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.

LadyThaomiIt sprouted!

I planted it a week later and the first sprout has started coming up out of the soil. I’ll post pix when it gets big enough to look like something. They make such lovely house plants and best of all they make food :) 2 years ago

LadyThaomiIn the potty

I got my pot, painted it, named it (Spotty the potty, planted it, and now the waiting… The purpose of this is a lovely house plant but my kids planted one in a dish to be transplanted to a bucket to grow actual potatoes i n the house. I’ll keep the progress on that updated too. :-) 2 years ago

LadyThaomiSo much for that

My potato was a dud. I’ve got a new one rooting and in the meantime I got a pot and soil. Today I paint the pot. I’m glad I had that set back cuz I would have ended up with my beautiful plant in a boring pot. 2 years ago

LadyThaomiIt begins...

I am going to buy soil and a pot today, hopefully my potato isn’t too far gone from procrastination to grow now. It’s all shrively. 2 years ago
