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.

making progress!

I have lost 35 pounds so far this year and I’m on track to hit this goal before the end of the year. No magic bullets….. just tracking all of my food and working out consistently. I am using - the most fabulous free fitness website which I highly recommend to everyone. (if you sign up, say Tamarac2 referred you!)

live in a French chateau
Just for a few months....

It is a dream of mine to stay in a French chateau. Somewhere in the countryside, with either beautiful vineyards or fields around it and plenty of nearby places to explore. I suppose this would work as well in any quaint European locale… Italian Villa, Swiss chalet, small castle, etc…. something with the feel of a lot of history, yet also comfy (so somewhat updated), and a great view.
