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.

Guess what?!

We bought a greenhouse! While the snow was melting outside I had lots of seeds sprouting in our kitchen just waiting to enter the greenhouse. Now they are all out except from some herbs (sage, thyme, basil, oregano, cilantro) that I use when cooking. In the greenhouse there is now tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, spaghetti squash, pumpkin, a kumquat three, red bell peppers, more basil and parsley. So exciting!

Not forgotten this

It’s been a long time since I added this goal, but it’s been on my mind now and then, and now that the spring is entering I’ve just started this. I have a very nice smelling menta on my right in the window frame, bathed in sun light:) I’ve bought basilicum and parsley seeds, and a seedbox. I just need some good soil and I’m ready!

Veggies outside my bedroom window?

Gosh, that’s one of my sweet, supressed dreams; to able to grab a fresh and juicy “self made” tomato by just stretching your arm out the window, like a mini breakfast in bed. I would have carrots, squash, onions, tomatoes, parsley, thyme… well those to begin with. I guess I will have to wait until spring though. It’s not so suitable to start digging in your garden with all this permafrost.
