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.

Wellll....

This was supposed to be writing an entry a day for last month, but I obviously didn’t manage to accomplish that. So I’m going to try to average one a day for this month. And I guess if needs be, I’ll keep renaming it until I manage to get one of the months accomplished. I know I’ve done it before, but I’ve never bothered to have it as a goal in and of itself. So, let’s see if I do any better here in July. I’m only four days behind so far…



Soooo...

I’m not doing very well on this goal. For a while, including when I added this goal to my list, I was writing quite a bit on here, but I seem to have gone through a little bit of a dry spell these past couple of weeks. But I guess I don’t really have a whole lot to do this weekend, so I’ll try to get myself caught up on this…



Well...

Nine days down, only about three weeks to go. I haven’t made a whole lot of progress on any of my other goals over the past day. I need to buckle down and get some stuff done over the weekend. The girlfriend has a friend coming over to stay the weekend after next, so I’ll definitely have to work on getting the upstairs rooms cleaned up so he has someplace to stay.

And, of course, all the other goals would be nice to get accomplished, too…



So I decided...

for some strange reason, that I felt like trying to write one entry per day here on 43Things during the month of June. I’m not entirely sure why I care about writing 30 entries in a month, but it’s a goal for the month. Let’s see how I do. Oh, and this would be day one of thirty…
