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.

Katylady123Fun group project!

2 of my friends and I made honey almond oatmeal soap. We were a little scared of working with the lye, but, we were careful and I could do this by myself next time. We read the directions from a book and followed a recipe from the internet and now we have 25 lovely bars drying for a few weeks! If you do this, leave plenty of time for the lye solution to cool. You can expect to make a day of it! 16 months ago

Katylady123F Scott Fitzgerald

I liked it much better than his first novel and I sensed his maturity. Just this week I read an article about how he used material from his wife Zelda’s diaries and she accused him of plagerism! I guess I am reading his works because I had a teacher in HS who used to tear up when she talked about him. WTF? Haha 21 months ago

The yarn, a pattern, and, best of all, a friend to coach me! I am practicing my knitting with some leftover yarn to prepare. It is happening! 21 months ago

Katylady123My Guardian Angel

Last week my friend Gloria sent me an email about meditating and asking your guardian angel to reveal his/her name to you. So, I meditated and was very still and specific in my thoughts, and, what a surprise! The name CYNTHIA popped into my head! I don’t know anybody with that name, so I guess that was my angel revealing herself to me! Thanks Cynthia! 21 months ago

Katylady123What, no Dickens?

Everyone should read “A Tale of Two Cities” before they die (IMHO)
If you don’t cry at the end…you aren’t human!
Seriously, it is a great story and an early example of an historical novel. Give it a shot :) 21 months ago
