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.

Success at last

So I finally got motivated enough(and pissed off enough at the nearby shopping center for their senseless destruction of habitat) to actually do this on a daily basis.
Even though it has required that I get up earlier than I used to.

Veganism is not enough

I’ve been vegan for a couple years now, and have finally realized that just being a vegan is not enough. (I know, I’m slow)
Having recently read Striking at the Roots by Mark Hawthorne has really driven home this point. I would really like to go and do something more for the animals.
I think leafleting or letter writing would be the easiest things for a shy/introverted guy like me to get started.
Now if I can just get off my butt and do it.
