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.

Thanksgiving was at our house this year. The kids came. Our grandson was here. My mom came. It was a lovely time. I was more at ease than usual. All that mattered was we were together.

Very fun night

Tonight I had the family over for our first dinner together in ages. I tried to keep the menu simple, so I wouldn’t get too tired cooking, but I still got pretty worn out.
Son and his wife came quite early, but since I had the dinner mostly done, I just said to heck with cleaning and held the baby for quite a while.
Mom came too, so it was great for her to see the baby and for his Auntie to get to hold him too!

Tamhawk has gotten 24 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
