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.

become a member of the Pagan Clergy (read all 2 entries…)

This was such a fantastic part of my life. And the second large spiritual step in 2010. The first was my Croning at PSG and then to be embraced into the Pagan Clergy as a First Degree. It inspired me to remain connected to the Goddess and remember where every blessing comes from.

Daily: Reflect on 5 things for which I'm grateful. (read all 9 entries…)
Things I'm grateful for...

at the beginning of the new year, there was many things that I am grateful for.
1. being alive – surviving cancer of the throat
2. being in a good relationship – I love my husband with all my heart and soul.
3. having a loving step-daughter
4. having a new car to help me get around
5. being able to have a job and earn some extra money

become a medical transcriptionist. (read all 3 entries…)
Not my cup of tea...

Okay, this is not something that I want to become. Therefore, I will be removing this goal from my list. I have to finish this course, even though I am not going to be a Medical transcriptionist. It was a nice idea and in the beginning, it seemed like something that I would love to do. And it might still work out… with Dragon Talk or something, but for now, I think that I will just be happy with myself when I finish the course and move on with my life.

I have gotten a seasonal job doing taxes. I can’t make enough money doing that, but at least it is something.

Later all…
