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.

My favorite site to use is! I use it so much!

I have lots of food blogs bookmarked too. I also sort of use but my default is Everything just looks so good and amazing. I salivate just browsing :p.

Nowadays I’ve been really tired so I’m starting to do this “fake” cooking, where I just buy a bunch of frozen stuff from Costco and markets and throw them together to make some sort of halfway decent meal.

For example, this upcoming week is a really hard week at work and I bought a bunch of ready-made soups from Costco to divide up into portions to take for lunch. And then I’ll add some other stuff I find around the house or make…and overall, this saves me a lot more money than buying a lunch, which really adds up the money!
