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.

This was much more readable than I thought it would be! I really got into it. I always wanted to read Dracula at Halloween-time and so this year, I just did it (though, of course, it took me all November to actually finish it). It was scary and funny and fast-paced. In fact, I started The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman somewhere in there and kept thinking about Dracula so I just took Dovekeepers back to the library and finished Dracula. (I used to really like Alice Hoffman and this book got good reviews but it was super annoying and not just because Dracula was calling me…just annoying on its own.)
So, highly recommend Dracula!


Waterfall Nymph I just came to say Goodbye, love.

I liked it a lot more than I thought I would too. Not that I thought it would be too scary, but I feared it would be too florid.

it was

But in a sweet, quaint way, don’t you think?

Waterfall Nymph I just came to say Goodbye, love.
