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.

They find me.

Its usually wild birds, our house is like a magnet for sick,tired and needy wild birds, we end up with several throughout the year in our care.

In July 2008 I had one of the best experiences of my life when I had the priviledge of having to hand-rear a newborn female Blackbird named ‘Bill’ for 3 weeks. I became her mother after she fell out of her nest at only 9 days old, and wow did I get possessive and maternal over her! She was about to die when she was found but a miracle happened and against the odds I managed to rear her into a beautiful full grown bird before she went never to return.


I adore animals, so much nicer than than humans. In animals you know what to expect, in animals you can trust.
I will care for those in pain and in need of love.
