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.

Teddy Bears finally come out of the closet!!

There’s been quite a few Teddy Bears living (or not) in cupboards at my parents house for the past few years and despite my Mother’s intent to “do something with them”, they’ve continued to hibernate in the cupboards! Needless to say, I was amazed and absolutely thrilled that Mum suggested we somehow donate them to children.

I wasted no time in sourcing happy recipients.

Today I took 20 brand new Limited Edition Teddy Bears to the Brisbane Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation as a donation to the many children who are bed-ridden there for months at a time.

The Foundation hold a Christmas in July event for the children each year and will now be giving each child a Teddy Bear! :-D

Wonderful!

I am imagining the smiles on those children’s faces. I hope they will be reflected on your own and your mother’s face too :)
