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.

All I want in this world...

... is to sing like Michael McDonald. Is that so much to ask?

My walk to school might be a good time to get some singing in. I walk through highway/woodland every day, twice on some days. It’d also force me to be really effective with my breathing, since I walk at a pretty swift pace.

Feeling more confident

I’ve gotta say: Joni Mitchell songs are GREAT voice training. I have been working on playing and singing “Free Man in Paris”, which goes ALL over the place in terms of pitch – you have to hit notes right on the button, because they’re so central to whatever quirky chord you’re playing.

I am starting to feel more confident about my singing. Though I’ve gotta say that I hadn’t really realized before how crucial a warm-up is. Wow. What a difference!

Singing, shower-style!

I’ve been singing for my whole life – I come from a musical family, my parents both are / have been professional musicians and getting together to “jam” is a relatively common thing. Blood harmonies are amazing – I can usually pick out a harmony and sing it with no problem.

What I want to work on is singing solo – being able to carry a song, improving my pitch and range. I want to be able to really get “under” lower notes, and hit high notes without losing tone and accuracy. If I can do all of that and still engage listeners emotionally, I will be extremely happy.
