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.

Party tomorrow!

There’s nothing like a visit from everyone you are related to in the world to get you in gear. The house and yard are as nice as I’ve ever seen them, and we’re committed to keeping them in much better shape from now on.

Getting ready for the party

In preparation for the baby’s first birthday party, we’re basically cleaning the whole house. Both desks are done, the bathroom except for the floor is done, the mirrors and windows are done, the first floor carpet is done. Really all that’s left is the bathroom floor, the kitchen, and the carpet on the stairs and second floor. Yay!

Washing Machine

Today we cleaned the washing machine. Wow, it was so gross! But now it’s beautiful!

One Room at a Time

I’ve got to get this place seriously cleaned up. Scrubbing, scraping, whatever.

I’ll start small, with the downstairs bathroom.
