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 a place for my keys :D They are either there, or in the ingnition or my hand, that is all.

I SO don't!

Please excuse me for a minute, but…FARRRK!
So, here’s what happened. My daughter and I share a birthday – tomorrow. After tossing up a lot of different plans for the day, we settled on going to a wildlife park during the day and camping overnight near the beach. I’ve been planning for days, packing, preparing food, blah blah blah. I came home this afternoon from shopping and put the little kids straight into bed, went about my business. Boys woke up, went to do the last minute run to the buthcer…WHERE ARE MY KEYS?? How do a bunch of keys just evapourate?? Really. It’s been 10 hours since I last had them. I have not gone anywhere since then – where could they be?. Long story short(ish) – we have postponed :(
Truth be known, it’s raining and cold (for here). I wasn’t really looking forward to sleeping in a tent in the pouring rain, or walking around a wildlife park, hoping some poor fool animal would venture out into the weather, just so us poor fool humans could gawp at it. Still, weather being what it is can always change and I’m confounded by the disappearance of the keys. It’s doing my head in.

New house on the 3rd

and I will be in charge! SO this is going to be the rule – NO EXCEPTIONS.

imgladimme has gotten 23 cheers on this goal.
