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.

jessicaawallaceLearning to swing dance after getting out of my wheelchair

I am really excited about this! 4 years ago I could barely walk a mile and had to use a wheel chair for long distances. With a lot of dedication and patience I can now walk an entire day at Disneyland. Really slowly with lots of breaks and icing my foot for several days afterwards. Anyway, I am taking on the goal of learning how to swing dance at my own pace as my ankle gets stronger and I learn to deal with my CPS pain management. It isn’t easy at but, I am doing it! I may not be able to dance an entire night before my foot gives out but, I am hoping I can dance for at least one song by the end of the year. I have learned how to do the triple step and rock step very slowly and can almost do it in time now! Hopefully as my ankle/foot gets stronger I will be able to do more! 1 month ago

We found a class that P and I could both get to, and it fell through big time. Its also roadblocked by the fact that

a. I am typically very exhausted on Fridays.
b. I am training for a marathon
c. P and I work on opposite sides of the city – difficult to find a class we can both get to after work, accounting for the fact occasionally (read 50% of the time) I don’t get out the hospital on time
d. I am going to Lismore is April for work for 10 weeks

So likely this goal is going to be put into the second half of 2014 basket. 5 months ago
