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.

Downloaded some more on Flickr....

and got Picasa. Now, I need to make sure the real photos are better organized…..

This is getting pretty close...

I’ve set up a recurring task to organize a little each Sunday via Picasa, and then upload them to Flickr. I have 847 photos now on Flickr. I think this will be close to being done over Christmas Break. I have the analog camera photos in boxes but not really well organized. They’re just placed on in back of another in chronological order so when I scrapbook, I take each box and I know where I left off.

I just now found....

Picasa. I bet this could help me organize all my photos, huh!!!

Anyone have any neat tips on how to use this to the max?

Starting scrapbooking again...

We’re getting together a couple Friday nights a month to do scrapbooking again at work….

Need to upload more onto Flickr.

Need to get back on this one...

by scrapbooking more…and by adding more to Flickr.

My DD looked at what I had on Flickr, too – and she thinks that’s neat.

Maybe a good way to reconnect with her.

More progress made....

I uploaded some more to flickr last night.

On the list today....

to upload more into Flickr – remind my friends and family to sign up so they can see pix of the kids.

Getting there....

Well, digitally, I have them all in thematic folders. I have lots recently added to Flickr, but the real photos – man, I need to devote some time to Creative Memories.

This one will be good.

Ok – Creative Memories, dumping some of those awesome diggies of the kids into Walmart….need LOTS of next actions on this one, peeps!
