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.

Stop talking to myself (yes…I do that)
It gets lonely sometimes

There’s really nothing wrong with talking to yourself, as long as you don’t spend ALL your time talking to yourself. I find it way easier to work something out if I’m able to say it out loud to myself- whether it be an argument I’ve had with someone, or if I’m just trying to remember something. And sometimes (just sometimes) a really good conversation can come out of having a quiet chitchat with no one else around you ;)

Eat more fruits and vegetables
mmm broccoli

I’m trying to find a balance, and I do eat veggies sometimes, but right now I mostly just eat fruit.

get married, stay married, and live happily ever after
Almost there :)

December 25th 2007, My Johnny got down on one knee and proposed to me. As of February 4th, we have been together for a year, and will be getting married in June (yay :D).

A bit of advice from someone who’s almost got her happily ever after: When you get engaged, you need to seriously consider pre-marriage counseling. Talk it over with your significant other, do research on it, whatever. It will help a lot in the long run, and possibly save a lot of grief in the future. (Oh and generally, it’s nothing like how Robin Williams portrays it ;) so don’t be scared! )
