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.

jenoaPray for him 3x a day.

Got this from Elizabeth George’s book: A Wife After God’s Own Heart. Was apprehensive when my husband bought me the book ( he bought the husband version for himself) but its turning out to be pretty good. Its not too preachy and I like the down to earth suggestions. 9 years ago

jenoaAlternative #2: Learn to speak Bicolano

I think it will make him happy to see me trying to learn his dialect because he’ll see that i’m trying to appreciate his roots. I do understand Bicolano a little bit since my dad is also a Bicolano but I never really learned how to speak the dialect fluently. I guess I should try even if it feels awkward.

And as a sure bonus… I’m sure it’ll make my in-laws and dad happy as well. 9 years ago

jenoaAlternative #1: Compliment

A few weeks a go I happened to tell my husband that he looked good in a particular shirt. Just today he told me that he chose to wear the shirt because I liked it. So i guess I should compliment him more often when I see something I like about him. Boosts his ego and makes me happy he looks good. 9 years ago

jenoaHow should I go about it?

Okay so its harder than I thought it was. It wasn’t hard to see something to appreciate but it was pretty hard to think of a way to show it. I said thank you several times yesterday but I don’t know if he realized that I was trying to show him my appreciation. :p
Also after several thank yous it would sound pretty weird. I also fixed up our sleeping area before he got home so that he wouldn’t have to anything. But although I’m sure he thought that was nice and he appreciated it what I want him to see is that I appreciate HIM and the things he does and not make him appreciate me. This is weird. Oh well, I guess I have to come up with some creative ways of saying thank you every single day. 9 years ago

jenoaSmall step to a better life together...

My husband and I are friends and we love each other but anyone who’s ever been in a relationship knows that it takes a lot of work to keep things running smoothly and to keep the fire burning. I regret to say that I have taken my husband for granted a lot of times. When he does something nice, however small or big, I feel good but rarely take time to show him my appreciation. On the other hand, when he does something that irks me I do complain and even nag. I’m not saying that I’m a very bad wife or that we have a bad relationship. I just think its about time for me to make some real effort to show him how much I appreciate him and to remind both of us just why we fell in love with each other. 9 years ago
