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.

wembleyheadsPossum graduation

looking way more fierce than reality ;)

My first batch of baby possums have weaned and more than tripled in size. Last night they graduated to the next level—living in an outdoor cage! They had to move to another location for this, so they aren’t in my care anymore. Unexpectedly sad to see them go, but so happy they are thriving and movin’ on up! How exciting for them, to smell the outdoor smells, have more room to climb and run, get used to temperature changes. A whole new world :) 2 years ago


Turns out the squirrels fell ill and went home with an expert, so I picked up three baby possums instead. Feeding every 8 hours, via tube into stomach. Faster than bunnies, but tricky because possums wiggle and have really fast hands! Very… bitey! They yank at the tube, clamp their teeth, but when the warm food hits their bellies you can almost feel their sigh of contentment. Getting the hang of it. 2 years ago

wembleyheadsGetting two baby squirrels this weekend

Hopefully they will be more hardy than baby bunnies! Someone cut down a tree, and the two babies toppled out. The mother didn’t come back for them/find them/whatever the case may have been, so the stranded duo will need some tender care. 2 years ago

wembleyheadsTook a class two weeks ago

and already have been caring for two baby cottontails since Monday. They are precious, and exhausting. Unfortunately cottontails have about 75% mortality rate without their bunny-mamas. None from their litter are doing well (three are with the woman training me). I’m probably going to be learning a lesson on letting go soon :’( but at least if our souls bump into each other again someday, they’ll know deep down I loved them dearly. <3 Time to go nurse the bunnies! 2 years ago
