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.

Buy a House (read all 5 entries…)
I'm in!!!

Hooray! I have FINALLY maded it through all of the paperwork, the stress, the muscle cramps to say that I am completely moved into my new home and I am unpacked! I have a peace in my heart that can’t be described. The neighborhood is wonderful, the yard is exceptional, and I have LOTS of room. I am so glad that I pursued this one.

Buy a House (read all 5 entries…)

So, here I sit…still waiting to find out WHEN I will be attending a closing for my new home. I spoke to my attorney last week and she noted that I should get a DATE early this week.

I have packed up pretty much everything that I own, and I am sit in the middle of chaos. This process can be somewhat excrutiating.

Wear a gown for prom

I didn’t have a date for my prom, so I didn’t go. That was back before it was ‘cool’ to go dateless. I always felt that I missed out on being specifally dressed in a long gown with a sexy date, and just being in a fairy tale for a night. But now, at my age, it should be interesting to see how I can make that one happen.
