Beginnings HereI didn't do this!!!! I wanted to do this. I will help anyone who wants to do this now and forever
Let me know if You’d like to get the site up and running.
I’d help in any way that I am able. 1 month ago
How I did it: Instead of just having knee jerk reactions…take a second….take a breath…think through what is a thoughtful response which is complete.
Kitchen set is in dining room right now because the shape just works.
we will see if that remains long term! 1 month ago

I will get this done by year end. 2014. I mean this! 1 month ago
I figured out how to get whole again this year. That is good.
More revenue needed for 2015 to sustain the newer greater overhead lifestyle in the new home. Not sure if this is really how I want to spend my money, but it can be viewed as a bank account as I gain equity quickly with a 15 year mortgage, with now, just about 14 years to go!
Higher earnings are coming, too. staying ahead of the curve is always crucial.
I can get there sustainably. That is the plan. 1 month ago
How I did it: I found the site when my friend and I were goal setting every year. I kept written journals for the past 20 years! When I found 43 things, I was elated that I could memorialize my year and goals.
I am going to miss you. I think the site was ahead of its time. I am sorry you never figured out the business model. I wish you would have asked us all directly much earlier. I would have helped in some way economically. Or assisted in some way to develop a working business model with you.
I was able to think out loud with your tool and track my life and progress for nearly 7 years. It was a valuable service and tool for me. I want to thank you for the effort and thought that went into the development and the ten years of sustaining it.
In the future, however, don’t close the work you start. Hand it off. I do that all the time. I recruit someone to take over what I have built so that I can move onto the next challenge that fits me and my needs. I wish you would have. I understand some one wanted to buy it. Heck, I would have worked with them, and others to effect that.
So, I am sorry that you didn’t reach out to all of us and ask us what we would do to support you and survive you. We would have figured it out with you.
In gratitude I am for all of you who were involved in sharing your life and stories. The cheers. The comments. The great ideas of what people do with their time here. The willingness to discuss it. Celebrate it. Mourn it.
How could a site like that not stay alive?
I did live. I did laugh. I did love.
With all of you.

And I will put things away. where they need to be. And get rid of the large piece that I have so that I can be in a good place.
Ready….here it comes! 1 month ago
I just tuned in to realize what has been happening. You characterize my feelings so well on this. I feel betrayed.
How would one back up our profiles and posts? Are there best strategies for this?
And…is there no way to transition this to someone else’s care? 2 months ago
How can I help? Please advise. I would like to do what I can to keep the site alive. 2 months ago

Home. Work. Family. Connection.
