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.

Jannike trying to do small kind acts

Read 24 books (I have a list) (read all 2 entries…)
Not any 24 books, but a special list of books

I am a bookcrosser, but somehow there is a pile of “forgotten” books that never is getting to be read. They are probably good books and I want to read them,(at least I wanted to when I brought them home..) but they are not as tempting as other books that I bring home from the BookCrossing meetups or borrow at the library (or sometimes also buy). Some of them are quite heavy and some are in other languages than my own, that takes more energy and effort.
But still, there was a reason hat I chose them in the first place.
I have decided to read them all in 2012 and have calculated that I have to read 22 pages a day the whole year to get through all the books.
Right now (January 9th) it is going very well, I am reading more than the 22 pages a day. (That is good, because the book I have started now is really a very demanding read, I might have to settle for less then 22 pages some days.)


Jannike has gotten 3 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
