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.

What a positive day!

1. I’m happy I live in my city – Cracow. Today I visited one of our great museums – I saw Royal Private Apartments and it was awesome! I’m grateful for having this wonderful time there.
2. I spent few hours with my Mom, we had excellent cheese cake and quite good espresso. No quarrel, isn’t that great? ;)
3. I wrote an e-mail that I wanted to write. And sent it.
4. I read again one of my favorite stories, which is Stephen King’s “Dolan’s Cadillac”. I spotted few great quotes like:
“So why shouldn’t I laugh? It’s only when a man like me stops laughing that people wonder if something is wrong”. Two simple sentences, but you can feel this special atmosphere of slight madness beneath the surface, the madness which is going to intensify. I love it in King’s books…
5. Actually – the previous entry is still for this day, so I am grateful I can finish now fighting with writing in english ;). Have a good afternoon/evening/night/day – depending on your timezone!

go to more museums
I love my city!

Today I visited Royal Private Apartments of our Royal Castle in Cracow. I was actually going to tour another museum, recently opened, but it was a kind of “open day” with free entrance, and the very long queue has formed. So I chose Wawel Castle and I have to say, that it was wonderful morning. We had own guide for only 10 people – many, many interesting informations. And of course extremely beautiful interiors, feeling of the distant past, small time journey. I’m really glad, that I picked up this goal, that’s not the last entry here, I’m sure.
