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.

About two months ago I decided to foster a puppy, you know to seeif I was REALLY wanting a dog or if it was just some pipe dream that would go up in smoke as soon as reality took hold. WELL, I fostered JoJo, who I adopted and named, WILEY!!!! He’s not my Christopher. I think the plan is to get a Christopher when Wiley is old, you know to let the puppy bring him happieness! lol
Then a Brandon… ;)


I want a white SNOW WHITE or a light red names Christopher Lee Wiley!

Changing the goal.

This goal was originally Adopt a Standard Poodle – but I want a Goldendoodle F1B – so there is that…

The search for a name ends:

Boy – Wiley
Girl – Brennen

I adore:

Shivas Gilatoro


Captain! or Sargent! Love those.

Always changing my mind.

Leland. Finn. Brennan.

Okay - narrowed down.

We both used to watch Star Trek when we were little and we are watching it on Netflix now, so… William Thomas Riker was a huge YES for us both. Short – we’d call him Ryker. Then I told the wife that I wanted to call him Brit – that was the last name of the woman who married us. I was thinking – and then the wife cut me off.”We could name him Britain and call him Brit for short.” I smiled, “That is JUST what I was thinking!”
Sooo…. I guess when we get the pup we will see if he is a Ryker or a Brit!

No Gumbo.

Went to meet him today. He is isn’t the pup for us. One – he is not FOR SURE full blooded poodle and that is important because of the allergies of my boo-boo. Two – he is VERY small, couldn’t run with me. Three – he was overly skittish. With 5 cats and 3 chickens a little timid is okay, but wigged out will not work. Looks like is am waiting for Ryker. :)

It's so stupid.

I know.
I going down there to my shelter to take a peek and meet Gumbo. I can’t afford to adopt a dog. I wish it was my birthday, then I could put the squeeze on my wife. :(

LittleFATMe has gotten 4 cheers on this goal.
