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.

Nose in a book, toes in the weekend

I’m doing a Friday jig, happy that the weekend is here, although I’m still waiting for it to dry up. I finished the current project yesterday and have requested another, but until then I want to indulge in a bit of down time (Sun salutations? Curling up with a new book? Watching a movie?) before pouncing on my list.

We’re having some issues at school again after a couple of golden months, so we need to deal with that, as well as further plans for whittling down the storage room. I’m slowly but surely catching up with entries, and feeling a bit more on top of things, but it would still be nice to have a magical stopwatch for the day to day dregs. Some days it’s hard to see those dirty dishes as baby Buddhas, but I’ll try.

Happy weekends to all, there’s supposed to be a gorgeous moon if the clouds pull up their skirts long enough to see it.
