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.

mochomitoariesMy First Children's Book

I finally finished my First Children’s Book.
Right now it’s available through Createspace – but it will also be available through Amazon very soon – in about 3 days they said.

It’s Titled: Birdies Traveling Circus by Alex Perez

It’s small – but cute and it has coloring pages in the back for the young reader.

I’m looking forward to starting my next children’s book – I already have the idea and half of it written – it’s the drawing that takes a little bit longer. 4 weeks ago

mochomitoariesalmost done with my first children's book

I’m almost done illustrating my book – it’s already written – I finished that about 2 months ago – but it has taken me a long time to illustrate it – I thought it would take me faster – but I was wrong.. haha – learned something new – how long it actually takes to illustrate….

I’m almost done – Hopefully It should be done by July and available on Amazon and other sites online by the end of July. I stopped working on it for a little bit because my baby Bird Aries passed away – and I was just so upset – I couldn’t handle it…

I’m dedicating this book to my sweet Aries…. I wish she could have seen it… but still…. it’s almost done. 2 months ago

mochomitoariesExited - just started writing it

I just started writing my first Children’s book. I also have an idea of how I’m going to illustrate it. I’m not that good of an artists – but I think I can do a decent job to self publish it independently.

Fatboyslimone step closer?

I met a New Zealand illustrator over a year ago who runs courses on children’s illustrations. I signed up to one of her courses and after she saw some of my drawings said she would be happy for me to sign up to her illustration agency. So I now have an agent! One step closer? 9 months ago

ooamaimomoooDifficulties...

..I realize that I don’t have a problem coming up with characters—and I don’t have problems writing stories in general.. but children’s stories are something I really struggle with! Maybe I should read more children’s stories and rekindle my child-like wonder.. Or maybe I’m just not around children often enough.

But, even still, this is something I would really love to do. Even if I only end up making one copy to read to my (future) kids. 16 months ago
