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.

last week – 3/5. Got my bus pass back from R, so that helps on the days I don’t have the energy to walk the entire route. 21 months ago

bermudamohawkbeautiful day for a walk

This morning was dry (finally), crisp, and cool. The sun was trying to peek out from behind the clouds with some success. R joined me for the walk. (Having a companion always makes the walk seem shorter.) It felt natural to be back out on the pavement again.

So long as the weather stays dry, I’m ready to leave the car behind. Who would’ve thought it’d be easier for me to walk to work in the colder fall and winter months than in the summer? 22 months ago

When I first moved to town, I walked to work nearly every single day, despite the fact that I moved at the end of November/the start of winter. I diligently kept walking in the spring, too. But once the warmer weather of summer arrived (early this year) and stayed, I stopped walking and started being lazy.

Fall has now arrived and it looks like this cooler weather is here to stay for awhile. Thank goodness. It’s time to abandon my lazy ways of driving 1.4 miles to work each day. What a waste. I have a FREE bus pass and two good legs attached to two good feet. (Hmm, I’m pretty sure I’ve said this before…) I should easily be able to ditch the car in favor of walking or busing.

Today was day 1. Here’s to keeping a good thing going. 23 months ago
