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.

juneyinbecoming interested

I want to start doing it(making cloth diapers). We’ve been using fuzzi bunz on my son and it’s been good. I sometimes worry that the bulky diaper would affect his legs growing straight, but I think that’s just another crazy idea of mine. Anyway, I really want to start making my own because buying is kinda expensive and I think I can make it myself. Don’t know where to start, though. Any help is appreciated. 8 years ago

JennybennyHalf way there

I have been making diapers for awhile but just got interested in selling them.I had to explain to my brother in law that you actually can wash and reuse cloth diapers so there is a real need to educate as well. I have people ask me about them and I am in the proccess of getting business cards made up so I have something to give people. Where would I sell the diapers locally? Would you recomend find stores because I can’t find any that want to sell diapers. they don’t sell enough and tell me they are not going to be carrying them anymore because nobody buys them. But they don’t really know much about them I over heard someone tell a customer that you should soak them in bleach for a few days!!!Crazy.
Any advice would be appreciated. 8 years ago

prettymama29Cloth diapering is addictive...

But if there were ever good advice, it would be to focus on selling locally, then work towards an online store. It really helps to have close input on how your patterns are working, what people would like changed and what they love most about your designs. It keeps you inspired and gives you the motivation you need to be more creative. I’ve been sewing & selling diapers for 6 years now, and as a single work-at-home-mom, it’s been a God-send. HTH, feel free to ask any questions you might have. 9 years ago


The more time I spend cloth diapering my own son the more I want to make and sell my own. I have the patterns, I have the skill, I even have an online store! LOL

So what’s lacking? A damn sewing machine that works! I’ve gone through 2 already, 2, and neither have worked. Thats what I get for being broke and buying second hand machines at the thrift store. Arg!

If only someone on freecycle would take pitty on me and answer my request, but I doubt thats going to happen anytime soon. sigh9 years ago
