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.

go to more festivals (read all 2 entries…)

It’s a free music festival in the local park and is next week. So can’t wait to go to my second music festival this year!

go to more festivals (read all 2 entries…)

Recently went for the day to this local music festival and absolutely loved it. I went with my husband and kids and met some friends there who were camping for 2 days. Wish our friends had been more appreciative of us being there though; they didn’t invite us to their tent or cook or offer anything to us while we were there. They were good with our kids though. Basically we went to spend some time with them, and live the festival experience with them, but really didn’t feel like they wanted us there.
However we still enjoyed it and are planning to go camping there next year for the weekend, whether or not our friends are there!

go camping (read all 2 entries…)

In two weeks time I am going camping with a group of mums and all our kids for two nights. Should be fun! Hope it doesn’t rain – it would be awful if it was like it is today, thunderstorms etc. Wouldn’t be a good experience at all.
Looking forward then to planning more camping trips and trying to persuade my husband to come.
