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.

2009 Lineup!

I have booked Orange County, CA in May Barcelona for NYE 2010!!

get a job in training
may need to be put on the back burner for a while...

In this economy, I have not received ONE SINGLE MENIAL PHONE CALL to ANY of the jobs I have applied to… so maybe I need to be more patient until things turn around.

write in my journal
i am actually doing ok with this one!

I have been going through a bit lately, a bit lonely and sick of being single – a bit sad and disinterested with my job – a bit frustrated with the economy and the sad state of my finances…and whatever else. When I feel I need comfort or to get it out of my system, I have been picking up my journal. It also helps me to remember why my life is happening the way it is, and where I’ve been. This is really evident when I go back and reread my entries. It’s really helpful, actually!
