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.

Updating the Blog and Changing the Look

While I have not been updating my blog or 43 Things that much, I have been relative active on social media and elsewhere. But I recently moved hosts and platforms with my blog at http://bitdepth.org and I’m going to try to write a bit more there too.

A Good Amount of Bike Riding

I just realized that I hadn’t crossed this goal off or updated it for a while, but it was completed. The total number of kilometers for this year by the beginning of October was 1165 km. To be more technical for the summer it would be 1093 km.
It was a lot of fun and I think that it will be a regular thing. I miss biking now that there is snow on the ground.

Half Way

With a 50 km ride today I passed the halfway mark in my cycling adventures for the summer. Now I’m just over 500 km which makes me really happy. My health is good and my diet is better as well. Cycling is wonderful and taking longer and longer rides is the big difference this time. This is the second long weekend this summer with rides totaling over 100 km. While I’m a bit sore right now, it’s a good, healthy feeling.
