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.

some advice about cloth diapers

Seriously, you are dealing with yucky poop regardless if you use cloth or disposable. The only difference is that you are tossing things into a washer instead of the trash. Don’t let some poopy messes dissuade you from saving a ton of money and our landfill space. Human waste is NOT supposed to be in landfills. It belongs in the sewage system. The washer takes care of everything. Give an extra rinse and line-dry.

My son is almost 2, and he has NEVER had a diaper rash. Not even ONE.

I just started yesterday, but I think so far it’s worth doing. One thing I know for sure… he looks adorable in them! I can’t get enough of them. I keep showing people his little tushie that’s always a different color.

There’s been some wetness here and there, but I think I am still getting used to the fitting and tonight I gave him 2 inserts so he doesn’t leak like last night.


I want to:
