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.

Attend a Swing Exchange out of state
Camp Jitterbug

I haven’t been on the site in a while apparently and just realized that I did complete this goal a few months ago. While living in Portland, I attended Camp Jitterbug in Seattle, WA over memorial day weekend.

It was amazing! I am planning on making a point to for sure attend it again this year. I personally love dancing with dancers from other places, and when you attend dance events everyone is so much more friendly and the chemistry of everything and how it works together is so full of energy, excitement, learning, and of course more dancing than you can get anywhere else.

One of my favorite things is that the learning curve is incredibly steep! You can actually start from not knowing a thing about the particular dance to being able to show up many of your friends at home who have been dancing for months.

I have also attended a Blues Recess Event, which happened to be my first time in the Blues world and have many more plans to attend events this year!

Many of the friends I made, I am so grateful for and I must admit that dancers overall are the most amazing people! :D
