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.

Lorraine JamesOne Woman Show

After seeing a few one person shows during the Winnipeg Fringe Festival, I would like to write one myself then publish it as my autobiography. Just an idea. 17 months ago

withdrawnI'd like to share my story

I have tried to write my autobiography for so long. Several years, I believe. But every time I start writing on it, I immediately delete what I have written. I’d like to share my story, the story about how I have struggled. Living with three mental conditions was never easy. I have no clue what stops me from writing this. 2 years ago

kmom2468Adding Pictures!

I will probably publish this as a password protected PDF file, but that is still a long ways off. Still pretty anecdotal and choppy; however, the words are slowly getting put down on paper. Choppy and chaotic, but down in electronic bits is better than beautiful and elegant and locked up in my head, I think. Anyway, added some scans of drawings that my granddaughter did and some photos from various periods of my life. Slow going, but the project is moving along. 3 years ago

kmom2468The project is ballooning

I wrote an outline and started some areas. Right now it looks like just a bunch of anecdotes. And every time I look at it, I think of something else I want to add, so the outline is growing faster than the actual writing! At this rate, it will take me several years to complete! Still, it is fun remembering some of the wonderful people and experiences in my life, and it is like therapy to finally lay to rest some of the not so good things. 3 years ago

kmom2468Is it hormones?

Or maybe it’s just that I have time to do this now that I’m done with school for the moment. But I started this while on vacation this week. 3 years ago

Lorraine JamesMore & More Possible

If I can write 750 words a day, then I can write my autobiography. I’m doing a speech that’ll get me to talk about what it’s like being an actor. I can do this. 3 years ago
