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.

Making progress

I pulled all of my stuff out today. I am trying to catch up on some of the themes I have going but get sidetracked and want to start new ones! I did an 8×8 lake/sun/camping theme for this summer. It is all ready to go just need to get some great pictures this summer! I also worked on love/wedding themed pages.

76. I know I shouldn’t tan but still do sometimes.
77. I have to use butter with my jelly.
78. I love to play cards.
79. I used to get sick a lot.
80. I have issues with the welfare system. Too many people who abuse it are on it and government is doing nothing about it.
81. I love my job some days and hate it others.
82. I shop more when I am stressed out/depressed. On the other hand, I love designer or high end things but only shop clearance for them.
83. I get sick at the thought of family members that fight over money
84. I love to belt out songs when I am by myself. I CANNOT sing.
85. Sometimes it feels good to just cry.

Isn’t it odd how if you repeat any word over and over, it begins to sound increasingly wierder?
