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.

Tribal Fusion Bellydance

Next week I’m going to do three 2-hour tribal fusion workshops at Underbelly. I can’t wait!!!

Well I've started ...

Actually I’ve had two lessons and it’s the BEST fun, I’m enjoying belly dancing so much. The teacher is great and everyone seems to have such a good time in the class … and I think I’m improving, I’ve mastered the Egyptian Walk so that’s something.

Trying again

I’ve enrolled in belly dancing classes … this will be my second bout. I’ve found a new place to go after experiencing a tyrannical teacher at the last place. Well, they at least sound friendly on the phone, that’s a start. And their brochure says you can wear jangly things … the last place I went, she constantly reminded us that we could not dress like belly dancers unless we’d earned the right, which meant years of dancing apparently. Come to think of it, maybe that was her technique for getting people to fork out for endless classes with her …

Well so far ...

I’ve learnt some Egyptian belly dancing. Plus I’ve started to try to teach myself Hula.

This year I’m going to learn Salsa and maybe Bollywood – I’ve found classes for these.

Plus I want to do Swing dancing, I think I can just rock up to Swing Patrol anytime for that.
