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.

sessicanIn and Out

I go back and forth with this quite often. There are times when I really feel as though I need to go to church more often and lead a more spiritually and faith-focused life, whereas other times when I feel as though the whole thought of it all stresses it out way more than it improves my life. So, I’m in and out, back and forth, up and down, all over the place. Chad and I have kind of been going to Sandals church in Riverside, but I miss having communion like at Catholic masses and it is just so “commercial” to me. However, I love the messages that the pastor has – they are always so clear, simple, and touching. I feel that his messages get through to me and I enjoy how simple they are. That is their mantra, “Be real with other, be real with yourself, be real with God,” or something like that. And their messages are simply about how to really live your life being real, which I like. However, it is really hard to see myself becoming a regular parishioner at that church…for some reason of which I am not really sure. In any case, I think I am happy right now with leaving this goal up just as a little reminder that I do enjoy church and that I should go more often, but I just don’t want to stress out about it. If I go, I go. If I don’t, I don’t. I pretty much feel as though I am a good person who does good things and yet is sorry for the sins I commit and will own up to them. I feel as though, for the most part, I am a good Christian, and I need to find a way to be satisfied with it. ...more thoughts on this at a later date… 3 years ago
