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.

MeRossyChanging my style

While I love smash, I still don’t have enough time to dedicate to scrap booking. Instead I have been making heart felt cards for people, which I’m enjoying a lotttt.

Though last winter I did finish a smash book, which looks awesome! 7 months ago

suejkMarch 23rd Crop

I scrapbooked at an all-day Crop on Saturday. I think I got about 12 pages done. I was not as productive as I’d hoped, but I got more than half of the Myrtle Beach pages done. 21 months ago

suejk1 Afternoon in February

I scrapbooked with a friend last Saturday afternoon. I got about another 8 pages done. I should go back and deal with my older scrapbooks that have bits and pieces left. I don’t really want to, but I think it would make me feel very good to get them completely finished.

Off to Myrtle Beach for March Break, so I’ll have lots to get done on March 23rd when I go to an all-day Crop! 22 months ago

suejk2 more scrapbook days

I scrapbooked 2 other days in January. Did another 20 pages! Am signing up for another all-day Crop in March and plan to fit in at least 2 days of scrapbooking in February.

I’m on a roll! 22 months ago

suejkLots done today

Scrapbooked for about 12 hours today, minus brief lunch and dinner break. I got 26 pages done! Woohoo! Feels awesome and now I feel like I want to get even more organized. I am off to an all-day crop on January 19th and it would be great to get another 20 done then! Tired but satisfied … Now to wind down for bed! 23 months ago

suejkBack at this goal

I have had this goal on my list for ages, but haven’t really updated it. I considered discarding it, but decided to attack it instead!

Yesterday I spent about 5 hours sorting, organizing, de-cluttering etc. in my scrapbook area. We moved into this house in March and I haven’t spent any time on my scrapbook area, so this felt really good!

I’ve also been planning what I’ll be scrapbooking on Friday at a friend’s house. I’ve got lots organized and plan to do a bit more today, including developing some pictures from Christmas. 23 months ago

MeRossyWithin this month perhaps?

Bah I want to do this soooo badly.

I visited Michael’s Craft store the other day and they have this product link called “*SMASH”. And I love it. Its all about scrapbooking by “smashing” things in. Momentos, quotes, ticket stubs, anything and EVERYTHING. Each book is themed and comes with a “Smashstick” Which is a nice pen on one end and a glue stick on the other. AMAZING. I bought the smashstick. A lot of it is just redic marked up stuff. Like I am not buying the book when I can make my own… but I really want the date stamper that has I think 12 different quotes you can add to it. Wow.

I have a monthish now of “free time” before I have any employment obligations, so maybe I’ll get some stuff done. I have all kinds of photos from my travels last year and camp and yeah.

Ahh the possibilities. But I also think this could take a while, because everypage I do is complicated… 2 years ago
