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.

countrylady1747Making Tamales

is not hard, as much as it takes most of the day. It is something to do in stages, cooking the different meat at night, and then filling the husks in the morning after making the masa filled with broth from the meat, and a homemade salsa in the masa, as well, and then after all 100 are rolled, steaming them for about 4 hours in a large pot. If anyone wants more directions, I will be happy to share. Mine have several different meats, goat cheese, salsa, sometimes potatoes as well…delicious! 19 months ago

I still have not mastered it after 4 or so tries with different methods. I need to make them with lard to get the perfect texture! 2 years ago

I had my first Tamale at a friend’s birthday party when I was 15. Ever since, I order one every time I see one on the menu at any Mexican Restaurant. Nothing is better than a home-made tamale! I would love to learn how to make them but I heard it is really hard! 2 years ago
