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.

Deer Troubles

I planned to weed when I got home today unfortunately, a fawn has bedded down in my rose bed right by the garage and appears to have a broken leg . We’ve seen it up and about with it’s mom recently so it’s not ‘too new’ to walk, the back right leg is bent at a funny angle and it’s surrounded by flies. Not good! I tried to shoo it toward the back yard at which point it stood, couldn’t put weight on the leg and plopped back down again. When I called animal control they said they’d only come if it was dead and that given time the Mother will either come to get her or it will expire at which point I should call back. Hating the idea of this fawn dying but not too sure what I could possibly do to help. If I give it water the city could cite me for feeding a wild animal. I’ll check back in an hour or two but in the mean time what do I do…?

This buck was hanging in our back yard about a week ago.
