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.

Yesterday was the first time I’d been to an ice rink in decades, and Isak’s first time ever. The grade 1’s at his school all went, and I volunteered to go with them. I couldn’t believe they still have the same newbie skater bars as they did when I was a kid! I have vivid memories of flying around smashing into each other with those. There were lots of other first timers, a handful of kids who have had piles of lessons, and everything in between.

Watching Isak get out there I was reminded a bit of Bambie, but he’d built up his confidence a lot by the time we left, all smiles and apple cheeks. Everyone had an incredible time, I grabbed a schedule, and we’re planning to go back soon. It’s in walking distance from our house, and would work well on stir-crazy rainy days. 2 years ago
