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 banjo (read all 2 entries…)
Cat Monster House String Band

asher found a banjo in his house! now i’m on a mission to turn him, his housemate, and myself into a string band.



Run
rain run

went for my first portland run today. i hadn’t been running here, because i don’t really like running out in the world where people are, cause it doesn’t feel that meditative or like i’m getting away from stuff, but there aren’t really woods here to run in like there are at home. it was ok. i wore my purple imitation converses with penguins on them, cause i guess i either forgot to pack my running shoes before we drove across the country, or they were one of the many casualties of the road trip.



bike to work every day
local guru lady

just got a job in my neighborhood at this garden center being the plant guru lady, instead of out at the stupid mall in tigerd. now the only day i can’t bike to work is tuesday, unless one of the million biker kids who’s promised to build me a cello-trailer comes through, cause tuesday’s cello guru day.
