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.

still no offers

After 2 price drops. And now we’re in the holidays, which makes it that much harder.

We made the cut for the HGTV show, but still have no idea when it will air, so that’s not been the marketing push I had hoped for.

Just want my boys here. Oh, and the mortgage off of ours backs would be nice too.

might be

on HGTV – filming this weekend.

Open house scheduled for Mid-November. Hope we don’t need it.

Realtor talking about a price drop. Don’t wanna do it. Our house, in the market it’s in – should be able to sell for what we’re asking.

But I want my boys with me. I miss them so much.



be ready to go on the market this weekend.

The man is very unhappy about it. I don’t know what to do to help him. I don’t want to sell the house, but I’m okay about leaving Denver. He doesn’t want to leave Denver, let alone sell the house. And he’s really lost without a job. He knows it has to be done, but he’s definitely not happy about it.

But it’s one more step. And it’s in the way it has to go.


comes this weekend. Tiler here today. Realtor here today. Moving forward. Not going to get the money we want, but we won’t lose either. And it will sell. We have HUGE rooms, beautiful hardwoods, awesome neighborhood, good schools. It will sell.

got lots more done

but still so much more to do! It’s so very overwhelming.

I don't really

want to sell my house. It’s become a necessity.

So I want it to be as pain-free as possible.

And I have a TON of work to do to get it ready.
