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.

Linked In

Not sure whether to put this under “networking” or “researching jobs”. Through the Yoga Alliance group on Linked In, I came across a post by a woman who has some similar ideas to me and who is teaching through Parks & Rec in north San Diego county. I wrote her a private message to ask her how she got involved in teaching in this environment. She said she had originally proposed classes to them in order to get started. I’m going to see if there is a Parks & Rec facility (or several) where it would be suitable for me to do this.

She also teaches at a Martial Arts studio, which she pitched to the owner by researching benefits of yoga for martial arts. This is a kind of cool idea as well. I’ve heard of people pitching classes to corporations and have talked to some yoga teachers about how they did this as well. Once I get the business license/ tax sorted, I’m interested in pursuing this angle more – pitching my own classes to places that do not already have programs.
