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.

No, No!!

I didn’t do this! I wanted to give up on it, but accidentally clicked I Did It, and now I can’t figure out how to undo it. :-(

So, no. This was a complete failure. I am a nightowl. Though I would like to train myself to be a morning person.

Haven't really been doing this.

Must try harder.

Didn't happen tonight.

Had an out of town friend here all day yesterday (didn’t realize she was staying all day so it was a happy surprise), then ZH had a friend sleep over last night so they were both here this morning. Weekend work got pushed back to the end of the day today (domestic and professional). So after my nightly shower (yes, I shower before bed and in the morning) probably midnight by the time I am asleep… :-(

‘night, all!

Gonna be more like 10:30 tonight.

I had forgotten I made oatcake dough and left it to rest on the counter, and only saw it when I got up to do pre-bedtime kitchen tidying. So I started to bake them, and got too clever for my own good, making it a longer process than it needed to be. :-/

I had some of the dough left, and realized – what the heck, I am not going to stay up to make the second batch. I stuck it in the fridge for tomorrow instead. AND on a side note, I’m letting the oatcakes cool off IN the oven, and I’m going to see if that helps with their crispness. We’ll see when I wake up if they are crispy, or burned to a crisp…

Off to my bedtime shower and bed. Goodnight!
