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.

Turn my bedroom into my haven

TazI currently have

boxes and bags everywhere thanks to the post Christmas chuck it in Mum’s room clear up.
I’m still undecided whether to attempt to rip out the built in cupboards so to open out the room or not. I know if I do it’s going to take a lot of work to tidy it all up again and I’d either have to buy wardrobes or build new fitted ones on the other wall. 11 months ago

TazI ripped out half of my bedroom carpet today

I don’t have the money to replace it but it’s so gross I’d rather live with just bare floor boards. 13 months ago

TazI have a huge pile

of “work” paperwork that is no longer needed or useful but I can’t put in the recycling so I guess one evening this summer it will fuel my garden fire.
That will be yet another box emptied at last. 18 months ago

TazI spent all day today

clearing out my bedroom and I’m being ruthless. If I don’t love it or use it it’s going in either the charity box or the bin. y bedroom looks huge already and I’m only about halfway through.
Unfortunately once I’ve cleared it I will be filling it with Big one’s bedroom so that I can get her room decorated. At least once her room is done all her things will go back and my room will be clear again. :D 21 months ago

TazSpent an hour or so this afternoon

moving a few piles around my room and actually managed to fill 2 bin bags and move out several boxes to their rightful places. I can see more floor! 22 months ago

TazBoy was off school sick

today so that meant I had to stay home so I used the time to clear a large patch of my bedroom floor which I can now see! :) 23 months ago

TazStep one

was clearing out the magazines. That’s done so now I’m setting myself the next goal of clearing the corner by the window. 2 years ago
