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.

stop reading the twilight books! Arrrghhhh!!!! (read all 2 entries…)
helpless

but what can i do if he persist on looking as luscious as this?



stop reading the twilight books! Arrrghhhh!!!! (read all 2 entries…)
my shame

its mortifying. i have read all books three times each now and watched the movie maybe seven times. so, so, so embarrassing.



lose 3 pounds this week (read all 3 entries…)
more than 3 but also more than 1

from march 2008 to march this year, i managed to lop off 10 pounds. if you do the math, it’s pretty lame. that translates to roughly .20 pounds per week, less than 1/8th of the target.

i have to warn you however not to rely on my calculations too much. i got a midterm grade of 68 in college algebra.

but 130 pounds now from 140 pounds a year ago. hah. math can’t hurt me now. i rock in my clothes!
