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.

Operation Christmas Child

Hurray! I’ve managed to get my shoebox packed full of toys and goodies for underpriviledged children into the drop off point today. I’m so glad I was able to do it. I even decided it would be a nice time to donate some money over to the charity hosting the event. It is for Christmas, after all. Now if only I could try get into this charitable contribution frame of mind for times other than just Christmas. Well, at least I’m getting there (I hope)! :)



Learn to cook
Surprise, surprise! Bannoffee Pie a success!

Wow. This is a great start to my goal, and if this isn’t a sign I should strive onward, I don’t know what is! I actually made this work, and it was actually really yummy! :D I’ve noticed I’m not bad when it comes to making desert. I made chocolate lava puddings for Christmas and that was also a success… I better start writing down these recipes.
