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’m finding it very difficult to read straight through as I had planned. I found a guide online that I think I’m going to try. It separates types of readings based on the day of the week. I will end up covering some of the material I have already been through, but I don’t suppose that really matters too much.

Genesis 18, 19, 20

These readings are very slow-going for me. I’m reading in two languages, and therefore, it takes me double time for each chapter.

Genesis 18: Destruction of Soddom and Gomorrah discussed.
Genesis 19: Lot taken from Soddom… Cities destroyed. Lot’s wife turns into pillar of salt. Lot’s daughters lay with him.
Genesis 20: Abraham and Sarah in Gerar (King Abimelech).

Genesis 15, 16, 17

I haven’t had my Bible for a few days, as I left it at my mother’s house. However, I did get it back recently, and have resumed with my readings.

These few chapters are about Abram being renamed Abraham and his covenant with God regarding circumcision, Hagar bearing Ishmael, etc.

Still in Genesis

It’s a little slow-going for me, as I’m reading it in two languages, but I’ve made a little progress… I’m up to Genesis 16. It’s a little hard to make time when I’m trying to finish up this semester, and well, I guess wasting time online doesn’t help much either.

Day 2: November 2, 2009

Genesis 5-7

Genesis 6:4
“There were giants in the earth in those days and also after that…”

Tonight I didn’t do much reading… I actually haven’t read much at all the last few days. I did get through a couple of short chapters in Genesis.

Day 1

I found a guide to reading the Bible in a year at the back of my Bible. I’m starting with Genesis 1-26 in the first week. Today, I read the first four chapters, but to complicate matters, I’m reading it in both English and Spanish. My Bible has side-by-side translations in the King James Version. The formal Spanish is rather difficult, but I’m getting through it.
