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.

PasadenaSue Today, I will be honest and clear in all my communication.

appreciate what I have (read all 27 entries…)
Front patio

Yes, I have written about my front yard before and now that I have a new larger patio out front, I am taking advantage of the nice weather to sit out front in the morning. I installed my small fountain to provide some white noise. The flagpole is back so I can fly an assortment of flags (depending upon my mood), and the table and chairs provide a nice place to sit. This morning I trimmed some of the roses which are blooming. And the jasmine has gone wild so the air smells wonderful! The mountains are covered in a slight haze but still provide a nice backdrop.

Coffee, music, computer, and the cats all combine to make a relaxing morning. This is what I have been working towards for quite a while. :)


PasadenaSue has gotten 4 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
