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.

My Beloved Biscuit Eater

This morning my sister called.

My dogs are all in pittsburgh with her while she’s doing a play.
Sisko Nabisco is my baby even though he’s the oldest of the three.

He loves me more than any other animal I’ve owned.

He’s got sooo many medical problems. The fuck heads who had him before me neglected him.
I haven’t been able to afford the amount of surgery he needs (roughly $5500) Feel very guilty, but it has been in my plans. So much more than that has already been spent in the past 2 or 3 yrs.

And no, I don’t use credit cards.

My sister told me that this morning he was shitting and pissing and coughing up blood and that he was really lethargic.

She took him to the vet. He’s still there. My poor little, precious pooper dooper. He must be so scared. And he must feel awful.

They are going to run tests on him. But what if they tell me I have to put him to sleep?

I really can’t bear this.

(They all chose their spots in this photo. He made sure that he got the lap spot.)
