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.

Learn to knit (read all 8 entries…)

I finished one scarf several days ago and I started knitting a second one. I found out that I messed up on the 2×2 ribbing on the first scarf, but I got the hang of it on the second one I’m knitting. I really like the way 2×2 ribbing looks like. I’m planning to knit one more scarf after I’m done with the second one. I already know who I’m giving the scarves too and I can’t wait to give it to them! When I find out if someone else is coming to visit during the holidays, then I may end up knitting another scarf! It’s very exciting!!! I got some new knitting books and I love looking at other cool stuff to knit! I need to learn all those other knitting techniques though (increase, decrease, etc.).

Thanks! I’ve been reading your knitting entries and it looks like you’re making quick progress. Good Luck!

Knitting books rule

You can just browse through them all night long, pondering what you’d like to learn how to make.


I love looking through my knitting books. I can spend many hours in the bookstore just looking through their knitting books too.
