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.

knit enough pairs of socks so I can wear hand-knitted ones every day! (read all 7 entries…)
End of January - bored

So not only can I not finish anything (other than Z-bear’s coat!), I just don’t have the drive to do anything right now.

Projects – WIP:
  • Trying to use some of the materials I have, so I started crocheting… something. Beats me what it is, but it was a blanket pattern. I think it’s going to be a placemat. I hate crochet.
  • That darn sock. I got 1/2-way through the heel, and I just ran out of steam. I need to pick this back up, but it’s giving me a headache.
  • Another use-up-what-I-have-but-don’t-like-working-with project. It’s supposed to be a blanket/pad-type thing for the kids to sleep on. Since they (well, girl-cat) like laying on my knitting projects so much and I don’t like this yarn, they’re getting their own. I will probably frog the scarf I made out the the yarn earlier to make it wider. It’s just arm-knit, so I have no issues repurposing it.

Projects – forthcoming:
I have nothing planned, really. I can’t find a knit pattern I like for the blanket I want to do. I bought the yarn with an arm-knitting project in mind, so I may not have enough, anyway. I found a crochet project I liked the looks of, but when I tried to make a smaller version of it for practice, I decided I can’t stand crochet. Which is kind of sad, and not only because it leaves me with 12 balls of yarn and no project.

KaliTime Camaralzman is knitting and crocheting like a mad woman. Argh!

Pattern Diving

Go diving on Ravelry for random patterns. That’s how my queue got so long. Hope this helps.

Bwah-ha-ha

I have about 17 tabs on my tablet opened to Ravelry patterns at any given time, and I’ve completed, like, 3 projects total. I love Ravery.

If interested, I’m Kyniska on there. Feel free to send friend requests!

As I scroll down my feed, just about every single one of your posts/comments makes me laugh aloud. For real.

Thank you for being rad.

I hope that’s to me, because I’m saying thanks!

I do try to put a little absurdity into every day life, ‘cause it’s more fun that way.

Yes, you!

I agree. It makes me happy when I come across folks with a similar sense of humor.


Alsandera has gotten 2 cheers on this entry.
