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.

How to do the Buy Local Challenge

Definitely what I lean towards...

...for so many reasons… But in the long winter…. what do you do? The farmer’s markets are gone and I’m stuck with products from across the globe!

We’re really lucky here in that the market runs year round. It moves inside in the fall and winter.
The CSA box also runs through the year. In the winter there are a lot more root vegetables from earlier in the season along with some greens from greenhouses, but it’s all local and quite delicious.
Living in a very fertile farming valley definitely has benefits.

Awesome and makes me want to move! : )

Guess what????

I found an indoor farmer’s market about 15 minutes from home!!! Ha! I think the conversation here may have made me open my eyes a little wider!

That’s great!
I didn’t realize how lucky I was living here until a few years ago when I became a lot more conscious of all of the food around me that was growing in the fields. I’d see it and drive and bike by it, but wouldn’t realize that I could be eating it and helping out my neighbours as well.

Well...

turns out the “farmer’s market” just say the words on the front of the building. It’s just a little market with nothing local. I live no where near peru, yet that is where my pears are from…. Oh well…. the weather is warming up so the outdoor markets will return soon!

I think that the “buy local” and healthy food movements spread and that more people can have more healthy and local options for food. There is nothing better than an outdoor market with all sorts of fresh food around!
