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.

Resolve to have a great 2011 Spring by doing at least one new and fulfilling thing in April, May and June (read all 3 entries…)
June

Well, here it is July already. I remember in June I kept asking myself what was the most remarkable thing I’d done? And I couldn’t quite seem to put my finger on it. I had my 53rd birthday in June, and I suppose that’s pretty amazing. It means I’ve been alive more than half a century, plus three. And oddly enough, my Mom gave me a beautiful colorful lotus cake with five margarita candles and the number three on it. Ha ha!! So, here’s to my next year around the sun!
