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.

Yah…gonna have to begin again…for
some reason, my kitteh was under the
impression that the herb potting stood
for kitteh litter…then she just took
over and staked claim over the whole
damn thing…strange kitteh…naughty
kitteh! She really does look so cute
sleeping there though…

Oregano down

I planted my oregano now, so next is to get the
other herbs. I’m also getting lavender if I can
find any left.


heh, yah. I got oregano plants so far.
Now for the rest.


I managed to find a few herbs. Now to plant them.

NOOOOO! Bad kitty! Herb garden is not the litter pan!!!

Heh, as the title suggests, my kitty made my last
batch her litter pan and killed all my herbs. I’m
hoping to successfully grow a herb garden this year.
I’m also going to plant a food garden me thinks…

We’ll see how it goes.
