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.

ive set aside time almost everyday to do nothing but be creative and scream colors. ive been making a load of progress and im really proud of myself. the dream is still in a sort of fetal position but i dont worry about it dying inside me anymore. this ones coming out healthy and if i keep on like i have this work will be done before the month is out. and of course, we go back to the drawing board and do it all over again. thanks for the cheers.

ive had a lot of distractions lately. foolishness. today im going to shut everything and everyone out and cuddle with my brushes. i wont see my dreams crucified.

ive set up a shop on etsy and ive been devoting a lot of time to getting my work in order because before this i just didnt bother. undisciplined. i know that it will take a lot of patience and effort but im certain im on a right course with my life in making these choices to share a little bit of my truth with the world in the best way that i know how. im so excited about all the possibilities. good going me.



learning how to talk

ive been creative all my life and i never gave much attention to it. everyone always praised my ability but id just shrug it off. ive come to a point where i know i love painting and drawing and would like to find more time to do it. we all have a statement wed like to make in the world and thru this medium im convinced i can speak the loudest. i hope to make a change in someones life or their way of thinking but if not i know at least ill have made a big change in my own and that when all is finished ill be able to say i tried and used my best voice. thats that.
