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.

Lynnaii should stop procrastinating

Daily: Reflect on 5 things for which I'm grateful. (read all 12 entries…)

I am so very grateful for:

~ a family friend who volunteered to help me move and helped me assemble my desk.
~ a new friend who is very kind and helpful, as well as enthusiastic about hanging out.
~ an internet writer friend randomly messaged me tonight after many months and said he missed me. That was cute.
~ friends I can feel comfortable talking to.
~ friends who trust me to call me when they need to talk, even if we’re not incredibly close.
~ frozen food.
~ open classrooms with drafting tables (even if it wasn’t the better ones).
~ helpful teachers.
~ affordable food.
~ the fact that there is a Trader Joe’s very close to my new place. Now I just have to figure out how to bus there.


I’ve heard good things about Trader Joe’s, but I’ve never been in a state where I was near one! I remember one being featured on the Food Network once and I thought they looked really neat! They might actually make grocery shopping fun… :)

Well the next time you get the chance, do so!

To be honest, the first time I walked into one, I called a friend and went, “I don’t see what the big deal is.”

Haha…wow did I have to rescind that statement!


I want to:
