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.

DanadanadanaHere's my actual view.

Well, about 1/3 of the view at least.
The light’s not great, and the fog is burning off quickly. Finally, some sun! 4 years ago

DanadanadanaWell, here I am

in my little apartment with the nice view.

Now I just have to make it suitable.

I already made some little planter boxes for the balcony- they’re rustic, but functional. I took down all the “old lady” paintings that the woman who owns the apartment put up. They’re hidden int he closet for the moment.

Next task is to make some sort of shelving/side tables, a TV stand and maybe a nice bench to put in front of the big window. I seriously need storage, especially shelving, so now I guess I just need to design a few pieces to fit the room. 4 years ago

DanadanadanaIf I take the in-town place

THIS will be the view (pretty much). (Note the balcony rail looks exactly like this, the view looks pretty close. I think this person lived either at the same place or somewhere very near.)

See, the problem is… when there’s a view like that available, it;s hard to settle for a place that only has a view of the back of the neighbour’s gravel driveway :-( Even if the apartment itself is nicer. 4 years ago

DanadanadanaLooked at 2 places yesterday, roughly the same rent/ extra expenses for each.

So the choice is: The tiny place with the awesome view downtown or the bigger place with zero view a few km from town?

The tiny place has not-great style inside (a bit late 80s early 90s, would require some effort to overcome), the slightly bigger place has good potential to be modern/funky, and seems more spacious because of the high ceilings.

Since I only have acquaintances in the new town, not real friends yet, I think I may need to be living in the older style, but convenient place with the killer view, for social reasons! 4 years ago

Timid MagickLeaving home again...

first I need to keep my job. Then I need to find someplace about $400 that takes my dog and no one smokes. Of course never going to find anyplace like that without a roommate(s).
I like being a loner, having to share is difficult for me. 7 years ago
