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.

donna816heritage house

i purchased my second old house in 2001. since then i have worked on the committee to establish our neigbhorhood as the largest heritage designated neighborhood in all of ontario! whoo we have 1022 houses! all in the 100 year age bracket or thereabouts! love my house, just wish i could get passed all the hard core big expense items and get to the actual heritage restoration. i have also gotten benjamin moore designers to put together the third heritage paint pallett in all of canada! they studied our time period, and the colours are pulled from their main heritage pallett for the time period of 1895-1910 which is the majority of times built!

My husband and I are on our 4th house, 3rd of which is old. We’ve also renovated historic commercial buildings and even won an award for one. Old stuff is my passion… 8 years ago
