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.

sporadic success is better than none

i’ve been much better at realising my ideas recently.
– i followed up an XMAS idea and created a dozen little stocking decorations – some to keep some to give away
– i finally got around to creating that birthday card for a friend
– i made my love’s valentines card and he asked if i’d bought it so that was a success :0)
– i made my mum’s mothers day card
– i decided to create a little embroidery and did it. off the top of my head. wow. and its cute.
- i painted an Eostre egg – with a hare, a leafy vine, some runes and a quotation.

so it’s not too regualr, but i am finding the confidence to try!

glove monster

i made a glove monster on halloween. he is wonkey and cute, and im very proud. :0)

pebble characters and beach mobile

we went to the seaside last sunday with friends, and it was the best day-trip there i’ve ever had! i made zen pebble towers, and doodled some characters. we walked along the shore, under clifs and just after high tide, collecting driftwood. now, a week later, i’ve taken driftwood, shells, a pebble and a feather and made a hanging for the bathroom. i wonder if 3 strands wouldn’t have been better than 1, but never mind, i had fun :0)
