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.

2010 in with a BANG!

So here I am on New Years Day. I have a long tradition with not making resolutions, that way when you don’t follow through there’s no let down. But I was very excited to have found 2 very good and motivating exercise classes that I am going to take!

Slovak anyone?

So I was going through my Great Aunt’s stuff yesteday and found a couple of OLD postcards to my Great Grandfather from Czechoslovakia. I would imagine that it is from the 1920’s . Unfortunately I can’t read a damn thing on it. I had found another postcard a few years ago and luckily had the local priest from Poland translate it for me with the help from another old Slovak woman. I am on a mission now to learn the language and be able to throw a few sayings around to my customers that rarely get a chance to use the language.

Here we gooooooo......

So I’ve been super busy the past few months but.. it is finally slowing down!!! I never got around to doing the “spring Cleaning” so who cares. My dogs sure don’t and they contribute most of the mess. So, I am on a mission to start clearing out the crap. My great Aunt recently passed away and going through her house and all the crap that she had that we pitched out was ridiculous.I don’t want to be that lady. I figure that a little each night here and there and I’ll be in good shape in no time! Freecycle watch out .
