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.

Show's over people

I couldn’t handle it anymore, I need to be able to change my clothes in my bedroom without being worried about giving my neighbors a show. Spent about $15 on each window so $30 all together. They look okay and now my husband can get a little better sleep during the day. Now I only need curtains for my living and dining room. I will try to make those.

He likes the curtains

Cal got to see his curtains today and he said they are cool. Yeah!!!

One room down

Got Cal’s curtains done. I however did not do much, Em did all the work. Also I found some material like I would like to make some more curtains out of, think I will buy it.

Got some material

I went with my step son today and he picked out the material and I am going to sew some curtains. He picked out Cars and solid orange, they will be so cute. Now I need material for all the other rooms of the house.
