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.

Gettin' my bike on.

I’m doing great.

We just moved and we aren’t going to get a car. So it’s all walking, bussing, or biking. I’ve been biking to and from school.

The easiest way to do this is by forcing it. That’s how it is with me and exercise in general.


Spring is slowly making its presence known.

I will reevaluate this in April and see how I’m doing.

This week was bad: Sunday – rode bike to the grocery store and drug store
Monday – rainy so didn’t bike
Today – visiting school (30 min drive) so no biking to work and I have to clean my apartment and have plans tonight that involve driving.

bummer…but hopefully I’ll be back on track by next month. :)

i hate driving and love biking.

In August, when I bought a bike here in Japan I was terrified. I hadn’t ridden a bike since I was 11 or 12 years old. It was shakey at first…but now I love it.

Unfortunitly, now that it’s cold, I don’t bike EVERYDAY but still manage to most days.

I’m going to wait until March, when it warms up and reevaluate if I’m actually riding everyday and then check this off. :)

This is something I hope I can continue when I return home to the states in August.
