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.

nouvelle jeneating well and feeling good

is definitely a goal – but “plan, prepare and eat nourishing food” doesn’t fill me with enthusiasm anymore when I look at it. Need a better phrase for this… 3 years ago

nouvelle jenSaturday

I grilled meat and vegetables for dinner. Also made guacamole and for dessert made blackberry pie. Bought a mid-range bottle of champagne which we drank after Max went to sleep. Nutrition for my soul. 4 years ago

dofleinitaZAnow that my mother's here,

this has new importance. I made delicious spicy vegetable stew for her last night, and I’ll make oatmeal in a few minutes. I want her to really feel healthier after this trip, and part of that is my responsibility to feed her well! 5 years ago

nouvelle jenso my definition of nourishing

has changed since reading Michael Pollan’s “Omnivore’s Dilemma”. I printed out some information about Community Supported Agriculture and Farmer’s Markets in the area. Joel Salatin (the sustainable farmer the majority of Pollan’s book is about) has also written several books. So either a share in a farm or local farmer’s markets for us from now on. Eggs, dairy and poultry will be more of a challenge. 5 years ago

nouvelle jenthis just gets easier as times goes on

and I am really enjoying cooking! Last Friday I bought some Gravenstein apples from the farmers market and made a pie. Okay it was a rectangular pie as I’ve somehow managed to misplace the four pyrex pie-plates I had so I used a casserole pan instead. I’ve brought lunch again every day so far this week and had a hot meal for Paco when he got home from school: Monday was lemon chicken, Tuesday he asked for quesadillas again and tonight the request was for BLTs. Once I changed grocery shopping modes I always seem to have fresh things on hand to make something! 5 years ago

nouvelle jentwo weeks of home cooked meals

and bringing my lunch to work! I’ve cooked pork-chops in grand marnier sauce, mashed potatoes with horseradish, quesadillas with black beans, cheese, green onions tomatoes and sour-cream – and fresh fruit every day! Last week I made a huge pot of vegetable minestrone which lasted for 4 days. For breakfast (for me anyways) oatmeal with flaxseed has been working really well; it fills me up and keeps me feeling good for hours! The gala apples from Yakima fruit market have been especially delicious the past couple weeks; I have one or two every day. 5 years ago

nouvelle jenfresh fruit

lately I’ve been on a fruit jag. Our raspberries are ripe; every morning I’ve been picking about 1 cup for breakfast. Yesterday at Costco I bought tangerines, cherries and bananas. Paco’s friend Colin came to help Paco with a big yard cleanup job today and I could offer him a yummy plate of fresh fruit, a croissant and iced hibiscus tea! 6 years ago

nouvelle jenmore cooking Sunday

I made chicken enchiladas with home-made tomatillo salsa. I made orange-currant scones and another batch of granola. There is still soup from few days ago – so for lunch this weekend I had soup, cheese and french-bread. Yum! For me this goal is about several things: cooking more, eating nourishing food and eating out (especially at work) less. Doing well so far! 6 years ago

nouvelle jenthis week

I cooked (and froze some) great vegetable minestrone I made from scratch. I cooked Paco his favorite meal: pork chops, garlic mashed potatoes and green beans. I made enough for several nights so he could have good food when he got home from class. I made granola which it turns out Max likes! Max is usually partial to smooshy food so I was surprised to find him scooping this granola into a little bowl, taking outside and munching on it! 6 years ago
