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.

Exploring and enjoying!

March 20, 2012

I didn’t do any planting or gardening of any kind. I just relaxed by walking in the park and looking at all the little green things growing. I was surprised on how many little bushes looked full with foliage, as so many of them had tons of little leaves growing on them.

I found this lovely rock, that had moss growing on it, that I took it home. I love moss and any little plant that will grow on a rock, because I love plants and I doubly love rocks! I thought that rock would do lovely in my yard with my growing plants. I called it my First Day of Spring Stone.

I didn’t check my seeds as I kind of make it a morning routine but when I got home from taking my long walk at the park, but I did in enjoy my plants that are growing and blooming. Two of my pink hyacinths were blooming as well as more of Johnny Jump Ups were. There was one that had a lovely white little face on its purple bloom.

I can’t wait until to see wait to see what my little sleeping seedlings are doing. Are they waking up and sprouting yet?
