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.

Dani_Bird is at a crossroads

Regain my footing (read all 3 entries…)
Cross the fingers gang!

Tomorrow may very well be my last day of physical therapy. At least for a while! Yay!!!! I Want to celebrate, but no one else really seems to want to. When I brought it up to my friends they just kind of looked at me like I was nuts. I guess its really only exciting for me…but still. I may try to do something. But I’m getting ahead of myself here, Karen (My therapist) may decided that I need more time. I’m really anxious about tomorrow, I really just want things to get back to normal, at least a bit. I probably wont sleep tonight, Its already 1:24 am, and I haven’t even yawned yet. I am totally wide awake, which I guess it good, I’ll write some letters, try to clean up my room without making too much noise, it’ll be good. Right?

p.s. There is picture of my brokeness for you. One side anyway. the other picture is too close up to see anything. The scabby part is where the bone broke off and came out.


Dani_Bird has gotten 3 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
