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.

Pretty much finished

I went ahead and listed this as complete. There are a couple things left at the condo that I need to pick up but the big thing is that I’ve gotten everything out of my old house that I shared with my ex. I went out for dinner with my roommate and went “home.” Home is a different place now but it does feel like home. The boxes are unpacked and the bed has been made. It’s hard not looking back to what was but I know that the future holds great things. I don’t know what comes next but I’m excited to find out.

Just a bit more to move

3 pieces of furniture at the ex’s place and then I’ve got four or five tupperware tubs worth of stuff at the condo. The furniture may have to wait until after the 13th which I’m okay with because I just don’t see myself having the time to get back over there. The stuff out of the condo should be done within the next couple of days.
