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.

Kristina WHi

Thanks for the feedback. I deliberately left a few questions vague in order to allow people to interpret them as they want, but I definitely understand the points you’ve made.

By ‘highest qualification’ I do mean education yes. By ‘other commitments’ I mean voluntary work, parenting, etc. While many people might not have an answer for ‘job’, they might still do lots of volunteer work or be stay-at-home parents. It’s basically a category for anything that might not be strictly categorised as a paying job (e.g. student).

For kinds of areas, I left that deliberately open as I don’t want to lead people to answer in certain ways. I was thinking in terms of public view, and whether the places are abandoned, highly controlled parks, pavements, but for example I didn’t even think about swamps and forests.

Yes, the whole questionnaire is about guerilla gardening, which I’ve defined as ‘any gardening done on land that isn’t yours, without permission’, so that encompasses any form of gardening.

I’m not sure I can make changes to my survey as it’s been published but I’ll try to incorporate some of your suggestions and make the whole survey a bit clearer.

I’d very much like to read your answers to the questions as well if you have some time to spare :-) 2 months ago

Hi there, I’m a student at the university of Edinburgh and I’m doing some research on the motivations and experiences of guerilla gardening for my masters dissertation.

If you have a few minutes to spare, would you mind answering some questions in my survey?

Any answers given would be a great help. Thank you!

Hi! Would you be able/interested in answering a survey on guerilla gardening? I'm writing about it for my dissertation. I haven't completed it yet but I'm trying to gage how many people might want to answer questions :-) 2 months ago

Kristina WSlow progress...

So I have not gone back to my initial weight (Thankfully) but I have been going up and down a couple of kilos since before Xmas. I think that’s mostly due to stress. I’m making this a priority again. My plan is to pretty much continue what I was doing before and avoid binge-eating chocolates and other stress-related eating. Maybe next time I’m stressed I’ll make some plain popcorn to chew on. 6 months ago

I dropped this goal for a year (eek) and just took it up again about a month ago. Since then I’ve lost about 5 kilos, and I want to lose 8 more!

I’m more determined this time, myfitnesspal is great :) So is general research. 10 months ago
