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.

Garage is done!

We organized the garage. It is so nice now. It makes such a difference now that we know where all the tools are!

Garage got some work

Matt and I decided that we are going to have a garage sale in order to get some stuff OUT OF HERE. We started to create a pile in the garage and I have a feeling it is going to be a good one. We have some good stuff to sell and the rest we donate!

In the process, the garage got some organization.


So we have cleaning people that come every other week and the day before they come, I am always in a frenzy to throw things in containers and get things picked up so they don’t have to clean AROUND my craziness.

My downstairs craft area is SO messed up right now and I have to clean out my spare room in two weeks so someone can stay in there. AHHHH!

Help me!

I have a toddler and my husband and I both work from home. Needless to say, there are piles everywhere and I just don’t know what to do sometimes!
