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.

I can’t believe I did this. All because other family members came to visit and they stayed in my room.

Shelves and Walls

I’ve reorganized my small cubicle shelves and I’m looking towards repainting my walls a chocolatey brown one one with a mustard yellow or cafe au lait on the other three. I was thinking of coloring the door and frames black, but that might be too dark. I really want some brown, some deep colors to make my room cozy, and in doing this, I’ll have to take out the clutter and even scrapbook some things I just can’t throw away.

Half-way There!

Tidied it up a few days ago. Fixed up my dresser, but I need to redecorate. That’s a different goal, but my room looks better.

Company's Coming!

I had a friend stay at my place until she got her life back together. Eventhough she left yesterday, I have another relative coming tomorrow, and I removed so much stuff to the basement. I feel like I can breath! Now for some decorating ideas.

Made My Bed.

I made my bed the other day, and my dad cheered me for this! You know you’re a slob when….

Cluttered Room, Cluttered Mind

I have too much clutter. It’s not an adult’s room, eventhough I call myself one. I’d feel better about myself if my room were tidy and organized, especially if it had some style to it. It’s depressing looking at my room.
