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 Beginning

2.3 miles down!

In light of the long-awaited break in the weather, I went running on Sunday and BOY did it hurt. I’m clearly not as young as I used to be. My legs actually hurt while I was running, which never used to happen.

I’m not complaining, though. I’m just happy to be one step closer to my goal of (did I agree to 150 miles?) by the end of the year.

Two Books Down!

I’m just about on track! I’ve read 2 books already this year: The Art and Power of Being A Lady and Hyperbole and a Half. I’m in the middle of a few as well. If I can finish these 3 by the end of the month. I’ll be pretty far ahead of schedule for the year. Yay me!

Oddly Specific

As of today, it should really be 11 new recipes. I actually tried something new with tofu and…I am impressed with myself.
