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.

Got my camera working again!! Took over a hundred photos of our night in on Friday! FUN!

I think it'd be fun to

take a photo of something beginning with every letter of the alphabet.

E.g an apple, a box, a car, a drumkit etc

I think i may start this mission next week.

I think

I’m going to try and find batteries and film for my old camera.
My dad bought me it when i was about eleven or twelve and it’s a belter!
I sometmes like doing things the old fashioned way and actually having photographs is pretty cool, i like how you get some stupid ones and crap ones and ones where nobody has a head and stuff. They really used to make me smile.

I've finally

finished the disposable camera i’ve had since summer

can’t wait to get it developed to see what’s on there!!


i LOVE photographs and i love looking at old ones, so i have to take them a lot so that i’ll always have old ones to look at! I have a beautiful family, beautiful friends and i live in a beautiful place, so there are plenty of photo op’s!!
