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.

Try out this babysitting thing. Try to look at it as "Practice".

I’m not practicing for anything!! After today I’m pretty sure I never want to have kids…

Except for those sweet moments when Miranda was babbling to herself or she was just sitting quietly looking at everything with her big brown eyes…

But those moments are not worth the rest of moments of screaming and pouting and running around like wild animals and back-talking.

And the diapers.

Still, its the easiest job I’ve ever had.

Maybe me and Stephen will just have one baby… and then after that baby is grown up completely we’ll adopt one…. and that’ll be it. No more after that. Babies are crazy insane and a lot of trouble. What was I thinking? 6 years ago
