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.

*Cathy McDowell*Squirell Feeder

My bird feeder quickly became the squirells Restaurant. Hey, it’s fun watching them too. One time he slipped and fell. That was funny and it wasn’t long and he was back up at it again.

I probably should put some new seed in it. Maybe I should do that this evening. 7 years ago


this will be really important to have at our new house as we are worried we will miss all the birdies that we have around in the trees near our currnet house. Will also plant natives to encourage them in. 7 years ago

fugaleranyone have any ideas

i just went over our budget and we are overspending way too much. So what is the cheapest way to operate a birdfeeder? It’s not like I want to support a whole community of birds, I just think it would be fun to have one and to watch the birds come and visit. My toddler son is so observant and I think it would be fun to do together 7 years ago

kellgoTotally love mine

We hung it in the backyard and it’s so nice to see all the little birdies come out to feed. They aren’t afraid of our dog and they just sit up there and eat and eat! We hung it in a tree above some grassy, dirt area because they get that seed all over the place.
It is very theraputic and relaxing to watch them eat out there and you just can’t beat free natural entertainment.

I highly recommend this! 7 years ago

have acquired some bird seed mix. Just need to decide on the type of feeder I want and a position in the garden at the new house. 7 years ago

Kim NHummingbird Feeder

I have a beautiful hummingbird feeder outside my front window now. :) I’ll be watching for the little critters to come take a drink. :) :) 8 years ago

Kim NI haven't done this

I need to move somewhere else that has a place to put a bird feeder where I can enjoy it. Right now, I wouldn’t be able to see it. What’s the point? 9 years ago

pioneerspiritBut since we moved, we have yet to put it up! Also?

We adopted a cat since our move too. Our old cat never hunted, but this one is a real killer, we put a bell on her, but she still manages to leave little presents for us: rabbits, birds, moles, any advice on where best to put it up? We just unpacked the birdfeeder, had been dropping seed on the ground before that, until we noticed she’d promptly find a place to crouch and hide . . .

Any advice? Would love to attract birds, we have tons of song birds in our yard, maybe even put out birdhouses, but I want to make sure they stay safe. 9 years ago
