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.

Such a huge

surprise this weekend :D I was deciding on where to take a trip to at midterm and a wonderful friend from Paris booked me a trip (flights and hotel all paid for) back to Paris. Surprises are fabulous!

A lovely couple....

of days with my two daughters in Donegal :) My youngest daughter made me laugh until i hurt….she is so funny and loving. She was “swimming” in the hotel pool (as the Donegal weather was so wet and wild we spent an hour or two inside) when she started screaming “Mummy look! Hannah’s legs are fixed!”
Em….. NO! They’re not! but whoohoo!!!
We had such good fun up round Glencolmcille and Slieve League (scary in that weather :O)
Smile, smile, smile.


I am so lucky....

Thank You.

i got home from Austria to find a copy of “The Gargoyle” waiting for me – I think i know who sent this ;) THANK YOU!!! Also two beautiful butterfly cards sent by TG….and a lovely message in particular from The Warrior Queen :) I have such very good friends her on 43….thank you for thinking about me even when i’m not around. You all made me smile :D


Something really lovely

Thank You

A Surprise Package :)

Arrived today (or yesterday as it is now). It was a book with a note saying: “Dear…..
All the time I was reading this book, I was thinking of you – not entirely sure why! Nonetheless, i thought you should have a copy….”

the book is called “13, Rue Therese” by Elena Mauli Shapiro and is set in Paris. I’ve decided to keep it for February :)

Thank You so much my Dear, thoughtful and gorgeous friend…you make me smile and help me remember what a wonderful place the world really is. :)
