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.

TSE Spring is almost here...yea!

Visit Hong Kong (read all 14 entries…)
We're sort of on-track with this goal...

...this really hinges on our budget. I can take vacation days away from work, but we may not have saved enough to do this.

To be fair, we have been saving steadily over the year in anticipation of this trip. However, we also had unexpected added expenses after the birth of our daughter.

Nonetheless, this goal reminds a high priority and I know we can make it.


Holly three things done in the last month -- yay me!

Yes, yes, yes

There’s a great hotel we stayed in called the JJ Hotel. It was clean and very affordable. Here’s a link

Before we found this hotel, we had found that accomodation in Hong Kong was pretty expensive and even at nicer hotels a bit different from a North American Hotel. I’ve also heard great things about the YMCA. Wherever you end up, you should be close to a metro line.

If you are interested here is a link to some of my blog posts on our 2010 trip.


I want to:
