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.

goldieimissuMy heart is broken, but I have hope.

Have you ever seen a starved being…? It is something words can not describe. Last Tuesday we went to the rescue shelter, and saw this extremely emaciated collie X. He was just lying there looking up at us with the most gorgeous eyes, strange how starvation makes the eys more prominent, he looked weak, almost sick. We asked the caretaker if he may be sick, and was told, no he is just very quiet. We both wanted him immediately. He got carried to the car by the caretaker, as hubby had a fall few days earlier and broke a finger and bruised his hand. As we got home, he just slipped through the pallisade fence…something only a little dog can do. We managed to get him back inside the house…the front yard is out of limits for now. He was so dirty and smelly, that every time you touched him, you were forched to get the dirt and stench off by scrubbing your hands. The first time I touched him i realized why he was so lethargic, almost no muscle and certainly no fat, just ribs and bones contained in a bag of matted coat. The next day he went to the parlour, did we get a surprize! He looked 90% Rough collie, and 10% Alsation. He is so sweet,eager to please, when he has energy that is(He mostly sleeps, 22-23 hours). My heart is broken for him, but there is hope, i believe that we can nurse him back to the amazing dog he was intended to be although the prognosis for starved dogs is not good, but I’ll try my best, because i already love him so much, and don’t want him to die. 5 years ago
