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.

Two was the ticket to play

I bought two yorkie puppy brothers 5 days ago and they have given me so much happiness and fun playtime. We take at least 10 outdoor play runs a day which includes finding fun sticks to chew and interesting obstacles to face. (They have each ran headlong into the swimming pool and I have had to jump in to save them…brrrr as well as saving them when they decided to visit and yap at two very pissed off horses) They are a blast and I miss our playtime when they have to take a nap.

Help me get my mojo back

I confess, I’m a bonafide workaholic. I think I have forgotten how to play…and that’s just not living life in my book. I remember fun. There just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day to get all the business put to bed so I can have fun. I am probably going to sound like that commercial”Calgon, take me away” but being a wife, mother, and business owner there just isn’t time for fun anymore. My biggest fun lately was catching glimpses of the movie “Christine” that my daughter and two friends were watching as I was making dinner. SAD

LadySlipper has gotten 15 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
