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.

Reward: Week 9

Winter is on the way and it does get cold here in a Northern California. So, I ordered myself a pair of knee high Ugg Brome II boots in black leather with sheepskin lining. Even on sale, they’re pretty pricey. I tried on a pair at Saks Off Fifth, but had to pass since they were suede on the outside. As much as I love Ugg boots, I’ve never understood the suede outer. If it’s cold enough for me to wear them outside, I need something that can stand up to rain or slushy snow.

Hopefully they’ll fit, as Uggs can vary a size based on model. I wonder why they do this? Still, it’s better than Fluevog’s really weird sizing. You’d think the more expensive a pair, the more accurate they could be. Guess not.

I have an insanely huge shoe collection. I need to order some new glasses instead for next Week’s reward. I wonder if there’s a good place to do that online?
