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.

plant a garden (read all 39 entries…)

Today, we pulled up 5 of my radishes, and let me tell you, they are phantastic!
The leaves are 12cm long and up to 8cm wide, the radish roots in a full, lush dark red, snow white inside and they are twice the size of those from the supermarket. Only difference: they don’t taste like water! My radishes are mild, until the very last moment, and then they are nice’n’spicy!

I am so proud of my efforts and the success!


dirgon needs to start updating his 43Things entries more often.


My family is about to move into a new house in a couple of weeks out in the country. It will be the first chance that I have had to plan a garden in about 20 years. We are looking forward to it next Spring.

I wish you as much fun as we had planning, building, planting and enjoying ours! Planting a garden from nothing into our 30 sqm oasis has been such a great experience for me. Hopefully, we’ll have a bigger space in our next home. I seriously need a real veg patch… ;o))

yebw Preparing for arrival of puppy!!

My radishes

Were looking good, but I wasn’t sure if they were ready. You’ve instilled me with hope.

I pulled one up to see how big it was, if you’re careful, you can re-plant it if it’s not big enough, yet.
The leaves are no indicator. There was still one that was tiny, even though the leaves were just as big as the other radish’s.
And I am glad if I can instill you with hope! That’s the nicest thing anyone has said to me all day!

redbandita has gotten 6 cheers on this entry.
