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.

Thursday gratitudes:
Today I am grateful for:
  • Having my eyes tested. It has been almost 3 years since my last eye test. I need new glasses, yaaaaay, then I will be able to see more clearly.
  • My health insurance fund which covered most of the cost of my new glasses. Thank you thank you.
  • A lovely conversation with my son in NSW aka Bee Man. His bees have entered the hive and are settling in nicely. He is so excited about having a bee hive. Awww bless him :-)
  • A visit to T in the newly cleaned and organised shop reveals that they are being more organised and methodical about how they deal with stock. Opening one box at a time, pricing it all, putting it on shelves or into stock. So much better than opening every box, cluttering up the place, trying to serve customers and throwing stock on shelves un-priced just to get it out of the way. It would appear they are respecting my work. Thank you thank you.
  • An early night.


Dreamdancer12 Getting on with it :)

So happy for you and your Bee Man

Glad they are respecting your work at the Shoppe. Will send light it stays orderly and happy :)

As to Bee Man’s budding success, how awesome!
