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.

Fuck TjMaxx! I quit after I found a better job at my bank. a few months in and I made it! horray!

create a petition and have it succeed

Hidden away behind the Oswego High School, there is a place where baby cows are butchered for veal. This fall, after living in Oswego for 20 years, was the first time I heard this place existed. The thought that such a cruel and sad place resides in my town just breaks my heart. Hopefully I’ll get around to this goal sooner than later, because I feel it’s so important to get this heinous building out.

First step, I guess, is to poke around the place, then learn how to start a petition.. Any help would be appreciated. I honestly don’t know what to do first.
