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.

eat cookie like cookie monster
Finally did it!

For my 27th birthday this past Monday! I made at least three other people do this with me as well. I made sure to get larger than normal cookies so that there would be an optimal amount of cookie shrapnel.

Worth it!

Still green but marking this done.

It’s been two months and I’ve gone as far as learning quite a bit of tuck turns and into some cross hand as well. This is so much fun! I’m still learning but I’m going to mark this complete even though I’ll continue to take new classes and learn more moves. I currently have no partner to practice with outside of class so any followers who’d like to practice in the Chicago area or anywhere near Elk Grove Village in IL, let me know. :)

Class 1 complete. Class 2 started yesterday.

Just learned the basics for the triple step last night. I’ve had a lot of fun taking these classes. Just wish I had more time for practice in between classes! Hmm… When can I mark this done? Thoughts on that?
