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.

Maybe she's not ready

She doesn’t want to sit on the potty anymore at all. Maybe I should wait. Also I think she’s teething again, getting her last top molars in. So I guess I will wait until we’re done with that.

Maybe its too early...

She doesn’t like diapers, she will sit on the potty most of the time when I am also going to the bathroom, but not without me. But she doesn’t know when she has to go. I have not tried the “just put them in underwear” technique, because I am too terrified of what might happen!

She also wants the reward stickers, but if she’s not in the mood to sit on the potty, offering one as incentive doesn’t seem to encourage her.

not much progress

Maybe she’s not ready after all. I’m not sure. She likes her potty and likes sitting on it, but towards bedtime she starts refusing to try. Nothing happened in the potty today.

no real progress

No real progress today, except she seems to be getting better at pulling her pull-ups off and on. She definitely loses interest as the day wears on, but she also had a bad rash today and that may have made her less interested too.

Started in earnest today

She peed once in the potty today. We went every 30 minutes or so to try. I think she gets the idea. Towards evening (crazy time) she started being much less interested in sitting on the potty.
