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.

How did I get here?

Growing up I remember my mom and my sister always gossipping…and I HATED it! I can’t believe that now I’m behaving the same way. I’ve gotten really bad about it at work especially. I know part of it is because they all do it so much and so it’s really hard to resist. But that’s no excuse and I know it. I also realize that a lot of it has to do with trying to make myself feel as if I’m perfect or above the same behavior and therefore, somehow better than other people. What I’ve lost sight of is how bad it makes me look and how untrustworthy other people may begin to find me because of it. I agree with many of the other posts that it makes me feel awful and angry about myself. I love the gossip bracelet idea. I’m going to give that a try.

Farming Future

My husband’s parents own a farm in Wisconsin that he would like to eventually move back to. He’s really interested in the agriculture end of things but I am much more into the idea of animal husbandry. I’ve just recently begun researching the idea of raising llamas there and still have a lot to learn. He would like to do organic farming and I’ve read that llama manure is great for this. I’m just beginning this quest and expect it to be several years before I’ll actually be able to do it. In the meantime I’d like to volunteer at a farm or facility that has llamas to see how much I can learn.
