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.

PasadenaSueMy Cats love it!

I like the fountain and the sound of running water. The cats always have water to drink as well. The only downside is that it needs to be filled during the summer and I have to watch or mosquitos lay eggs in the fountain. That just means that I need to turn it on more often. 8 years ago

Any tips on where to get rocks, pots & a pump? 8 years ago

goodspeedI want to install a nice fountain

Hearing the sound of water falling is very soothing. Nice to have in a corner area of your house or the backyard. In my case I want to install something unique but practical. Terra cota types are nice.

Any tips?
