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.

This should motivate me.. I hope

Yesterday I got an email from my cousin asking if he could stay at our flat while visiting the upcoming Edinburgh Festival. He should be arriving in a few weeks and.. his mom happens to be a cleaning freak. So what?
I’m not.. but I do like to present a tidy house to any visitors that should come knocking on my door. I guess that’s what they call being “house proud”? Dunno.. anyway I plan to now really clean the house .. go through each room and just get it sorted for once.

.. and hopefully we can keep it that way too :)

I'm still working on it

I managed to clean our computer room on Friday. It was something I had meant to do for a long time but never got round doing.
So I just started tidying up and before I knew it most areas were sorted and clean.

Now I still need to sort out the book case..
Then moving on to next rooms. There’s SO much to do. My husband and I are both fairly messy and lazy, which is a bit of a problem. I imagine if everything could be sorted for once – we could try to maintain it.
