I haven’t been on 43things recently partially due to this goal. I couldn’t think of a new way to give cheers and I felt the pressure of working on this goal if I got on. I think that dropping the goal will increase my enjoyment of this site and get me back here regularly again.

This was a somewhat disappointing method. I thought there would be lots of active cheers goals but that doesn’t seem to be the case. Most of the goals are about giving out a specific number of cheers. Oh well, not every method will be a winner.
I started with the first goal listed on the 43 things main page and found the most recent cheered entry for that goal. I then found the most recent cheerer of that entry and gave that person a cheer on their goal with the most recent entry that was cheered. I did this repeatedly until all of my cheers were gone.
It was a lot of fun to do this. I came across and cheered one of the people I’m subscribed to and came across several others I’ve cheered before. I also found some people I hadn’t seen before and gave them some cheers too.
This one was fun because it gave me a chance to give back to people who’ve taken the time to give to me.
Today I gave out cheers to the goals that are listed on the main page saying something like “Susie wants to learn to draw”. After following the link to their goals, I checked to see if they’d posted an entry for any of their goals in the last week and cheered the goal listed in the main list.
Interestingly enough one person had a goal listed on the main page that didn’t appear in their list.
I found this method a lot of fun because I found people who were active and a lot of people who seem to have stopped using 43 things.
It was relatively easy to do and the cheers went quickly.
I’ve gone to people who have the same goals I have and given cheers to people who’ve recently put entries onto the goal. However I gave them cheers for a different goal than the one we share.
I usually give away cheers by first looking at who cheered me and giving those people cheers first if I haven’t cheered them recently. After those are given out I’ll go to the recent entries in Zeitgeist and look for ones that interest me or just visit the profiles of the people who’ve created the most recent entries and cheer one of their goals.
I’m not sure how I’ll give cheers out each day, but I’ll post how I’ve given them out at the end of the day.
