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.

New church!

Next Sunday we’re going to meet with the vicar at the new church we’ve picked out. We’ve pretty much decided against having it at the chapel in Oxford, so I’m really looking forward to it. I really hope that it all goes well, and that the vicar is nice. I am also kind of excited at the possibility of having a woman do the service… I think it’ll blow some of my Catholic family members’ minds. haha.
Once we decide on the service venue we can concentrate on the invitations. I think it’ll be best to get our RSVP’s before we start planning the reception since so many of the guests will be from abroad and we have plenty of time.
In the mean time, I’m hoping to go to Miami or Colombia to get my dress sorted. I pretty much know what I want (Ivory, A-line, off the shoulder) but haven’t found it at any shops so am still considering going the custom made route. Apparently, I can get it made pretty cheap in Colombia… for about 1,000,000 Pesos. Which with the exchange rate is about £350. Not bad!


MicroWhisper has gotten 2 cheers on this entry.
