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 joined NaNoWriMo and I’m working on writing 50,000 words by November 30th. I’m only at 3500 right now… but who knows, maybe I can do it! :) Stay tuned!

Not what I originally had in mind, but...

I was having lunch with a friend at The Table the other day, (a great vegetarian/vegan restaurant) when it dawned on me that all the food was soooo delicious! Heh. Not only that, but I am capable of making it all. But it is a bit of a pain. With more thinking, I realized that most cookbooks out there are full of recipes that serve 4, or 6, or if you’re really lucky, 2. Well, this won’t do. There’s only one of me, and I don’t feel like cooking a bunch of food and having leftovers for a week. And sometimes I just don’t feel like making the necessary conversions to adjust the recipe to serve one. So, I’m going to make my own cookbook, with healthy, delicious, mouth-watering vegetarian and vegan recipes that serve ONE! Why not? There’s nothing wrong with being just one :)
