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.

We rode the bike to the park yesterday for a festival

It was really nice on the way there. It was crazy hot on the way home and I just didn’t plan well enough, I kind of rushed getting out the house to “beat the heat” but the heat wasn’t going anywhere, I really needed to have eaten something for lunch, because despite having drank quite a bit of water I still got really dehydrated and overheated.
It was just plain stupid and I know better. I’m proud that we got out and “just did it” but I’m not so proud that it got really yucky at the end, I could have planned better or made different decisions about how to get home.

Live and learn…

I'm parking the car from Wed. night until Mon. morning...

It’s going to be walk, ride the bike or take the bus for those 4 days. I need to kick the car habit!!

rode my bike to the library

it’s a fairly short ride, but it’s a start. Felt great…let’s see how the ride home is, i know it’s uphill!

BarbaryBlue has gotten 23 cheers on this goal.
