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.

Start my own business
Crafting as a stay-at-home-mom business

I really want to start my own craft (mostly crochet as that is my specialty) business, but im not sure where to start or how to go about it. Another thought, is to maybe open up a Yarn Crafters store in my hometown here, and have a sitting area for people (yes, men crochet and knit too.) to work on their projects, drink coffee and gab. I need some input. Help!

Crocheting it just so much more fun.

I like crocheting more.

Crocheting it just so much more fun.

I have to say that I really don’t like to knit. I totally prefer to crochet. Maybe I just don’t have the patience, or maybe I’m just a cop-out, but I LOVE TO CROCHET!

Get a gym membership (read all 2 entries…)
Goodlife Fitness

Since I was determined not to join a unisex gym as the men stare at you. I joined an all-ladies gym, with child-minding and it has by far been the most enjoyable, fullfilling experience of my life (other than having my son of course). But I highly recommend that all women out there who have low self-confidence to just go and give an all-ladies gym a try. I never though I could be one of those people who actually ENJOYED working out. I thought it was for crazy people. But it is so addictive. I love it, and everyone should own a gym membership.

Men judge you with their eyes

I decided i do not like going to a public gym. men judge you with their eyes. i dont feel comfortable there. so i think im going to try an all-womans gym.

see the northern lights
Calgary, Alberta

I live in an area that sees the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) on occasion, when the weather conditions are just right. They’re absolutely mystifying, they get you in a trance, like watching the licks of a campfire. More people should come to Canada just to see the light show.

Cat Toys

I made our cats some mouse toys. They are so cute! and the cat loves them. Very easy to make. I got the pattern from a crochet website. I have the pattern for those who want it.
