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.

J-FlowerWinter cut back

Time for the winter cut back, a bit late this year due to the mild weather letting everything keep flowering into November but the weather has turned now so time to get it all tidied up. Every year though I forget which plants get cut back and in what way so will have to get hold of my mum to tell me how to do it AGAIN. This year I swear I will write it down so that next year I can do it by myself :-) 13 months ago

J-FlowerGrannys garden

After a couple of weekes of not being able to do it because I was to scared to leave the house by myself I managed to get Robbie to take me down to grans so that I could get on with the stuff I needed to do in her garden. I planted some pretty flowers, did some weeding and put up strawberry netting for the baby climbers that I planted to climb up. All the flowers that I planted last time have established really well and the garden is looking great which made me feel really good because I could see the difference that I am making. Still a way to go but hopefully it will be a lovely place for her and grandad to go and relax outside. Felt like shit when I got home from all the panicking it caused me to go over there but from a gardening point of view two thumbs up. 15 months ago


This will have to wait until the summer, but I am finally in a place in my life where gardening is something I want to do. Very badly. 15 months ago

Did loads in my garden today because I finally got some soil. So planted all my sweet peas into bigger pots, re-potted all my baby trees and made some pretty flower desplays. Very much enjoyed myself and my garden is half looking finished which is excellent because I am hoping to have a bbq in the next few days. Going over to my granny in-laws to do her garden in two days and will be out again in mine tomorrow so yay for this goal 17 months ago

My mom grew up on a farm. She told me that my grandfather grew his own tobacco, coffee, and cacao plants. She remembers making chocolate from the cacao beans. I want to learn how to grow things from my mom. She has quite a green thumb. And I’d like this to be something we do together. 2 years ago

pharmjoA little flat garden

It’s looking like i’ll reside in flats/apartments for the forseeable future so I’ve decided to not let it hold me back from gardening! I’ve purchased a great book: ‘the virgin gardener’ by Laetitia Maklouf and it’s just little ideas and projects of how to grow plants and things in a small space. I havent decided on my first project yet but i’m excited just reading about them! :D 2 years ago

giloshThis is the year, man. You're doing this one this year.

Start with the plant-a-month kit you got for Christmas. Think of plants the way you think of pets- try and care about them that much, not just as non-entities. Start with the flowers, then maybe move on to vegetables in the summer. Get ready for the day you have your own place and you’ll be the one gardening, and not your mom. 2 years ago
