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.

GetThereGo big or go home!

I may have jumped in WAY over my head on this goal, but I am loving it! My indoor sow veggies are doing well (looks like I’ll have a ton of zucchini, butternut, tomato, and onion… wish those peppers would come up though) and this week I’m prepping my raised beds :) I’m so pumped! 4 months ago

littleandfierceCommunity Garden Plot

My city has several community garden plots. Ever since I discovered them I’ve been a bit smitten. This year I think that I’m finally going to rent a plot! I can’t get one until the first of April (I’m in Alaska, so this makes sense), but as soon as I can I’m going to put down my $35. That just seems amazing to me—only $35! Now that I’ve decided I want to do this, the next step will be to visit my local Cooperative Extension to learn more about vegetable gardening up here. 7 months ago

In_focus (Andia)Container gardening

I think I will do this in containers. I also need to make a nice design that protects my little planned crop from the plump squirrels that operate like an unruly, furry, street gang. Last year when I planted a few tomato plants they destroyed them. Pulling off the fruit eating a bite off of each tomato. Wasteful beasts. 16 months ago

I registered a field to grow some vegetable in my apartment community, but I never have any experience. Please give me some suggestions. 16 months ago

landlover13Veggies

I’m interested in plants and herbs, and their vast effects on the body. I’d like to grow my own garden with vegetables and herbs, free from pesticides, and so that I may share the benefits of my garden in a healthy and comprehensive way with myself and those in my life. 20 months ago
