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.

Lost WayfarerA set completion date: Canna's birthday - August 27, 2012

March 24, 2012

I worked on it for about a half an hour, before my hand got tired and I quit for the night. I can’t believe how bulky it has gotten from all that I have done so far. It will be lovely once it is down.

I was thinking it would be lovely to have it done by Canna’s birthday on August 27th, kind of a tribute to his lovely life. I really miss that big Orange monster.

So my completion date I am striving for is August 27, 2012. 2 years ago

Lost WayfarerA few stitches at a time

March 23, 2012

I did a couple of stitches after I got down untangling the last of three skeins of yarn. It wasn’t much, but at least it was something. Of course, I will work on it more and more as the days go on. 2 years ago

Lost WayfarerFound it!

March 22, 2012

I found my G crochet hook! You wouldn’t believe where it was. It was on my night stand beside my Bible. I found it when I went to move it to put my laptop. I must have put it there so I wouldn’t lose it.

So, I can start crocheting a row starting Friday, March 23, 2012. Now, I just have to get in a routine of working on it a little bit each day, regardless how warm it gets. It is only going to get done if I work on it, and not finding excuses on why I haven’t been working on it.

Onward, Ho! 2 years ago

Lost WayfarerNo "G" crochet hook yet

March 21, 2012

I didn’t find it behind my bed or under my bed. I have no idea where it is. I think it was a G hook, so I might have to buy another one, because I know I don’t have another one that size. I only used a bigger hook, because it is a 3 strand blanket and I felt it would work better then the one I usually use, which is a blue metal size J (its smaller then the size G)

If I don’t find it by Friday, March 23, I might go buy one at Walmart, because I can get one pretty cheap. 2 years ago

Lost WayfarerLOL, if it isn't one thing, it is another!

March 20, 2012

Gah! I lost my hook that I was working on this blanket with. I think it was a G hook. I really have to start documenting these things in a little notebook. A notebook that will laid down what type of hook or needle I was using, what is the name of the stitch, as well as a cope of the pattern (so if I ever lose it, I will have it there) as well as the name of the yarn.

I didn’t get a chance to check behind my bed, which if it came out of the blanket, it might have went there.

Guess what I will be doing when I work on this goal tomorrow? LOL2 years ago

Lost WayfarerThis is a slow and sad goal.

March 19, 2012

I have neglected this project for so long, regardless over the winter I have worked on it, and then only to allow it to lay at the foot of my bed, just like Canna did. Since it is getting warmer, I had to move the blanket off my bed last night and get all the tangled yarn together and find the crochet hook that fell out of the weaving of the blanket.

I plan of working on a row of it tomorrow late at night, once I have working on my other goals. 2 years ago
