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'm a dancing fiend!

Okay, so now that I’ve discovered how great dancing is, I’m unstoppable! I went out Friday night for a holiday dinner with my co-workers and then afterwards headed to a bar with a dance floor. It was exactly what I needed—though next time I will exchange my turtleneck sweater for something a little more breathable!

The Company Holiday Party

The dreaded company holiday party was last Friday. I really didn’t want to go. All the girls were talking about what dresses they were wearing and the accessories to go with them. Normally I am soooo into this-dressing up, that is. Normally I would have spent the previous weekend hunting down the perfect dress and probably would have spent way too much. Not this year. It is the COMPANY holiday party, after all. Why waste so much energy over it? Why even go? Well, I did go after all and had a great time-mostly dancing. I LOVE to dance. I don’t do it nearly enough. Where in NYC can I dance (and not have to look like a hooch…)? Happy Happy Happy.

YogaGirl has gotten 6 cheers on this goal.
