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.

a large venture

The thing is, my Mom is the World’s best cook:D (I’m not saying this because she’s my Mom, it’s a proven fact:))) and over the years, she has collected a vast amount of recipes. She wrote them on little scraps of paper, envelopes, tissues even, house bills,...just about anywhere. And she just kept shoving them in a bag. Now they are mostly useless because it would be very difficult to go through them as they are before lunch every day, there are just so many!!:)
I took it upon myself to type them out and throw the scraps away. It is a serious task that I will have to do bit by bit but I think it will be great once it’s finished, more so because I’ll find ideas for my own cooking.
More great lunches coming up is motivation enough!

Solena D. has gotten 49 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
