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.

jacketpocketSeeds are sown.

My parents helped me dig and plant this garden. I am pictured here with my dad. Photo credit goes to my mom.

It contains: cucumber, red pepper, cherry tomato and beefsteak tomato plants; beets; radishes; green onions; and marigold plants to keep the pests away.

I can’t wait to watch them grow! 18 months ago

13ettyYay!!! Finally!!!

This year I finally discovered the world of gardening. Better late than never, huh? It’s a very exciting subject to explore…

So far, there’s cilantro, basil, chives, strawberries, and spinach that Tim and I started from seed—the cilantro seems to be growing the fastest of the bunch.

We also have a meyer lemon tree, purple cayenne pepper plant, and sampaquita flower/plant that we bought as ‘starter plants.’

Lastly, I have also been experimenting with regrowing plants from ‘kitchen scraps’ (green onions seem to have a very high success rate… updates on regrowing garlic and kale coming soon…) 19 months ago

My fiancé and I got him at the Durham Farmer’s Market in North Carolina. The farmer/vendor told us that it can grow 4’ – 6’ tall—holy moly, that’s a whole lot of heat! 19 months ago
