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.

Life Happens and Things Change

Don’t want to do the group home with children anymore. Want to do one with adult women. Something to help them better themselves and get off the system. I have to think this through and come up with a plan. It may be a few years coming, but I’m going to make it work!

Moving Forward

Been purchasing small items as needed. There are several things that will have to take place before this is a reality. For instance,
entire yard trees cut off house
washer and dryer
window in bathroom
faucet in tub
fire alarm system
painted inside
tenants moved

And It Begins Again

Met with someone that’s going to guide me through this process. There are some things that need to be done so I am going to slowly get them done. I don’t know how long Leslie will be in the home, but when she leaves I want a smooth transistion to the group home. Taking it weekly to get everything done.
