remember that you don’t have to come up with 43 things right away, or ever.9. Read what other people with the same goal are saying about their goal.10. Add your city to your profile.11. Add a photo to your profile.12. List places you’d like to go at 43 Places (the link is on your profile).13. Create a “best of” list through the link at the bottom of your account.14. Log out and log back in again.15. Bookmark your profile.16. Add your profile URL to your Blogroll or list of links on your blog.17. Go back to the 43 Things website homepage, and click on one of the goals listed there.18. Click on one of the tags listed in “Today’s Tags.”19. Add another goal to your list.20. Add tags to that goal.21. Find other goals by following those tags.22. Learn about Cheers.23. Cheer someone.24. Set a deadline for one of your goals.25. Adjust the rate that you want 43 Things to remind you to pursue your goal.26. Write a blog post in your WordPress blog about your goal, with a link to the goal in the post.27. Create a del.icio.us link to your 43Things profile.28. ListAfterList (http://www.listafterlist.com/) is a site that is like a wiki and like 43Things – you can make lists there that only you can edit, or you can make a list in wiki mode, which allows others to edit it. Good be a nice tool for libraries to use to create recommended reading lists, readalikes, or sub-genre reading lists.
