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.

Treehouse turning into an 'Under-a-tree-house"

The garden doesn’t really have any trees big enough to put a platform in, so the plan is developing a little to fit the circumstances. I am building a deck under a willow tree and putting a cabin on that. I will plant shrubs around it too. Over time the tree branches will drape over the cabin and make it feel a bit like it is in the tree.

Hopefully getting a treehouse tree soon !

Having completed my move out of London, have hopefully finally found somewhere that I have totally fallen for, that has a potential treehouse tree in the garden. Making my plans & looking forward to it.

Funky treehouse

Saw this earlier in the summer when I went to visit a garden in Oxfordshire – gorgeous

The reason I want a treehouse is...

.. it feels so calm to be away from everything in a den in the branches… yet it’s also energising to be up high in the air next to a living tree
