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.

So, here in California currently. I can’t wait to move to our permanent home! I’ll be here for almost 4 months and then moving to Colorado Springs, Colorado. :D

Two cities in a few months!

We finally get to move! My husband got orders for Colorado, so we’ll be there in February. First, we have to be in California for a few months. This is my first time really moving (as in, packing a lot of stuff and having household furniture moved) and it’s such a pain in the butt! :/ Still, I’m excited!

Over a year to go

Never did I imagine that I would end up living in North Dakota. Having lived in Fresno, CA all my life I realize now just how much I took it for granted to have a variety of places to eat and a selection of things to do. I used to think I lived in such a boring city. Now, having lived in this wee town for over two years I realize I had it great over there. Just 4 hours from major cities, while here we have to travel for eight.
In a year we’ll be living somewhere else. It hasn’t been bad living here, as it’s the place that’s been our first home as a married couple. I really am going to miss it, but at the same time I know I want to see new places and perhaps finally meet some new people.
