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.

Buy rug and curtains

I went to Ikea yesterday and splurged on 3 pairs of orange curtains for the living room, 2 pairs of tan curtains for the dining room, a large dark natural rug for the living room and a small rug for beside my bed. I hemmed all the curtains last night and hung them and laid out the new rugs. It’s starting to look really great in here! 3 years ago

MollyByGollyThis weekend?

I will hope fully be receiving my federal refund tomorrow and I’d really like to go to Ikea this weekend. I need to get four curtain panels for the dining room, six panels for the living room, a big area rug for the living room and a few smaller rugs for various spots around the apartment. I’m really excited about this and can’t wait to go shopping for my re-vamped apartment! 3 years ago

MollyByGollyWaiting on my refund . . .

I’m going to use my tax refund to purchase an area rug for my living room and curtain panels for the dining room and living room. Can’t wait! 3 years ago
