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.

Go an ENTIRE month without getting a parking ticket (read all 9 entries…)
this is kinda whiney too.. but...it involves a MONSTER Truck!

AS we speak..this very moment i am parked illegally..right outside my front window… im watching carefully..and have been for the past several hours!! how sad is this???
it is snowing to beat the band.. and my lil ole european sports car is still trapped behind a wall of snow about 4 feet high..
i had to resort to something i NEVER do..actual..never until now.. first time for everything..i keep a Monster Truck.. out in the country..its a long story but i need it out there…(there is NO trash service and i cant count on cowboys to take my trash to the county dump ALLL the time)
soo..today..i had to drive the MONSTER truck to the city..
im reasonably sure it will fit on the first level of the garage… but i am also just as sure..that i personally ..cant get it in there..!! then just to make things interesting..
Today is Chinese New Year (im in chinatown remember!!) AND Disney on Ice is at the Arena across the street with shows EVERY two hours… soooo the garage and the streets are even more populated than they would be normally… and icy..did i mention its snowing again!!!
add it altogether and its a big ole parking cluster fuck goat rodeo!!!
wish Me luck.. when the last of Disney Crowd leaves i hope to be able to navigate the MONSTER TRUCK…into the garage..or maybe just a legal spot!
xoxo
