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.

I have been practicing my cursive. You know the cursive you learn in school. Not what it morphs into when you get older. It is funny..but going back and looking at the way the letters are formed, I am so totally off. It is hard to retrain myself.

I don’t have the shoulder thing down yet though. It is hard to write with your whole arm.

I am lusting after a fountain pen. The one I want is 40 dollars!!! I can’t see spending that much on a pen though. I love writing with them though.


thought I would go ahead and look up some of the things on my list and I found a really neat article on how to improve your handwriting.

wow…it is surprising how something everyone takes for granted is so hard to change.

The article is

I think finding a pen I love is a good thing. I love fountain pens. when I was in highschool they actually had really neat disposible fountain pens. I have not seen them in forever and I wonder if they even make them anymore.

I would love to have a few of those. Ya know?
