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.

post random questions daily and see if anyone plays with me and answers them :) (read all 101 entries…)
Your experiences with stereotypes and prejudice

What stereotypes are people most likely to apply to you [i.e. blonde, racial…]?
Does that stereotype actually apply to you in any way?


Cloudberry is a tomato plant with her roots nestled in rich compost.

good question

As a Jewish (well, mixed heritage) woman with a non-Jewish surname, I might confuse people with regard to their expectations.

I am still trying to figure out why I never clicked with Jewish men, as much as I found them interesting. I think they expected me to look or act a certain way. Some thought I was “too Jewish,” others…? Dunno. But I definitely – repeatedly – had the sense that they were not really getting to know the Inner Cloudberry. Meh. Their loss.

Non-Jewish men, I think, find me just a little exotic, but not threateningly so.

Todd Schoonover will miss all his 43T friends


I can’t say that I’ve ever considered you exotic or threatening, but since I’ve never met you in person, that may change someday.


I want to:
