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.

I’m almost done with the book of Genesis. Not that it takes all that long to read, but I’ve been taking it a couple of sections at a time each day, going along with the way my study Bible is set to be read. So far, so good. For a few different days, I’ve already felt like God was specifically speaking to me through the scripture, about my own situations. I’m excited to continue.

I'm going to do it this time!

I have always wanted to read the entire Bible.. and to know it so well that I can better back up the things I believe in with the scripture. I’m in the process of reading the entire Bible. I bought the Max Lucado Devotional Bible so I can read a little every day and be more pushed into really getting into it. I’ve always loved Max Lucado’s stuff, so having comments from him in the margins to read along with the scriptures I read should encourage me to continue reading it… until I’m done. This should also help me to understand things better. I’m excited about my new endeavor and hope I’ll actually accomplish this goal I’ve always wanted to – this time.
