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.

Read a book a day
My me time!!

I find it very relaxing to read everyday either during a break or before I go to sleep. I even bought me a Nook from Barnes and Noble and I love it. It makes reading that much funner.



Remember why children are so precious.
Smiles

I have a beautiful god-daughter who is the reason why I smile everyday. Just thinking about her makes a bad day into a beautiful one. Yesterday I recieved new pictures that her Mother had done and I have not been able to stop looking at them. She has such a smile and is such full of life that you cant help but feel better even when you are feeling sad. I feel so blessed to have beautiful daughters as well as having Rain in my life. I dont think I could thank my best friends for adopting such a wonderful little girl that probably saved my life.



Share why I love my job.
Helping the young.

I have been blessed with a wonderful job in which I am an x-ray Technician. Today I was asked to talk to a group of high school kids about my job and why I love it so much. Before I knew it I had talked for allmost an hour and still had plenty to say. After I was finished they all told me that they could tell how much I loved working here and some were intrested in finding out more information about becoming a technician.
