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.

learn about wine
I've never been interested

in wine but my husband recently began to have an interest so for a date recently we went to a local winery, had a tasting, picked a favorite and bought a bottle for home. Ate some wonderful food while there and strolled the vineyard. It was a great time for us. Looking forward to visiting others in our area and hoping to locate a class or two to take about wines.

Start a journal (read all 2 entries…)
Don't know if you'd call this a journal or not but,

I have started a blog at blogspot. May sound crazy but absoloutely no one is aware of it. I write about happenings in my family and my thoughts, hopes, dreams etc. Sounds like a journal to me. It’s a work in progress. I’m not as regular with it as I would like yet.

become more motivated (read all 2 entries…)
Nothing gets you motivated like

your child!! I want to do and be my best for her. How can I ask or teach her things that I don’t do. On obedience: which I want from her. How can I ask her to be when I break rules. How can I expect her to drive properly when she sees me run stop signs and speed? SO. I am following all the driving laws. To set an example. Safety is the added benefit. I have one child and will only get one chance. I want to do it right. (I also quit littering because of her. Just little things like throwing my gum out the window, or a small piece of paper. It’s called integrity.)
