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.

Triniprincess ...it was good, whilse it lasted!

I love...

Orchids! ... I want one so bad, I’m just afraid they’ll die.

My favourite local flower is hibiscus though.

BeautifulDay I wasn't older yet, I wasn't wise I guess

They do well in humidity. My friend had one (in a very dry climate) that didn’t flower for a year. Then she started getting nose bleeds so she bought a humidifier and it started blooming again. Trinidad is humid?

It is sad when you can’t get them to flower though. I know from experience.

Triniprincess ...it was good, whilse it lasted!

It depends on the time of year. We’re now going into our rainy season so I’m guessing now would be perfect time to get one. Maybe I should just bit the bullet and do it?

I know…and I can’t take that sadness if it dies or just doesn’t bloom. Someone also told me they easily catch viruses that can’t be cured as with other plants you can just cut that part of the plant off. Ugh.
