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.

Not Getting Anywhere On This One....

I just can’t seem to force myself to do this, especially when my house is so messy and I’m battling to keep that under control. I say I’m going to use cleaning as exercise and never get around to do that either. I’m a mess, hopefully it will get better.

Here we go again!

On Monday I start back full fledge on my diet, and I’ve thought of a new system I’m going to try. Every time I slip a little is when I will force myself to exercise one hour. Please give me some feedback on whether you think this is a good idea or not, and also whether you think it would actually work. Thanks guys~

Apartment First, Exercise Next On The List

I’m just going to be getting my apartment in order (using it as a form of exercise in itself), and then I will be exercising 30 minutes to 1 hour a day! Wish me luck!
