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.

dinabeth In love with a very special person

Work in my garden daily to grow fruit and veges, herbs and ornamental flowers and trees (read all 39 entries…)
In the last month ......

I’ve been going through my old pot plants and finally putting some of my plants for the garden out. Some carnations – that really should have died while I was overseas, some lupins and a couple of alyssums that have come up from seed; I’ve repotted a few tree seedlings till I’m ready to put them in the ground; I’ve also been transplanting seedlings from one section of the garden to another – mostly lettuces, though I have a lot of red onion seedlings that need to be transferred too, and some sweet peas coming up in the front garden needed to be moved.

I’ve been watering where needed, around the tree garden, the citrus trees and keeping water up to the new seedlings in the vege patch. All is looking good so far. My son has helped by spending time watering the stone fruit trees. One day I’ll look into having a sprinkler system put in (though with water being limited as it is, no town water, at least hand watering allows me to keep tabs on what’s being used and how much on what).



I want to:
