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.

I certainly am NOT going win NaNo. I’m still only just over 20,000 words, but y’know what, it was worth it. Plus, I don’t think my story would have made it to 50,000 since I write so much action. But it also helped me get well introduced to my characters, especially with the extra exercises I did. Next year, I’m going to plan it out more so I can win it. And this was my first year participating, anyway, while juggling school and getting into college. Ah, I’ll drop the excuses.

But my goal was to do NaNoWriMo, and I did it. Even if I didn’t win, I still tried. Next year, however, is going to be a different story. :]

See you guys at Script Frenzy <3


Didn’t quite double it, but I finished my first chapter so it felt appropriate to go ahead and take a break.
Tomorrow’s goal: 2750.

Moi Dix Mois is making excellent background music for this novel. :]


A lot better than yesterday. Hopefully I can increase this by eightfold as well tomorrow ;]


Boy am I F’d if I keep at this rate. I tend to start slow when I write, though. Then I take off. I plan on writing a lot on the weekend when I have more time. I’m currently incredibly thrown off by the DST, Fall back stuff right now though while also fighting off this incredible nausea I’ve been having. I think it’s because I consumed too much sugar on Saturday, but then again, I’ve eaten like that before without getting as terribly sick. Either way I’m laying off the sugar for a while and trying to get my sleeping patterns back into shape. Especially since I had no clue what time it was when I wen to bed. All my clocks are wrong. :\
