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.

Healing The Shame That Binds You by John Bradshaw

I hate the reading for this class.

It's happenning for me... want to help?

I am currently using my stashed-without-a-reason yarn to make blankets for charity. I completed one that was 42×42 and gave it to a local nursing home, who was of course very happy to have it for patients in wheelchairs. I’m also working on a baby blanket with Lion Brand Microspun, but I don’t think I’m going to have enough to make it big enough. So, if anyone has any Microspun they aren’t planning to use, please send me a message! I’m also very willing to take 6×6 squares in any material, any color, any pattern. I’ll send you a picture of the blanket when it’s done!

A Million Little Pieces by James Frey

I don’t care how much of it’s true, I really liked it.

Oops.

I finished this goal several weeks ago – precisely, the Tuesday after HP7 came out. Then I took a reading break in order to knit more. So, it looks like this:

759 + 9321 = 10,080 pages!!

I’ll still try to keep track, though, since this is fascinating to me. So, last night I finished The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks.

254 + 10080 = 10,334 pages.

You know the next 700 will take me the rest of the year.
