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.

In 2012 I'm a gonna make that backyard my bitch! (read all 17 entries…)
A lot of cleaning and re arranging and re potting

today. Nothing earth shattering, but it gave me a chance to take inventory of what I have and what I might do with it . . . use it or toss it mostly.

I have a hummingbird feeder outside my office window which faces to the street; however, there is a hummingbird that is always in the back yard by the water fall at the fish pond. He/She drinks from the water fall, but I had yet to put up a himmingbird feeder near the pond.

Over Christmas, my friend Rob was given a hummingbird gift basket by one of his clients. It was a gift that was given to her and she regifted it to him and he regifted it to me. This is where it belonged!!! (at my house)

I opened it today. It is awesome. It has a hummingbird feeder, nectar, a hummingbird windchime, a hummingbird seed mix (seeds that you plant to attract hummingbirds) and a pretty nice book about hummingbirds in general. (Types of hummingbirds, how to attract them etc)

Come on little hummingbird . . . tell your friends about my backyard!!!


HippieChick2 has gotten 5 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
