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.

buy and read the 43Things book
Woohoo! Just found out about this today.

Just found out about this book when I went to Amazon today. Congrats Robots! I’m super excited for you. If I had been around the site more (sorry!) I would have known and I’d have ordered my copy by now.

Can’t wait!



Be a better blogger (read all 3 entries…)
Wow! Cool!

I got nominated in the Best Business Blog category for the Black Weblog Awards. I don’t write about “black people things” just “people things” – but the blogs just need to either be by or about black people. So, I fit the “by” category! I was pretty surprised to get nominated. I found out when I was checking my blog stats and people were clicking to my site from the nomination list. Crazy! So, that’s pretty neat if I do say so myself.

Yay! You too can vote for One Organized Life for Best Business Blog for the 2008 BWAs

Wrote a new article

About navigating your way through L.A. if you are a newcomer. I’m really trying to work on my writing and not let it fall on the back burner.
