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.

In progress - really!

I’m making a pie RIGHT NOW. It’s an Angel Pie with a meringue shell and lemon filling. I hope it turns out, but I think I mixed the lemon filling a little weird . . . but hopefully it’ll still taste good. Wish me luck!

Here we go . . .

Okay, I finally got my garbage disposal fixed, so I have a plan in case something goes horribly wrong. . . Time to get crackin’!

Now that I've made it a challenge . . .

I’m actually going to do this. I just printed two recipes off of, and I’m going to make at least one of them. Both look pretty easy, but it’s still a pie, right?! I hope they’ll be good. Maybe I should get my garbage disposal fixed, just in case . . .

What kind?

I haven’t decided what kind to make yet, but I want to do it soon! Anybody have any suggestions? (Or just favorites?)

Define Pie

I don’t suppose it counts if I pour chocolate pudding into a pre-made graham cracker crust?

Actually, I love fruit pies, so that’s what I really want to make. But seriously – chocolate and graham crackers? Yum.
