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.

Walk to the water

TangerineRoseTook a walk to the water

This has been on my list for too long! As I’m between jobs at the moment, I do have plenty of time to be able to achieve some goals.
We have had some very temperamental weather over the last six months, I only wanted to take this walk on a day I was confident would not rain on me.

I found my way to the park and little beach quite easily. On the way to the park I found some local shops and a gourmet cafe. I had a peaceful time watching sitting by the water on my own with nobody around. A nice way to spend a Wednesday. I’ve almost forgotten what work is! :) 2 years ago

TangerineRoseGetting Cold

I should have done this over summer while we had daylight savings.
It’s been pretty cold lately (by our local standards:).
Might do this on a weekend morning. Hope to do it soonish, as I’m
sure there will be a couple of photo opportunities :) 3 years ago
