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.

Daily: Reflect on 5 things for which I'm grateful.
Daily? Hmmm...

Start with the big things…
1. Grateful for my husband, that he will always be my soul mate, no matter what.
2. Grateful for my kids, that they are healthy and that they remind me how important it is to be patient, understanding and loving, not only with them but with everyone.
3. Grateful for my friends, who know me and like me anyway. :)
4. Grateful that I had the support of those around me when I decided to go back to school.
5. Grateful that I live somewhere where education is tuition-free!

throw away 30 things I don't need (read all 2 entries…)

Haha, didn’t so much get rid of 30 things as keep 30 things and leave the rest behind! Still. Funny, though, getting rid of my Stuff has somehow not eased my clutter problem. How can that be?

teach my kids German (read all 5 entries…)

Wellll….I didn’t teach them, but we moved to Germany. :)
