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.

Congrats on your engagement! I’m sure she will find “the one dress” soon! It’s a special day, so she wants to be absolutely sure she makes the right choice :) 6 months ago

marycath06Updates

It’s been over a year since I posted in this goal (or any goal for that matter). I have a new blog name and domain – It’s now called Creative Seeker at http://www.creativeseeker.com. I’ve been working on the web design for the past few months, and I am pleased with how it has turned out so far. I took a writing break, then successfully posted for two weeks in a row, but I seem to have hit a road block this week and last week. I have several in-progress posts that I can’t seem to finish. I need to sit down and finish whatever it is, be it the draft or the accompanying photos. Once that happens I will be able to schedule 3 simultaneous posts and be good for a couple weeks. If I can plan to work on it Thursday night and nothing else, I can probably still get a post published for this week. I’ll update again soon :) 21 months ago

marycath06Officially up and running!

I want to say that my intention with this goal was to have a “launch” of my blog, but I’ve realized that growing a blog is an ongoing process. I will always be creating new content and promoting my posts though various social media, trying to share my posts with everyone who would be interested. I’ll be constantly improving the design, categorization, and functionality so if I wait for it to be perfect, I could never consider this goal done. It’s looking great so far and I’ve been writing about once a week. I’m still tweaking the header, but the web design is presentable. If you’re interested in checking out my lifestyle blog, Creative Seeker, the link is http://www.creativeseeker.com. Marking as done! 21 months ago


marycath06decided on a name finally!

I have officially changed the name from mar’contraire to Mare Boutique. I changed my shop name on Etsy, so username is now mareboutique and I bought the domain http://www.mareboutique.com and redirected it to my current etsy store. This way, I can have business cards printed, but I won’t have to reprint or redesign when I upgrade to an ecommerce site.

I am starting from scratch, so I’m working on new copy and photography for my items that I have already made and only listing the items when they are ready to go public.

I have been working on sketches for the new branding. Once I finally decide on this, I can create a banner to match the new identity of Mare Boutique.

Getting there, slowly but surely. 21 months ago
