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.

BarbaryBlue Don't mistake kindness for weakness

build a studio (read all 2 entries…)
I have been broke...

so I haven’t really gotten around to this. I moved things around so I can paint in my bedroom. I made a workspace by cutting down the closet door and using the dog’s crate and my nightstand as legs. I shoved my smaller “craft” desk into my closet (i share my daughter’s closet for hanging clothes) and then moved in my art cabinet. It sounds like it would be cluttered but I pushed my bed up against one wall and really there is plenty of space. I have a folding table that I can open up for really big projects or sewing. It’s working for the moment…but a “real” studio is still percolating.

Great beginning:)

Starting with what you have, from where you are is a micro-movement forward! Been there.
I know how tough it can be to have no studio space. Now you’re on your wayyyy:))
