43 Things

I think I’m officially addicted to memes.

I just found this great site called 43 Things. It’s another of those social sites like del.icio.us and Flickr. At 43 Things you list your long- and short-term goals and then track your own progress. You can also find other people who are working toward the same goals and enlist or offer help.

A while back I started compiling a list of 100 life goals. Last night I copied some things from that list onto 43 Things. Some of my goals are fanciful, but many are serious things I’d like to acheive.

Now to find a place to display “my 43 Things list”:http://www.43things.com/people/view/joeyday here on my blog…

    Now to find a place to display my 43 Things list here on my blog…

    More like, “how to use a PHP include to pull it into a nifty sidebar display.”

    Or, “where to put the sidebar display this time.”

    Oh, I know how I’ll pull it in. I’ll just use Magpie RSS the same way I display my del.icio.us links (oh, I guess I neglected to mention 43 Things has RSS support).

    Your second question is the harder one: where do I put it? I think the best place would be the sidebar on my “Info”:http://www.joeyday.com/info page. I’ll probably just knock my Annotation and Salivation lists down a bit (maybe reduce them to 7 instead of 8 items each) and throw it in at the top.
