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.

verity96 is auditioning for a project

Read the Bible
come on!!!

Ever have some books that you just try to read but then put them down, books that you don’t even find that bad, just for some reason never seem to finish?
Well, the bible is that sort of book for me. I have managed to get the the end of genesis, but that is it. That was months ago and i have read loads of books since.
Lets manage to finish reading the bible soon!


A lot of the bible is tedious

There’s no way to sugar coat that one, but it’s sort of like fishing. A lot of waiting for something to happen, but there are a lot of amazingly profound, comical, inspiring, and disgusting moments which make the Bible worth the slog. Unfortunately the only way to encounter these passages is to read the whole thing. Something to note, the Pentateuch is considerably older than the rest of the bible. It was oral tradition and many of the elements of modern story-telling (Introduction, Rising Action, Climax, Falling Action, Denouement) which just don’t exist. As we get closer to our time, the stories become richer with more complex literary structure. They become much easier and enjoyable to read, so hang in there.
