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.

Rock Spring Break (read all 4 entries…)
Sooooo excited

I am ridiculously excited about Spring Break. And I’m not even going anywhere. I just really, really, really, really need a break from work right now. And i know from past experience how fast Spring Break goes. So I want to get the most out of this next week. I already have chunks of it filling up. But the rest I’m going to plan out carefully.

Already on the agenda…

Sunday 8 am – 1 pm : Singing/playing at church
Monday 10 am : Medical appt.
Monday afternoon/evening : Taking Kristinne out for her birthday
Tuesday evening : school board meeting
Weds afternoon : band rehearsal for youth retreat
Friday – Sunday : Youth Retreat, I’m a counselor, judge for art/music contest and a guest vocalist/violinist for the music

For the rest of those hours, I will be making a master plan and posting it day by day.
