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.

kpettAll those little nagging projects . . .

that I’ve been okay not doing until now, are now done. The house is ready. But since I didn’t want to sell the house in the first place, I’m bummed. 6 years ago

kpettThis kinda goes along with cleaning and decluttering

But there’s a few bigger projects I need to do to get everything ready. 6 years ago

change everythingwe're not actively trying to sell anymore

I still should do those tasks, but not becuase we’re looking to sell the house this season. Maybe in a few years… 7 years ago

change everythinggetting the house ready: a list

a few things that need to be done:

new curtain upstairs
mirror and lights in downstairs bathroom
carpet glued on stairs
rake and new wood chips
flowers and curb appeal
clean out garage
clean out linen closet
clean out bedroom closet
random junk removal/storage

We did do one thing today…bought a dresser that replaces a very juvenile looking secretary and helps our closet appear less cluttered. 7 years ago

jimmyetherFinally sold and moved!

Renovating and selling our house was extremely taxing and stressful, but we did it! Actually, we reovated the entire house over the last 6 years we were there, but in the last two months before selling, it was marathon time to finish up all the lose ends and do several unexpected repairs (found by the inspector). I did all the work myself, and I figure after cost we ended up making about $50-60k. So yeah, MORE than worth all the pain.

Everyone was so impressed with our work (real estate agents, inspectors, the buyer, etc.) that it actually has me considering “flipping” houses at some point. As a result of all this, we just moved into our dream house a few weeks ago. Awesome. 8 years ago
