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 really need to do this. But first, I need to find the damn thing. It’s in a box in the abyss of moving boxes…

Teaching journal

Last june I started teaching my first kids summer craft camps. It was a blast and every day had a new adventure and lesson. I decided to start a teaching journal and write in it every day I taught to record my observations about teaching, why education(especially art education) is important, discipline lessons, teaching methods and more. I did this diligantly until about Thanksgiving. Then I stopped. I don’t know why really. Guess I got lazy. The lessons haven’t stopped so the learning doesn’t stop either.

After the summer I restarted teaching my weekly(which later turned into biweekly) craft classes for 3-5 y/o so I didn’t have to write as often as during the summer. It was a great idea and I still think it’s something important. Especially when it comes to promoting myself as an educator. This journal has the raw seeds of my personal views on education. So much potential! Arg!
