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.

I finally got the rune site back online – is now live even if I still have a lot more articles to get online.

It will be done...

This is something that use to be so important to me that I let slip to the side time and time again. No more of that though. I’m not sure exactly when I’m going to start up on this one again, but it’ll be sometime in the next few months. Hopefully I’ll be able to set it up the way I’ve always dreamed of setting it up. No small time site but a huge site filled with every piece of information I can get my hands on. :)


I can’t believe the last time that I wrote an entry here it was 15 weeks ago! Shame on me! And an even bigger “shame on me” for not finding the time to really get my rune site back up and online.

The good news though, it seems as if my old site has finally been taken down. It’s only been online without my permission from my old ISP for 5+ years.

In the process...

Design ideas for the site have been put on hold for way too long. I’m not going to let that stop me anymore. The whole backend needs to be created so the site can be maintained with very little effort. After all it’s a side project and not something I have hours to put into. So I’m going to skip the web design phase on this one for the time being and get the administration side of this done first.
