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.

julietdhwoohooo!!!!! i've done it

finally… done, dusted, wedded & happy. & i’m back into painting… lovely jubbly x 7 years ago

julietdhat last i've started

after looking at a blank sheet of paper for a few weeks & drawing sketchy layouts i’ve FINALLY but brush to paper. i’ve got 7 tables of 17 done so far & it’s not looking too bad… 2 weeks to finish it… 7 years ago

julietdhwhat have i agreed to...??

My oldest friend is getting married & has asked me to paint her seating plan in the style of Winnie the Pooh’s 100 Aker Wood (yes that is how you spell ‘aker’ – I speant hours looking for an image with the word ‘acre’). They’re getting married in September & I haven’t started as I’m feeling a little intimidated. Each table will be named after an important place in their lives (their new house, their schools, their parents’ houses, their university towns etc) & they need to be represented on the seating plan. Now I did GSCE art but have merely dabbled since then in crafty bits & pieces. Wish me luck – I’m going to need it!! 7 years ago
