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.

Onkelowhat can't you make vegan!?!

on sunday night I made
I wish I had started earlier than 7pm, but it was necessary in order to accommodate a lazy afternoon watching Legends of the fall and then (finally) writing my lesson plans. it wasn’t ready for consumption until nearly 9:30, but that was okay as this makes for a relatively light meal. I skipped the bell pepper and instead added kale, broccoli and red onions to mine. it’s been so long, I forgot how much I love the versatility of quiche! we had some Follow your Heart cheddar in the fridge so I added that as well, for an extra cheesy-kick that both j and I liked. this is a winner in my book! 6 years ago


last week I made not one, but two “recipes” to get us through the week. The main one was Corn Chowder. care of VwaV, which is wonderfully spicy and jalapeno-y. less than one serving remains in the fridge. secondly, I attempted to break my addiction to spicy tofu sammiches from the Palm Tree by making my own tempeh “chicken” salad to take for lunch. I packed it full of good stuff like kale, carrots, walnuts and even some spicy pickles. j was a fan but, while I thought it was good, it came nowhere near the goodness that is the “sammich” and so I still visited the PT twice this week. this is one I’ll keep working on (no recipe, just winged it) til I come up with something that satisfying my sammich craving. 6 years ago

Onkeloenough with the number one china, already!

this is a subdivision of this “thing”
j and I are committing to take-out no more than once a week. To make this possible, we really need to get back into the groove of cooking (at least) one big recipe a week so that when we open the fridge, we aren’t met with desolation and the need to order in. I have at least 5 cookbooks which I’ve never cracked and a slew of blogs I read on a daily basis that are filled with ideas. this week’s recipe will result from this “thing”
stay tuned for details! 6 years ago
