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.

May 4th was International Female Riders’ Day, and to celebrate, I studied my rear end off and went down to the DMV to take my permit test, and I am happy to announce that I kicked it’s ass! 100%, and a new permit in my hand. I even wore my lucky earrings for my new license photo, and I enrolled in the basic rider’s course for next month. I am TOO excited!!!

Go to Sturgis
My Brick

As many of you have probably heard, the city of Sturgis, SD is paving the street in front of the museum with bricks that have been inscribed with personal messages from the riders of the rally. Each brick costs $75 bucks, and you can put whatever you want on it. I think they are selling them through the first of March, so there is still time for those of you who want to get in on this at the last minute! I decided that paying homage to my father and grandfather in such a way, and getting a replica brick sent to my home for the garden walkway was a fitting memorial to a family who has HD in their veins. I look forward to seeing the brick in person in August when I go to the rally <3 RIDE OR DIE!
