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.

OK, here’s the story. I got a church job! I am a pianist, and for the job I’ll be able to do most of it from the piano, but hymns will need to be done from the organ. I can already play hymns on the organ just fine, but here’s the thing: the piano there is crappy. The organ has some problems too, but at least it’s in tune, and is generally a better instrument. So I hope to be able to transition to doing some more complex things on the organ, and to begin to use the pedals. Today I went to the music store and bought an organ method book (which I didn’t really wind up needing), and several books of sacred organ music. I went to the church for the first time today, having recently gotten the building key, and started messing around with the organ for the first time. It took me a while just to figure out how to turn it on, ha! But I managed to learn a couple of simple tunes, and start practicing one that had pedals with it. The thing that I find most difficult with that is actually just remembering NOT to play the bottom line with the left hand. I had no idea that would be what was hard! The other thing I find difficult is reaching outside of the little center area of the pedal keyboard, without having to hold on, which obviously I can’t do if I’m playing. Guess I just need to talk to an organist about how to do that.

It’s a lot of fun, in general; I look forward to the next practice time! 3 years ago
