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.

kmom2468Paperwork - doing it!

Ordered copies of stuff that we need – should be here soon – and then can submit request and do some more “hurry up and wait.” Could be worse. I can’t complain. Keeping on keeping on! 5 months ago

kmom2468Going to run the VA gauntlet soon to make sure our ducks are lined up

Getting prepped to buy a house this fall! Yay! But first, ugh, paperwork! 7 months ago

kmom2468Filing for Benefits

Closing down this project. Slowly. Because that’s how the military rolls. 16 months ago

kmom2468Ending of an Era

Working on the final paperwork before our obligations to the Army have been fulfilled. Will certainly miss it, but looking forward to not being tied to it. 19 months ago

kmom2468Putting on an event for our unit

Will be fun, but it’s a lot of work. Everything is done by volunteers, so sometimes it’s difficult to get things done. Still, it will all work out. Trying to give it my best, but it’s difficult with also working full time. Someone who has more time needs to be in charge of this thing. Might be time for me to retire from the Army ;-) 2 years ago

kmom2468The never ending paperwork

There must be a place free of paperwork that all good military spouses go to be rewarded after filling out the tons and tons of forms that the government requires for everything military ;-) 3 years ago

kmom2468We lost one yesterday who served with my husband

A senseless random act of killing. Trying to support my husband and the others in our unit whose hearts are suffering. 3 years ago

kmom2468Only a few more years to go here

Pretty soon he will have his 20 and we’ll be done with the military. He did his share; I’m very proud of him. 3 years ago
