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.

~Actually get out there and do something – like its not going to take care of itself


have emptied busy lizzie bags and planted some money tree cuttings

Sweet peas

Tomorrow hoping to cut the sweetpeas down to a couple of inches and then leave them.

My uncle said that this does the ground good,


Had some branches cut of the tree in the garden as one had broken off and was hanging loose

makes place look a lot lighter

while the man was doing that – I trimmed the climbers I have hiding my house – maybe I want them to hide me – but today I have cut back the clematis, roses, climbing fuschia ? honeysuckle and a white plant that I thought was wisteria but maybe it isn’t.

May be I don’t need to hide so much


Lots of sweet peas


Fence not up – but planted some sedums a lupin
looks better – may get some more lupins


Need to start by putting a fence up

Dulicinea has gotten 28 cheers on this goal.
