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.

exercise regularly

Inspired by Randy & his work out success, I’ve decided to restart my own exercise regime. I’m only 4 days in but already I feel great. The plan is to do 30-60 minutes of cardio a day, plus crunches and weight training every other day.

I’ve lost 5 lbs since the beginning of summer (due to being sick) but I want to keep that off, and maybe lose another 10 lbs although I’m not focused on the #s.

I will have reached this goal after 3 months of daily work outs. It will be interesting to see how fit I can get & how much better I can feel.

Start a Facebook fan page for Oh So Retro

Finally sat down, organized my photos and information and created my Facebook Fan page. It wasn’t too hard, mostly it was just time consuming. It only took a couple hours to do and now all my products and information is in one place. It will make updating my customers on new products much easier too. I don’t know what took my so long but I’m glad I finally did it!

Keep my twitter feed and followers organized

Had a couple minutes to kill this morning so I spent it using to clean up my page a bit.. It’s such a mess! I’ll have to try to do a few minutes when I can until it’s functional and I’m caught up on new followers. I was caught up once before but I got lazy and haven’t added anyone new in months. I want to make sure that doesn’t happen again.

See all entries ...
