Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

borderchick406 life is a series of moments strung together by our decisions

get married (read all 2 entries…)
Getting there slowly but surely!

Wedding planning has been a little bit insane recently, especially because my work has been taking over much more of my life than originally anticipated. However, I have the best Maid of Honor and my mom has been an incredible help in the planning process. We set a date and a reception site, so the biggies are all taken care of! We’re getting married on 9/1/2012, the Saturday of this coming Labor Day weekend! The reception is going to be at this amazing old hotel in the city that’s being completely restored. It’s a little frightening booking a construction site, but I love the thought of the place and I’m excited to see the progress on the building! There are four different banquet rooms in the hotel, two of which are run by an awesome local restaurant/brewery who will be doing all the food and drinks for our wedding. Fiance and I love the history of the building and are really excited to be able to have our reception there!

Things are in fact coming along great! With the way my work goes, I get insanely, over-the-top, all-consuming busy at the beginning of the year so I wasn’t able to do much planning. But since April has rolled around I’ve started knocking off quite a few of the details and am getting extremely excited!


I want to:
