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 drinking for 1 month (read all 2 entries…)
Day 7

Been drinking in bars the last 3 nights.
Night 1 was sprite and diet coke
Night 2 was diet coke then cranberry and club soda
Last night was just cranberry and club soda. Am getting a little bored of it, but not so disappointed that i want to break.

I can remember just about everything since Monday 22nd of January. This is the longest period of conciousness that I can recall. I can’t say that I’m necessarily a better person without the alcohol, but i’m far more functional.

24 more days of this- i wonder what i’ll be like on the 21st of February?

make martinis
On Hold

This must be put on hold due to my current month of sobriety.
27 days to go until i can start learning how to make fantastic martinis.

It's fun

Not always the most appropriate of passtimes, defintely not in my case, but i can’t think of a kiss that wasn’t at least partially fun.

One this year thus far – very messy, very inappropriate, very fun :)

See all entries ...
