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.

Break in my new combat boots (read all 5 entries…)
Not stretched enough...

Last Thursday I went to pick up my combat boots from the Cordonnier; however it turns out they weren’t stretched out enough.

I went at the end of the day; since that is when your feet are at their most swollen, which would make a perfect time to test them. They were still rather snug against the arch, right where the stitching is near the bottom of the tongue. And this was with barefeet; so it would certainly need more room if I was to be wearing socks, such as in wintertime!

So I had to leave them there for another few days, so that he could stretch them out some more. I was rather bummed; as it is a 40km round trip out there and back!


Dragon_Lady has gotten 2 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
