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.

Progress.

Well Tippy just came back from the brink of death (1 week vet stay, meds, not eating) and is now more energetic and peppy than I’ve seen her in a couple years! I’ve taken her for a couple walks since then, which have been fun. Scribbles loves to play with her fishie toys, and Oliver for the most part doesn’t live in the basement anymore.



Cat condo

I made my cats a scratching post/climber thing which apparently they love (I returned to school so I havent gotten to see them play on it yet).



Scribbles

We have a new cat now, named Scribbles! She’s adorable and looks quite a bit like Ollie (tuxedo markings). Ollie is very interested but very scared. We’re taking the introductions slowly. It has enabled me to spend more time with both of them.



Hooray!

The cat is finally starting to come around more. He only runs away from my sister. I’ve been walking the dog more too.



Untitled

Walked the dog yesterday with my boyfriend. Unfortunately I cannot play with the cat because he forgot me when I went off to school for 3 months and now won’t come around me all the time.

I try to do this as much as possible, but there is always room for improvement!
