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.

Cut The Dose

My BP meds have now been cut in half!

I’m proud of this accomplishment.



Try a New Beer Every Month (read all 2 entries…)
Westmalle Trappist Ale Triple

“Westmalle is the orginator of the widely imitated triple style. The abbeys full name is Our Lady of the Sacred Heart. Founded in 1794 it began making beer in the early 19th century. Beer production became commercial in 1920.”

* Made by Belgium Monks, Westmalle is a favorite of my husbands. But for me – No thanks. It had an aftertaste I disliked.



expand my social circle
Childless

Being 32, married and childless can make this difficult at times. many clubs and group activities, at my age tend to fall under the “family fun” catagory, singles or child haters.

Yes – believe it or not I have found a child free group. However, they tend to want people who are childless and not thinking of having any (aka – not child friendly).

I do not dislike children. I was a teacher and a child care provider. We have just decided that at this time we don’t want to start a family.

Friends with children tend to assume that childless couples don’t want to do family oriented activities. I have made it clear – I don’t mind it at all.

It obviously means working out tight schedules for parents though.

Either way – I’m pressing on. :)
