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 had an interesting dream last night,

following my supper of gherkin, blue stilton cheese and a bag of pickled onion flavour Monster Munch.

I was walking across desolate moors, and a thick mist was rising. In the distance I could hear a faint bleating, so I started running towards the sound. The mist got thicker, and I could barely see 6 inches in front of me. I tripped and fell over a pile of dishes and plates. On closer inspection it turned out to be Mother’s best china, in the middle of which there was what looked like an airplane ticket. The bleating grew louder, and as I sat there on that misty moor, surrounded by Mother’s china, the cutest lamb I had ever seen bounded out of the mist towards me, and started playfully licking my ear.

At this point I awoke to find Mother’s cat Mr. Dinkums licking my ear. Rotten cat spoilt my dream. Anyway after kicking the cat, and chasing it out of my room, I sat on the edge of my bed contemplating the meaning of the dream. What does a lamb, china, mist and plane tickets all mean I wonder? Maybe it just means I should be careful what I eat before going to bed, who knows?

I experimented last night.

I still had cheese, but I had a piccalilli instead of gherkins.

I dreamt I was eight years old, and sat up in bed, watching Michael Jackson moon-walking around my bedroom. He stopped, and looked directly at me. He then squealed “I’m bad”, and grasped his crotch with a begloved hand, making a thrusting motion. he moved to the foot of the bed and reached out to touch my feet. He then started to make retching noises.

At this point I awoke to find Mother’s cat, Mr. Dinkums, lay across my feet, coughing up a fur ball. For once, I was pleased about this.

No more piccalilli for me.

Last night

I dreamt that I was being chased by a pack of rabid leprechauns wearing tutus. Mother says I should stop eating cheese and pickled gherkins before going to bed.
