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.

toilet train my cat (read all 16 entries…)
buh bye week 7

today is day 6 on amber and the end of week 7 of toilet training. hello is getting more comfortable with the amber stage and her potty schedule is getting closer and closer to back on track. i have to stress putting your kitty on a feeding schedule during toilet training. it makes everything so much easier when you can predict what time she will need to go. also, when you introduce a new change, kitty will probably go off track but when she is back on track, it is a good indicator that she is comfortable with the change and is no longer hesitating or holding anything in.

i am continuing to reposition hello while in mid-elimination. she is going 100% on the disc now with 4 paws in the litter unless i reposition her and then she gets some through the hole into the toilet. she won’t ever assume the position on her own (front paws on the white seat, back paws on the same side of the hole behind the front paws). i’m going to have to get creative in teaching her how to do this on her own.

btw, i posted hello’s wish list which is full of lots of really modern cat stuff:


hello kitten has gotten 2 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
