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.

be single (read all 5 entries…)

i do not want to be divorced, i want to be single again. i do not want to go through this experience – this ibs inducing mire i have been wading though. it is sucking my life away more each day and i have been wasting that gift by allowing this to continue. i refuse to give him any additional time – it is ended! i refuse to have the stain of hate on my soul, the lawyer can deal with it til i have to go to court. God will get me though it, so glad i asked for His help.

find my own style (read all 3 entries…)
gray shirt-soft flowered pink and grey skirt

i love this long shirt, more like a tunic. tomorrow it will be paired up with long floral skirt, grey and pink shades very muted and soft. have been enjoying the long skirts, feel good to walk in (and the pretty slips make them flow). think i will choose the fine silver chain, small silver hopes and the heavy silver band. no bracelets. sleeves are long and cuff back.
everything ready to go except shoes??

rose or cream

have to decide on a rose or cream?
the shower curtain and tank set i love have to be ordered first i think to make sure the colors are what i want. i also saw a rose rug—but to go on the wall i think. maybe i will make a couple extra dollars somehow this week. need about $50 to order all three. hmmmmmmmm?
