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.

sabryn is gonna miss this site so damn much

eat a more balanced diet (read all 24 entries…)
Freezer full of food

Today I made vegetable soup, vegetable stew, and four mini pot pies. I also made up a batch of pizza dough; R and I made a pizza with half of it, and I froze the other half. This week, I plan to make up more pizza dough (I’m thinking homemade pizza for Mom’s birthday celebration; also, I want to make up a batch of calzones for the freezer), plus some rolls and biscuits for freezing (they’ll go nicely with the soup and stew). Everything is made completely from scratch—fresh veggies and all. Time consuming, but judging by the pot pie I made last night, very worth it.

For lunch this week, I mixed up some cottage cheese sandwich filling – cottage, carrots, celery, chives, horseradish sauce, and yogurt. I’ll eat it on toast instead of my usual peanut butter sandwich. So I’ll get my protein, plus dairy and veggies.

My fridge is astonished, but pleased.
