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.

Out of it

Entries of late have been quite sporadic. There is lots that has been going on in the real life of me and Mr. D. Namely, I’ve been growing a little baby D :)
Its been pretty tough with the nausea but so far baby D has been healthy and in the end that makes it doable. In the emotional dept. we’re a mix of scared and excited and I think for Mr. D it became most real when he saw the bouncy bobble in the ultrasound.

All this to say, with all these things going on, my entries have been sporadic and my entry to popclogs may not take place right away but 43t has been much appreciated. Insightful, supportive, and a good place to pull it together and try to cultivate the best me possible.

Thank you :)

Test taken. Feeling unsure of the outcome.

A little feeling of unease kicking in...

Starting to realize 43t will not be there in a few weeks and that I have to think seriously about migration to popclogs. I peeked at it twice but didnt poke around much. A part of me doesn’t want to go through all the trouble of starting from scratch on goal lists while I also fear this site disappearing one day and me not remembering my goals.

Health-wise, good news continues so I’m very relieved.

I took the first licensing exam. It was very difficult and I’m very uncertain if I passed. Ugh. Not a good feeling but trying to stick to the wait and see mindset.

Good yoga, few walks – keeping up a regular flow of activity but once again struggling to get back to the pool.

PS: Has anyone seen Rosewilder?
