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.

S.E.June 3

Cleaned two different cupboards and one shelf area with my sister. Over the weekend I shook out and washed the curtains in the dining room, as well as removed the cobwebs and dusted the curtain rods. Oh – and I cleaned off and organized the stuff on top of the microwave and cleaned out the bottom of one of the kitchen cupboards.

I finally have everything planned out in a two-week time frame. : ) 5 years ago


Things aren’t going quite as planned, but I did clean the corner by the front door so I can put my worm compost bin there. The closet in the corner still needs to be cleaned out, though.

I’ll do more cleaning this weekend. I can probably get the whole house clean by the 22nd even though I’m starting a week late. 5 years ago


Massive spring cleaning planned for May 8 – 22.
