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.

littlelamblostI need a hideaway.

My room is functional, but it doesn’t suit me. The last time I bought any new furniture or did any decorating I was going for a modern, white, elegant vibe, when to be honest, I’m an earth tones and organised chaos kind of person.

I tried to create the space that I thought I should want, not what I really want and I’ve realised since then that more than what flows or makes sense I need to fill my room with things I like and enjoy. I’m not aiming for a particular style or feel, I just want a warm, cosy place I can hideaway from the world.

I need new flooring and paint desperately, because neither have being changed up in twenty years and you can tell. I’d love a new bed, and don’t like my current desk, so a second hand one would be awesome. Then there’s all the other little things I’ve found online and on pinterest that claim to be super cheap, but when you try and recreate them in a country that isn’t American nine times out of ten they end up super expensive. It has the potential to get super expensive, but I’m not in a position to be spending a lot of money.

Hopefully I can do everything I want and have a space I enjoy without breaking the bank. Fingers crossed. 6 months ago

Art FellowOnly one more thing to do and I'm done

So I’ve moved back home since repairs were being done including the repainting of walls. Now, the walls have a fresh coat of paint on them so they are looking beautiful. I changed rooms since moving back in so I no longer have new curtains or any curtains as a matter of fact, since we had to take them off during repairs. Once this is done, I can put a big tick next to this goal and I shall think of an appropriate way of celebrating. 19 months ago

adoretNew cupboard

I sold a chair I had in my room as a part of my “painting and selling a piece of furniture” goal. With the space it freed up I finally got space for a cupboard that has been living in my garage for probably half a year. It does a serious make-over but for now I need the space. I now finally have a space for my folders and this will free up a lot of space in my other cupboard. I am excited for some majoy organizing/purging this weekend! 23 months ago

adoretStarted purging..

I know I have too much crap in my room. I do have some problem with grtting rid of stuff and I do know that. But there are things like my painting supplies, scrapbooking supplies and knitting supplies that I do use, but not regularly. So I just do not know what to do with that stuff. But I was able to throw some stuff out and that makes me happy. I did a bit rearranging of the furniture as well. I am still not quite satisfied but it is getting there :) 2 years ago
