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.

learn lampwork glass. (read all 7 entries…)
AAAHHH! now, why now!

I no longer have studio space prospects available to me. Money is tight, and going to get way tighter over the coming month then likely disappear all together come newyears day.

I’m looking at job hunting these days and have a few ideas on some likely candidates.

But most of my time is going to go into this Script frenzy that is just a little over 24 hours away and I’m doing times five.

Then What do I see, that between the 8th and 15th of april there are two classes in the area that I could sign up for. One is lamp work glass with a renowned expert, and one is a stained glass class. The stained glass class is a hundred bucks, I could swing it if I really wanted to, and I’m waiting for a reply with more detail on the lampwork class. I may just have to do that and to hell with the money and time constraints.

But if it runs over 150 and they offer it in the early mornings on work days only then I might have to fold and walk away from that. Optimum would be to get the promise of a job in the next few weeks and relieve that worry, then juggle time to get the slot for both classes open and the money to do them. Then pull it off without burning myself out while attempting script frenzy times five.
