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.

Keep a journal

Maybe I can

I think i might have found a way to keep a journal. If i don’t do it this way i have come up with another way that just might work. I like to be on the computer so i went to and made one there only i am not sure how i will like people reading my every thought. Then again i write here so i don’t guess it matters now does it? If i don’t like it there then i will just create a journal thru a program on my computer. I think that would work.


I so suck at this game. I cannot keep a journal for crap. I get bored with it. I forget to write in it and then before i know it i am using the paper for jots for a story i am working on rather than for a journal. It ends up a place for phone numbers that need to be written down. A place for notes to tell someone to feed the dog. Never for what it is supposed to be for. Why cant i do it. I can’t seem to write anything in them that seems journal worthy. It is always boring rambling, but isn’t that what a journal is for? I don’t understand why i cant do it. It should be the simplest of things to do. I cannot seem to do it tho. Tearing my hair out here!


I want to:
