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.

I smiled at my completion of my money tree.
I laughed at my dog’s reaction after getting
trimmed.(She wasn’t happy about the process,

of fur on the floor…I coulda’ made a whole
other dog lol.

taking photographs.

scent on the wind in my direction. 4 years ago

LandseerAmazing what a little thing can do

I smiled when I decided to go for a walk
and found that my fruit trees have begun
to produce fruit. I just had to take
pictures to document this occasion. In
my post for growing my own fruit trees, I
posted the pear picture. In this post, I’m
posting the plum picture. 4 years ago

LandseerWell, at least it was nice for a moment...

I did get to have a laugh at a guy
who was trying to chase a bird out
of his house…he smashed his clock
in the process, backed up into the
chandelier, fell over the chair, and
knocked everything with the broom…

The air was very blue around him… 4 years ago

LandseerI like snow

Watching the snow falling and being out in it

After last yesterday and last night, I was happy
and smiled when I looked outside at the sun. My
dogs were relaxing finally. It was also warm outside.
I smiled at that.

I laughed at an e-mail I received today from a friend.
Apparently a town in Germany is upset with some British
tourists stealing the signs…lmao…and it’s funny to
see there is actually a town called F** Germany. 5 years ago

LandseerPreeeeseeeent butts!

hehehe. Anyone who has animals understand this one.
I laughed and smiled at my dogs wanting their
“butt scratch.” In unison they walked over, turned,
and backed up, standing waiting. It gets tough for
animals to reach their lower back area. Didn’t you
know that’s what humans are for…well, that, food,
and treats…heh.

Dogs love butt scratches
