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.

list three things that made me happy today, every day in April 2012 (read all 27 entries…)
okay here goes again

it’s been a tough week, what with asthma, then bronchitis, then sore throat, then ear infection that does not want to go away. plus this means that i won’t be able to go to boston to visit my friend, a trip i’ve been looking fwd to for months. plus having to use vacation days for my sick time, as don’t have enough sick days.

so this happy/grateful goal is imperative to do, asap, as i’m losing perspective.

1. glad that i don’t have to be alone in my sickness – am at my parents’ home
2. getting yummy homecooked food from my mom
3. got to go to the doctor yesterday to get to bottom of this
