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.

get rid of wall of boxes from last move (read all 2 entries…)
getting there....

Still have three boxes! But the Kids have a week off of school, so maybe I can focus on the house some?!? :D Haven’t been working on my goals lately, just busy being overwhelmed, but I’m changing that.

start going to church again

I haven’t started church going. But I have been working on my relationship with God. I think that is more important. I do daily devotionals and they have improved a great many of things in my life. Mostly my attitude. I’m changing a lot of things in my life right now and sometimes it’s easy to get overwhelmed. But I’m still trucking along. I feel like God has opened my eyes to a lot of things within my life, some good, some bad and I feel like He’s pointing me in the direction he wants me to take.

I have still have questions along the way but by working on my relationship with God and improving it, it’s easier to ask questions and get His answers.

I prayed for change and God is giving it to me. It’s a great thing that puts me in awe everyday.

start walking (read all 2 entries…)

I kinda fell off track on this one. No additional walking over the last week :( I’m going to start back up though…tonight too. In addition to walking though I’ve got to start stretching….my musk-cle recovery has been horrible and I think streching will help improve it immensely. I need to get some new tennis shoes too though…all of mine grew incredibly uncomfortable over my last pregnanct and I guess the change was permanent ‘cause they’re still not as comfy :( And good footware is important.

See all entries ...
