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.

good progress

This is something that I’ve been doing from time to time when I want a break from what I’m reading. Anton Chekhov wrote 201 short stories, which I’ve been reading in chronological order that he wrote them in. Tonight I read a few more with the last one being 85. Of course this is not counting the few that I read before and really loved that I will be reading. A lot of them come off to me as hit or miss but then again I do struggle with some of them when it comes to Russian culture in his era. Regardless there is enough really good timeless ones that are really good that make reading through the duds worthwhile to find them.

Celtic Christian has gotten 28 cheers on this goal.
