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.

When I was younger I was on our family farm which has always held many mysteries
(1-Often you could smell the coppery smell of fresh blood in the wind although we never did any killing on the farm and neither did any of the ones around ours-
2-An ancient schoolhouse on our property would sometimes have candle light in the windows even though its been padlocked for 60+ yrs and just for storage-
3-When I would get home from school I would often walk up to the upper barns and storage because I thought I heard my grandfather and someone else talking loudly and when I got there realized I was alone-only for him to come home hours later!(this happened on too many days to count)

But the one that terrifies me to this day is the day I saw a phantom black dog 4 times my size, wathing me like it was hungry. I was walking back to the main house with my grandfather in between the garage and garden while the sun was setting. I looked over to an old abandoned pig pen that had nothing but dirt left and as I did I saw a large black dog with red eyes, baring his teeth looking out from beside the building. I frantically told my grandfather and he immediately said dont look back at it, just to ignore it and walk faster!!!

Later it occured to me that when he stiffened and told me to not look back and we walked faster that this wasnt how normally adults would react to a large black dog around their grandkid. He didnt look at it, he didnt ask questions, he didnt laugh- just gave me those instructions and went.

This leads me to believe I wasnt the only one who had seen something like that on that farm and occasionally when the suns setting in the fall it still scares the crap out of me. 3 years ago
