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.

Hung out with my best friend last night

We ate Vietnamese food at Van Loc’s and then went back to her house, drank margaritas and hung out and talked. She’s really the only person I can have these long, winding conversations with about what I want to do, where I want to be, etc. Aside from our husbands, we are the only other people who understand, truly understand where the other one is coming from. Ah, I love good friends and awesome conversations! The margaritas were good, too. :o)

I talked to my good friend

that lives in Brandon, MB. I wish I could afford to go up and visit her! We met last year and went to the Minnesota State Fair together and saw Great Big Sea play there. sigh Good times, those. Gotta get up there to see her, or her down here to see me!

I need to strive to be...

a better friend to my existing friends, and be there when I say I’m going to. That is part of my goal. The other half is actually just as difficult for me. For some reason I don’t make friends that easily. Those people that truly are my friends, are very sacred to me. Being an only child, they are like an extension of my family.

Amber has gotten 6 cheers on this goal.
