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.

A new airport

Yay! I’m all checked out at a new airport. Nice aircraft, nice owner/manager and nice facilities. Next flight, 2 weeks! And finally my husband will be up in the front with me, instead of in the back as ballast :)

It's about time

ok, so this week i FINALLY got my butt back out to the airport with the push from my husband. I’m really glad he pushed me because i’d forgotten how fun it is to just fly… how easy it is to make excuses to NOT do things that might get us in to an uncomfortable situation, be it a place, or in this case, running into a person with whom I did not wish to see. Luckily that person was no where to be found, and the evening flight was fabulous! smooth, clear and cool. A perfect way to end the day, doing what I love with the one I love.

getting there

so i’ve done a lot of reading and i’ve finally started to get pencil onto paper. my mother in law is an artist and she’s been great to help me see ‘what’s not quite right’ in my words.

my proudest finished products include an empty wine glass, a planter box and my foot, although i made my toes rather stubby… i also did a drinking glass that i’m not ashamed to show my friends.

i still need to committ time more regularly to this. maybe there is some talent hidden in me after all…
