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.

Aloha50Feel like rambling.....

Why do people feel the need to write every thought on Facebook? Today I noticed that someone wrote “driving home from work now.” Well, ok… “I’m getting ready to sit on the toilet.” Should I post it? Reminds me of a line from the movie The Incredibles – “Society’s need to celebrate mediocrity.”

Anyway, my inner voice says that I’m on the right track in life (at the moment). I feel at peace. My son is happy and healthy, I have a job that I like, I live in an amazing place, and my cars are running! Woo Hoo! Last year my Civic was broken into 2x, needed a head gasket, water pump and timing belt, etc, etc. My Volvo was trying to kill me (shutting down when I turned corners and slowed down at a red light). It has since given me a reprieve and no longer shuts down. Woo Hoo!
My boyfriend woke me up in the middle of the night and hugged me and said “I can’t give you wealth or a big house, but you will never find someone who loves you more.” I think I’ll keep him.
Last week he was doing our laundry and said “you have two categories “filthy and filthy but wearable.” He knows me so well!
One day I was standing next to my son and I bent over and sniffed him and said “Miles! go take a shower, you smell like ass!” He said “what are you doing? I just farted!”
Ok, enough of my rambling…. 2 years ago
