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.

Destash and otherwise put my yarn hoard to good use (read all 12 entries…)

Woohoo! I’m now working on two more projects that will help me use up the yarn stash. One is a semi-angel project for a swap I’m in, a crazyfuzzy purse; and the other is a shawl and wristwarmer set I’m trading someone for a tote bag full of beachy goodies. I started to organize my yarn the other day, too, so that the acrylic stuff that will someday get used for Warm Up America afghans is all in one place, etc., but I didn’t get very far before I had a friend come over and interrupt. (I had to sew the trim onto his Faire pants. ;))

These are actually knit projects, for once. No more hairpin lace. The hairpin lace shawl I was doing is halted at the moment because the recipient turned out to be kind of dishonest … but someday I may finish that shawl anyway, and do, er, something with it.

In any case, progress is being made. Yay! :D



I want to:
