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.

find a new church (read all 2 entries…)

After trying about all the churches in town (well, the non-culty ones) I tired of the wishy-washy “Seeker Sensitive” garbage. I finally found a church home and we placed our membership in an Independent, and Fundamental, Baptist Church.

I’ll hire some mojados to do it!

I guess I'm odd and old fashioned

Everyone wants a more “progressive” experience, whereas I’m the opposite. I want an experience that is more traditional, where I can sing the hymns I know and love in reverence, and where the pastor isn’t afraid to offend. If I don’t feel under conviction at the end of the sermon, I don’t feel satisfied or that the sermon was inspired. Maybe Churches like this are a dying breed in California as everyone wants the “emerging seeker-sensitive” experience. Walks on the beach are great, but you can’t explore the ocean without a map (C.S. Lewis “Mere Christianity” reference there.)
