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.

The first day of summer vacation

Today is the first day of summer vacation, and M’s last day of work for a week. The garage is now smelling extra fresh (aired out and drops of lavender sprinkled) which is a huge relief, and my main goals for today are starting a new project, registering to 90 books, and helping Isak start a journal of his own.

It’s a muggy, gray day. I have some leftovers from yesterday to deal with, one of which is trying to make a hair appointment so I can feel refreshingly redder in the sun, if it ever returns. I think it’s a good day for multitasking. It’s also a day for rejoicing at the dawn of another weekend. A really Loooooong weekend.
