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.

Skoshi-Bit trying to stay motivated

post random questions daily and see if anyone plays with me and answers them :) (read all 25 entries…)
How are you spending Independence Day? (July 4 to non-Americans)

Meetup offers many activities, but somehow none seemed like a good fit for me. I talked my BFF into having a BBQ, and after we’ll pack up his family and cruise around town looking for fireworks.



Comments:

nicolasc will be out of the picture a lot. Please don't take lack of response or reciprocation personally!

I haven't really made plans, but

there is tentative talk about the family hanging out all together. Maybe do a bit of barbecuin’. :-)

Collectorofcats No matter where I go in the future I'll remember 43 things.

No specific plans

I see possibly taking the granddaughter to the pool. We are probably going to eat light and cool because of the heat. We might buy some more kid friendly fireworks to be lit by an adult, of course. We already did some on the weekend.
Our city is still having it’s annual fireworks display tonight while some neighboring towns have cancelled because of the heat and excessive dry conditions.

4th of July Parade - 50th Anniversary

Our little town does a parade every year, but we haven’t gone in a while. I think I want to go down to this one with my camera and see what I see.

Last night The Condor Squadron (vintage WWII fighter planes) flew over our house, checking out the route they’ll fly over the parade tomorrow. Thrilling
