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.

getting closer

so the kitchen has been repainted, including cupboards and tiles. we couldn’t afford new cabinets but we’ve done has made a huge difference. Few bits left to be done that we’re saving for including new sink and taps, new floor and getting the work surfaces replaced/recovered.
all the little bits left in the living room have been finished off.
The last bedroom has been finished and is now a cool place to hang out with a comfy sofa bed, the computer and our library of books, cds and dvds.
Next is the upstairs and downstairs hallway and the staircase. They’re being started this week.
That only leaves the garden, dining room and possibly we may redo the bathroom.

I feel like the end is in sight!!

the story so far...

3 finished bedrooms, an almorst finished bathroom and a building site.
Trying to do everything ourselves which takes time especially with us both working full time.
Starting from the top and working our way down.
Currently stripping the wallpaper in the upstairs hallway. Horrified to find the ceiling is wallpapered as well and underneath there is dark turquoise paint :(
