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.

Finally, this labor of love is ready for consumption!

Just as phenomenal as I remember.

Work and cost intensive but so worth it.

Amazing! 21 months ago

buffalosnowangelDreaming of NOLA...

The above photo is the one I’m attempting to make

Z starts his new job next week and I’ve been trying to come up with something special that we can do to celebrate; and what better way to celebrate than with the best sandwich we’ve ever eaten: the muffuletta.

We first ate this in New Orleans over the summer. We made a stopover there for a break during an extremely long road trip for my school visitations and I’d wanted to go there for two things: a beignet and a muffuletta.

We actually ended up buying a muffuletta on our way out of town and throwing it in the cooler; then eating it the next day in Clemson (SC). The second we both took a bite, we went into a food coma. Neither of us to this day can recall what happened between our first bites and our last. For all we knew, we could have gone the wrong way or ended up in a ditch. (Thankfully we didn’t.)

Anyways, we both fell in love. We talked about it for a week straight to anyone who would listen, and we still talk about it. So it seems only fitting that this becomes the celebratory dish.

It’s going to be relatively costly and very labor intensive as I have to make the bread, the olive salad and the sandwich all from scratch but, what the heck, it’s worth it.

When I asked what he thought about having this for our celebratory dinner, the only thing Z had to say was this: “sandwichgasm”

I think I can take that as a yes.

Here’s a photo of the muffuletta we had from New Orleans. It was insanely messy but so incredibly delicious. (I apologize for the messy image of the inside of my car. We lived there for eight days so it’s not that bad all things considered!)2 years ago
