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.

Not leave the washing up

I only have a small kitchen, but I LOVE cooking! I have a terrible habit of using every pot, pan, plate, glass and piece of cutlery I own to produce mini gourmet feasts, and then leaving the washing up until the next day (ewww! I know!). Or else, I do the washing up, and create a drying rack full to Jenga like proportions, from which I carefully extract a single fork to use, but leave the rest alone until it actually starts falling off onto the floor (necessitating re-washing, bah!) I’ve decided its a much nicer feeling to walk into the kitchen in the morning and find the work tops & sink clear, and everything back in the cupboards and drawers where it belongs. So from now on, I’m going to make the effort to do the washing up if not immediately after eating, at least within the same 12 hours, there’s only one of me living here, how hard can it be!!? 7 years ago
