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.

I need MORE exercise! or longer walks. i usually walk a mile then take a break. walk another mile several hours later. I’d like to add a third mile but then night comes and all i want to do is kick back and relax. And if you’ve read my entries, i don’t even to the walks dialy. yet. i feel like i’ve done well on cutting back on the food but i do need to pick up the pace and exercise more.

i’ve been eating the junk food out of my cabinets. Not much in there so i’ve been slowly eating a little bit of it a day just to get rid of it (pop tarts). I have a couple fruit juices that i need to get rid of. I know i should just pour them out, but what a waste. I’ll have a glass a day just til they are gone.(maybe less).
