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.

I'm still not the best

I still think to the same old same old crap most of the time. Every now and again though I am finding ways to think outside the box and do new things. Exciting things. My husband and I had planned to take a simple vacation next week, nothing fancy or too big, and on a whim we are now going to California to visit my brother. I’m so excited!! We also had a blast at our impromptu trip to the local hockey game. :)

buy more shoes

I was definitely doing this as often as I can to the point I didn’t have anywhere to put my shoes and had shoes I never even wore because I had too many pairs. I’m talking like 2-3 shoe racks plus shoes in boxes in the closet and stashed anywhere they’d fit. I’ve since slimmed down my collection and donated a lot of my shoes to charity. I realized half the fun was buying them and wearing them for a time while they were fun and now its someone else’s turn to enjoy them. Plus I needed to make room for all the other shoes I wanted to buy ;) Now that fall is here and soon winter I’m definitely on the prowl for some amazing winter boots!

be more independant (read all 2 entries…)

I’ve since excelled in this. I have my own job, own car, own apartment and the only person I depend on in any way is my husband because obviously we have bills together. We’ve furnished our apartmwnt with no one’s help and I buy all my own clothes, makeup, groceries, I care for my pets on my own. I won’t say I’m done with this goal because I’ll never stop needing to do on my own but I’m also still learning to be co-dependant with my husband.
