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.

lynnorajeanThis mornings garden

The advent of tiny blossoms from the grape hyacinth and equally minisule baby pink lillies of the valley! The difference of one day amazes during spring. 7 years ago

lynnorajeanIn today's garden

More daffodils, pansies, violas, snapdragons, plus buds on the orchids, fluffy dandilions, and tulips like lipstick, butter, peppermint candy and tangerine ones that look as if each has a candle lit inside. Also the quince has pinklemonade blossoms on every arching branch. Tulip magnolias blooms shamelessly across the mini quad outside my office window. Has there ever been a more perfect spring? 7 years ago

Daffodils, Pansies, Flowering Quince, Snap Dragons, and a couple of hearty little dandelions! 7 years ago

lynnorajeanWatch the garden die... sleep

The garden is in a state of rest… and restlessness. Here in North Carolina we have not had much of a winter. Some of the plants are shooting buds, and some plants are finally dying back from our long unending autumn. It is an amazing site. What will triumph? What will fade away for a couple of season? The birds and squirrels are all fat and active. What will this season mean for them? No telling if this is a fluke or effects of global warming? We wait, and we watch… hopefully we remember. 7 years ago


The beans have little flowers on them now! They are gorgeous deep purple flowers… it is so exciting. Our front yard has been planted with wildflower seeds, and some of the flowers are blooming. If it’s pretty and appreciated, it isn’t a weed. 8 years ago
