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.

a bit by accident...

but while at the grocery store today I ran into my friend Carol. She was a LLL Leader along with me years ago and our kids went to preschool together, but I was surprised to see her because I thought that she, along with her family were in Mozambique working as missionaries. They are waiting for their house to sell and some other funding to come through, but hopefully they will soon be on their way for 2 years to Africa. What an adventure it will be for them.

Chatted with my friend, Liz today...

it was so nice to catch up on what is going on with her and her kids. I used to babysit her kids everyday when they were 4 and 5 and now they are 13 and 14 – yikes where did the time go??? It is amazing to me how kids just keep growing up, no matter what you do try and stop it.

It really had been too long since I’ve talked to or seen Liz and we used to see each other nearly every day. It was great just to hear her voice and laugh together. We amde plans to get together later this month. :)

Started this

Well, I actually managed to track down and email a friend from (yikes!) 20 years ago! Hi Rob! It’s good to catch up. :)
