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.

Did more exercise!

Yay I exercised again last night!

My friend was coming over, so I asked her to exercise with me. We did that sequance of exercise I mentioned before 3 times, and my sister came home when we were halfway through and did the last 2 times with us. Afterwards, we went swimming were we did laps and played tigi which was quite tiring.

I think that I am already starting to get fitter, because I found the exercises a lot eaiser then my friends, and I can feel my arms getting stronger.

I love this goal! I have already exercised two days this week, out of three. And I am going to exercise again today!

I am also trying to drink more water every day now.

Do something creative every day (read all 2 entries…)

I need to start this goal! I keep thinking that it has to look a certain way, but it doesnt. Even if I do a little thing that is creative, it will be great.

Actually I think it was quite creative choosing an outfit for a dress up party the other day. I put something together out of my wardrobe, and it looked really great. I count that as creative, because I am always trying to dress a bit differently and great.

Tomorrow I will try and do something that is small and creative, just to start off.

Today i exercised with my younger sister, Caroline, who is 14. It was good exercising with her, she is very enthusiastic, so that got me motivated.

We did two repititions of that sequance I wrote earlier, then we swam laps in the pool. We did laps of freestyle, breaststroke and backstroke.

I always feel really great after exercising, like I have done something productive.

Am not going to have time tomorrow, might get up early so I can do some exercise before I go to work.
