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.

AlixI am preparing a long weekend trip to Lisbon, Portugal

So I found a couple of useful resources online today to help me set a budget, fine tweak my Portuguese (and not mix it with the spanish and the Italian I already speak well) and re-reading a trvel guide I’ve had for years.

enough with the dreaming, it’s time for some action: set a budget, book a room at a local aprtment building, buy a cheap airplane tocket grab the (light) suitcase and GO! 15 months ago

SimplicityInTheLBCTwo trips booked for summer!

I get to do some traveling this summer, now that I’m pretty sure I’ll have a job in August.

First I’ll be going with the Man to Sequoia National Park, where I haven’t been since I was in elementary school. The Man has never even been in woods (he grew up in Florida), so I’m excited to go tromping through the redwoods with him. Definitely also going to hit up Crystal Cave and the stalactites that you can play tunes on.

Then I’ll be flying solo out to Chicago – where I have ALSO never been – to visit a friend of mine who just had a baby. I am a little less excited about this one because really, babies, not my thing. But I haven’t seen my friend in a while, and I’ve never gotten to go to Chicago. Hopefully I’ll be able to stay with my friend’s younger sister, who does not have a newborn. A week away from the Man makes me a little sad, because I always have more fun when he’s around…but we’re taking our own vacation, so it’s all good.

I just have to survive two more weeks! 2 years ago
