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.

list one thing every day that was positive (read all 20 entries…)
Picked up Amber

From her house at 10am, whereby we drove into London with the aim of going to Brent Cross Shopping centre to buy a few xmas bits and bobs.

Can you believe that we got there only to be greeted by a sign saying ‘welcome, we open at 12 midday’ we were not impressed as it was only 10:40am and the idea of hanging in a car park didn’t exactly inspire us with thoughts of how cool, so we jumped back into the motor and headed back up the A41 to pick up the A1M.It was at this moment I remembered that there is this place called the Harlequin centre in Watford, full of shops and all that – 20 minutes later, after significant queues to enter the car park there we were.

1st stop was M&S whereby we perused various apparel. Apparently I have zero fashion sense, so yup, we didn’t buy anything there. Next stop was GAP. I like GAP its the kinda shop that makes me feel a little younger than what I am. Picked up a nice couple of scarves. One for Dad for xmas and one for me, for now. Next stop was at a Cookie stall whereby we bought a Banana Toffee Muffin, followed by a stop at Thorntons for some nice yummy chocolates. I was pleased to see there was a John Lewis there too, so we mooched around there for a while, picking up some wrapping paper and a few zillion ideas for new home furnishings. Apparently I need to replace everything I own and use the funds from that Money tree I have that produces 50 pound notes…Kids! After a few more stop offs for things like cards, a present + flowers for Eda, some food for dinner, we headed on home to put up the xmas tree.

She (thats Amber not the cats mother) loves doing all that stuff so i was happy to get on and play mum putting the pies and pre roast spuds in the oven, whilst nibbling on some of those yum Thorntons chocs washed down with Strawberry Smoothie. :D

Thanks, it was a lovely day.

She’s a bit of a cheeky little moo, but we had a lot of fun today just me and her, no horrid big brother to antagonise her and get me at it! and yes, I think I’m slowly geting in to that festive swing…:D
