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.

Clutter Intervention

Yes, I am not as much of a clutter bug as those on Hoarders, but I sure hold on to a lot. My loving sisters came over to visit last weekend and took away 2 bags of clothes for various reasons: they looked better in it; the clothes better in the decade they should’ve been worn; they convinced me that if I haven’t worn it since I bought it, I probably never will. Whatever the reason, I was sad for 10 seconds and quickly forgot about it.

The one item I regret letting go of is a t-shirt that I could’ve used for and 80’s themed 10k. LOL!

I noticed that I hold on to a lot of clothes due to my weight fluctuations. I think this is another reason why being one healthy size is good for my life.

I will try to get rid of 43 things by the end of the weekend and list it as a separate “Thing.”
