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.

play with my cat more

i try, but my cat hates me like nothing else.When i rescued her i was told she wasn’t ferrel and would love me in a couple of weeks, it’s been months now but she stil hides from me then struggles and claws me if i pick her up. She came with a friend and he cuddles and brings me spiders and everything. I think i must be doing something wrong * sob * :(


gorillagal3 Life is Good. really!

give it time

i have had a few feral cats in my lifetime. one needed 5 years, the other came around quicker. but don’t force yourself on them, let it be on thier terms. that’s a cat’s way. it’s great you took in a feral cat, bless you!
do you know anyone that can reiki? that helped both mine come around. the one that i had for 5 years, came around immediatly after one reike session. it impressed me enough to learn reiki, and i used it on cat #2, which came around faster than the first cat….. he’s only 6 years old now, and i still see improvements in him. he loves me, he is just unsure of other people and usually hides when they come over.

well she was only a kitten when she was found (apparently on a rubbish dump bless)so i dont think she was abused, but shes acting like im going to hit her or something so i thought the same thing. hopefully if i keep giving her bits of tuna she will trust me :)
