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.

Loving it!

My kids rarely get diaper rashes now and it is a cost saver, plus it is better for the environment! YAY! Not to mention they just look adorable with their little cloth diapered butts.

I did it.

And while it was yummy, my tastes have certainly changed since I lived at home. I think when I make this again, I’ll have to adapt my mom’s recipe to something I would like more.

Our boy is HOME!

8 months to the day after we received his picture for the first time, our son is home. He is 10 months old and is a pure joy. Ok, maybe not all the time, but one little look can erase the screaming cranky moments (from both him and I) away. He and our daughter (the surprise we got while in the process of adopting) love to just look and smile at each other.
