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.

ValerieFrizzleBallroom dancing

So, when I was little, my mom put me in ballet. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed it, but I think I would’ve enjoyed ballroom dancing more. There are four different styles of dancing that you have to master, and let’s face it: it’s hot! After watching “Take the Lead”, I decided that if I ever have a kid, she’s gonna learn ballroom dancing. I need to learn ballroom dancing for my own satisfaction in life.

Update: I just registered for ballroom dancing lessons at my university, and my first class is tonight! I’m so very excited!! Fingers crossed I don’t make a complete fool out of myself! 22 months ago

OK, after three lessons, at least I can say that it makes sense. Too bad my feet and arms don’t quite get it yet. Maybe it will take a little more effort. 2 years ago

Randy1958Second dance class tomorrow

So I had my first ballroom dance group lesson and learned slow-slow-quick-quick (Jitterbug) and the Foxtrot. Not quite as difficult as I thought, but two hours was a good workout. 2 years ago

Randy1958Beginning Dance class

The local college had a couple of Ballroom Dance classes in the Fall. The Spring schedule will be posted next week so I’m hoping that they offer the beginning class again. It should be fun and great exercise. 3 years ago
