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.

have a happy and relaxed Christmas this year (read all 13 entries…)

I haven’t did the Christmas meal before and that’s not what I’m mean when I titled this “Cooking.” I want to do things like make cookies and hot chocolate this year. I found out this year that I can make awesome homemade cookies. Maybe I could save some time and money this year by just making my co-workers cookies instead of buying individual gifts. ...I don’t have a lot of co-workers. We’re all pretty close and usually buy each other gifts…

I will also like to contribute to Christmas dinner this year. I want to make green bean casserole and maybe something else. My husbands mom usually does all of the cooking, but I want to help too.



Making Gifts

I do think making gifts are the best gifts one can give, ones made from the heart as much as possible.

After all, one can “buy” something most anytime of year.

The ones made for us, are the ones I think that are the most memorable. :)

I think making homemade cookies for your coworkers is an awesome idea, especially if you can find out what each individual’s favorites are since you have a small amount of co-workers. They should love it! :)

Enjoy this Christmas and enjoy GIVING. :)
