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.

Food & Drink Stuffs to Share with 43T (read all 57 entries…)
Have I mentioned I love food?

Well, I sat here trying to decide what type of goal this should be…

At first, I thought maybe a baking challenge. Since I began learning my way around a kitchen I have always gravitated toward baking. Cookies, cakes, pies, breads… MMM!! On the down side, no matter how good my intentions are, there’s no way I could guarantee I’d be able to bake something even once a week. Limitations suck so I decided to steer clear of challenge anything.

Then I thought a specific food pictures goal. My friends joke I have an unhealthy habit of photographing any meal if my camera is within reach. I can’t even rightly explain it but I simply love food and taking a picture of a perfect dish (or not so perfect) really pleases me (or motivates me to do better next time). This shouldn’t be a shock to anyone who’s followed me for any length of time but I like taking random pictures, LOL!

I recently retired/gave up on a try 43 new recipes goal when I abbreviated my list. Side bar: damn you buttongate! Okay, where was I? Ohh, I enjoyed that goal and we tried some interesting stuff. It was good but frankly not great and I need to start fresh.

What’s a girl to do?

So dear subscribers I figure I’ll use this goal for what ever the hell I feel like. Be it baking, cooking, meals, stories, pics, etc… Anything even remotely food related will unabashedly go here and I won’t have to categorize how it fits.

Huzzah for food freedom!!!


We actually registered the domain back in 2005 when contemplating world conquest. Now, it seems like pure folly!

How Cool

I have often thought about collecting the recipes that have been shared here on 43Things and making a real cookbook out of them.

Speaking of 43conquests, I happened to see another site that began with 43 but I can’t find it now. It was included in a list of sites that I could share whatever it was I was on to. I’ll have to track it down, but it wasn’t a 43 that I was familiar with and it wasn’t the standard add this api.

Found it, where you can bookmark sites. I checked and it doesn’t look like it’s yours. (You do own 9 different 43 sites based on my reverse lookup. I wonder what the other ones are.)
