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.

StephenPlant and Lawn recycling

Now that I am composting, this is lessening my garbage output. It was not that high even before, but I think this will save at least 20 garbage cans per year from having to be carried to the recycling center or the landfill not to mention a trip to home depot to buy fertilizer. Every little bit counts and more people doing it means less CO2 to transport, less money spent for maintenance and a more beautiful world for everyone! 2 years ago

StephenI love my electric bill.

Since replacing my refrigerator last year and using more power strips that shut off when those electronic power supplies are not being used, my electric bill went from an average of $70 a month to $35 a month. 50% savings makes me very very happy. Water use is down too, but that is more due to the rains that have helped my lawn this year, but I also mulch which helps trap the moisture as well as reduce the need for fertilizer. Still haven’t started composting yet, the composting Saturday seminars always are conflicting with my weekends at the Train Museum.
