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.

Write my parents the most loving love letter ever!

LeezelVeterans Day 2012

I haven’t written the letter, but I did manage to tell my emotionally-constipated dad how proud I am of him. Seriously, this guy can be a grouch!
My husband and I took my parents out to dinner last night and I told everybody that if it weren’t for dad being a “lifer” in the Navy, I don’t know where we would be today. He was injured during his service and it enabled him to apply for a free, undergrad college education in the state of California for me and my sister, something I completely took for granted in my younger years (I was never too good in school, so I didn’t get into a UC, but could have, and should have taken complete advantage of this).
He was surprised and humbled at my words, and I could tell that he was close to tears as he felt as if his hard work came to some redemption. 2 years ago
