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.

Fly First Class

Everyone seems to be getting bumped to first class! Doesn’t anyone pay to go there? The only person I saw who actually paid for it thinks it’s a waste of money..everyone else (who got it free) appreciates it for the fun indulgence it is. I think it being free would make it even cooler…maybe I should change to “fly first class for free” but it feels a little out of my control.

Travel to Thailand
Soon...very very soon

I’m leaving on the 18th December! Oh my gosh! That’s just a little over 2 weeks! I’m crazy…I’ve never been away from home for more than 2 weeks and now I’m going overseas for 6…alone. If you believe in God please pray for me…I need all the help I can get at this point. I just need to keep repeating to can go shopping (I tend to forget things like socks, toothpaste, my bags, etc). And I have a major probelem getting places on time..what if I miss one of my flights..oh Lord have mercy I’m doomed!!! (and yet very happy and excited)
