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.

I’m fixing to go down to the local Wally World and get me some new tubes, just to start fresh, or a new friggin pump…

I would ride my bike, but it’s the damned tires! I’m itching to go cruisin before the weather gets shitty again.

So I’ve ridden my bicycle 5 times so far since I’ve gotten it fixed… Actually it’s been about a week and a half since I’ve been able to ride. :( prior commitments and such… there’s a park nearby, I’ve yet to go explore it. That’s on the to-do list.


Seeing as how I’m not sleeping at this Godawful hour I suppose I could put my energy into writing something.

I’ve taken my newly detailed and maintained bicycle out for a trip twice in the past two weeks. It’s something considering I haven’t ever really ridden it since I got it, like, I don’t know… 2 years ago. 2 years I just let it sit and rot in the shed. Isn’t that a crying shame?

So I figure- I’m not doing any good sitting in front of a computer screen… go bike. New neighborhood, less chance of getting mowed down by an SUV. It’s been raining, and I’m still a little rusty with the whole gear-shifting and whatnot so I’m taking it slow for now. My bike is a lot easier to get to now- I don’t have to reach into a spider-infested hotbox anymore, which helps. This is looking like a fun spring of bicycle riding afoot.
