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.

NicoleSnickerdoodles <3

I remember baking snickerdoodles in my high school home economics class. They were warm, delicious, and simple. Sometimes it’s the simple things that taste the best. I wanted to bake some cookies yesterday that reminded me of crisp autumn days and warm comfort food-snickerdoodles fit the bill perfectly. What’s not to love about sugary buttery cookies rolled in warm cinnamon and sugar? I had every ingredient in my pantry for the classic cookies except cream of tartar, so a quick google search led me to this recipe that left that ingredient out:

The cookies came out wonderful; crispy and crunchy on the outside, and fluffy and chewy on the inside….perrrrrfect. And they are extra yummy with a tall glass of milk, great for dunking :) 2 years ago

NicoleMy sweet baby girl

This is my beautiful baby girl Emma. She was born on August 5, 2011.

From the moment I first held her in my arms I made a silent pledge to always be the best mother I can be. Now I’m making this pledge not so silent. Emma is 3 months old now and I know some of the struggles and the difficulties and I know there will be plenty more ahead, but so far motherhood has been the greatest challenge I’ve ever faced. Someone once told me that being a mother is the hardest job you’ll ever love. And how true that is, being a mother is the most difficult and rewarding job I’ve ever had. I can be covered in spit-up, sleep deprived and near tears because she wont stop crying and suddenly she’ll look up at me with those big blue eyes and give me a big gummy grin that just melts my heart and warms my soul.

This goal is for you, Emma. It will never be complete; I will always work harder to be the mother you deserve. 2 years ago
