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.

I’m back in Brisbane. So I need to find a writing spot in the old haunt!
Always struggled a bit over here, but Script Frenzy starts on the weekend so I need to get sorted!

Into the city tomorrow :] 2 years ago

JodieSparkesWell I'm

Off into the city today. Investigating the library in the city and finding a wee coffee shop to enjoy.
Let’s have a look see, eh? 2 years ago

JodieSparkesNew city, new spot.

In a new city, for me, it’s important I find my new writing spots. I have more than one, but for now, it’s time to focus on finding the first.
I’ve got a few possible cafes lined up and plenty of lovely outdoor locations to try!

It’s also an excellent opportunity to explore the amazing new city I call home!
