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.

How to avoid high fructose corn syrup


luinel to train or not to train, that is the question.

i did this for over four months

Since i started training for a triathlon i have been a little less strict about my diet: i’ve been letting myself have a Coke 1-2 times a week (Coca-Cola has always been my biggest weakness) or maybe a bowl of rice crispies / rice crispy treat. For the most part, however, i still only buy foods that do not have HFCS in them. i can’t eat the frosted fruit pies anymore (i threw it out after 2-3 bites, it was disgusting), eat candy extremely rarely, and am not even interested in food with dubious ingredients (such as doughnuts). i ate a piece of store bought cake yesterday at a party and the icing was soooo sweet: i didn’t even want to look at the label.

luinel has gotten 1 cheer on this entry.
