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.

Merestarted with Peppers

Started with two Capsicum( bell peper)plants. One died at a neighbours despite having a fabulous pepper on it. Guess it did not take well to the new environment. One has survived and seems to be producing flowers.

So keen to have it survive. Job stress high so I want my plants to thrive and grow. 18 months ago

svbevanA lot of progress

Since I set this objective I’ve created a vegetable patch and grown vegetables on it for two seasons. The first year was very good with great onions and runner beans, plus a few others. The second year I lost interest a little and grew mainly onions and potatoes, which didnt do too well – but the weather here in the UK has not been great. 1 year ago

spratlasMaybe not worth it

We spent the whole summer reclaiming a garden from the back yard. We worked a lot of hours, and preserved and ate a lot of things that we grew. It felt good, but in the end I think it might have been just as well to buy fresh vegetables at the farmer’s market. The time and money it cost didn’t really bring me a reciprocal amount of joy. Most of my yard was taken up, and I always was yelling at the dogs to be careful. And I couldn’t play as much because there was always something to be done. I think next year I am leaving this one to the professionals. 2 years ago
