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.

Fill up a cemetery with photos.
St. Francis Cemetery

I went out to St. Francis cemetery the other day after reading about it on and realizing I’d never been out there. I took photos of every single grave (about 100) and plan on uploading them to find a grave so that distant families can find their loved ones.

The two most curious headstones read “Unknown Child of Mexican Descent”. There were two of these right next to each other. There was no other information and I don’t know anything of their history.

Sell all that shit piled up in the garages. (read all 5 entries…)
Off with it..

I’m tired of it and I can’t imagine spending a whole weekend trying to get you guys to buy this crap so I’m sending it all off to the Women’s Shelter. Good by crap.

Not so much

as we should have, but we did write a few times. It’s getting cold now and I’m tired of seeing this on my list so I’m moving the chalk to the virtual rubbish pile.
