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.

I have done a good job getting to the beach once a week… I should say AT LEAST because sometimes I go weeks going to the beach each day. I have not been for a couple weeks partly because of the cool weather and partly b/c I have been out of town. Technically I ate at the beach on Sunday but I don’t really count that. The week before we went to the pier and got drinks at the beach. It was wonderful to see all the people out blading and walking and just taking in the rays! This weekend is going to be nice so you know where I’ll be!

More than once...

This entry is about done. I hit the beach at least 2 or 3 times a week. And now with volleyball season upon me, it will be even more. However, I am going to keep this on here for those months when the weather starts deteriorating a bit or where I somehow get out of the habit!

Very nice

Sunday was the first free free day I’ve had since New Years. We had people over virtually every weekend and then moving stuff. My wife was studying so I hit the beach- what a PERFECT day. It was just warm enough to have a T-shirt on and I spent the afternoon taking in the rays talking to friends.

The west coast has the sunshine…

…and the girls all get so tanned. Does there have to be any other motivation to hit the beach??? Well, where I live, we go through periods of fog (marine layer) so it’s hard to get out to the beach because it is cool and not very nice. But living to close to it, I have no excuse not to go at least once a week. And if it’s too cold to lay out there is always volleyball and rollerblading!
