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.

This weekend, I left it all and went with my friends to their home in the small city of Zacatlán, two hours north of Cholula. It is located on the edge of a beautiful gorge in the Sierra Madre Oriental.

This is a city with the charms of a small town with plenty of photo opportunities. I couldn’t take them all as I was with company, but I still got a few good shots. Not only was it a decent photo excursion, but it was a delightful getaway with very good friends :)

After-party excursion
With a few family members and friends who stayed overnight after my b-day party, we went on a small excursion to some of the places of interest in and around Cholula. We visited:
  • the Capilla Real and San Gabriel’s Convent next to the main square of Cholula
  • the Church of San Francisco Acatepec
  • the Church of Tonantzintla
  • the town of Chipilo for a break for some ice cream and also to load ourselves with cheeses, ham, pasta, and other locally-produced goodies
  • and finally, Container City —a small outdoor mall made completely with discarded train/boat containers— which was quite a change after a series of churches.

All this made for quite a photographic spree.
