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.

have a baby some day
Pregnant! Due 6/26 ... almost there. Shocking.

Without any effort … I am now going to have a baby. Unbelievable. We find out 2/8 if it’s a boy or a girl ….

Buy a House
PLEASE Grandma!

So – there is a chance that when my grandparents move out of their house in a few years they’ll sell my husband and I their house. HOPEFULLY on a owner-financed setup. It would be really great because it’s a great house. Decent size. Kept up. Of course I don’t want to kick my grandparents out and into a retirement community. But I definitely hope that the timing is right and we can work something out.

read more for fun
I read a book! For fun!

A friend of mine bought me a book as a gift for my bridal shower last October and I’ve finally gotten around to reading it! I read it in two days. It is called “the Food of Love” and essentially it’s foodie porn. Lots of delicious descriptions about food and cooking in Italy. And then sex. So – it’s basically beach reading for foodies. AKA, foodie porn! :) Molto buono.
