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.

tikini wikini a fond farewell to 43Things

traveling some to distant places

most everywhere is distant from here.

This is most likely the third third of my life, although we cannot really know those things. The dreams I had have both come to fulfillment, and not. Publishing a novel is still out there somewhere, perhaps.

But I am finding my passions are more placid, ideas more introspective. Getting things done is not the hot ticket for me, except where necessary.

My main goal for the time ahead is to stretch it out and use it to explore and enjoy.

what about you?

Beautiful answer =)

I’m looking forward to becoming more beautiful on the inside.

I’m also looking forward to traveling alone a bit this year.

And I’m looking forward to getting my teeth fixed.

I am looking forward to...

settling into a permanent job and making that graduate degree worth it

becoming a wife, mother, aunt, sister-in-law, daughter-in-law

(not terribly hopeful that any of these things will be happening in 2011, but oh well).

bermudamohawk will sporadically be on PopClogs as "bermuda"

5pm

as I will be off of work for 10 days. It can’t come soon enough!
