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.

Finish reading the Millennium Trilogy by Stieg Larrson. (read all 4 entries…)
Book 1: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

For the past few years, this title seemed to have kept popping up on bookshelves everwhere I went. It seemed to following me, constantly trying to capture my interest. Then it hit home: Four days ago, it revealed itself among the other books at my school library. Having no other choices that picqued my interest, I decided to give it a try.

By the time Lisbeth Salander had her confrontation with her new guardian, I was hooked. Now I am at the point where they have solved the mystery; case is closed. Yet there are still a total of 61 pages left. Honestly, I am half-tempted to simply close the book and move onto the next one, ignoring whatever is left. But that goes against the grain and would feel like defeat (part of my joy in reading is finishing the book, conquering it). Hopefully, Mr. Larrson has something more interesting in store within the next few pages.
