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.

Hooray, my socks are finished!

It took a while but they are so pretty!

On to new knitting goals :-)

Nearly done

I’m nearly finished with my socks! I hope to wear them next week!
And I still love the colorway :)

At heels

My second sock is growing, I’m finally at the heel!

And it’s about time, it’s starting to get cold :D

Second sock growing

I managed to get my second sock into the sock-to-be stadium despite the heat!

I can’t wait to wear them. Well, ok, wear them once it’s colder

First sock done!

Hooray – I managed to finish my first sock! And I started the second one!

Isn’t it pretty?

Head over heel :)

I’ve knitted my first heel! On to the toe :-)

Slightly more sock

Due to the heat, not that much progress :)

More sock

Slooooowly the sock is growing :)

My fingers still hurt from the tiny needles, but I’ll get used to it.

Such beautiful colors!


I got the rib part of the sock done and started the sock part :)

Slowly getting used to the tiny needles after a my giant scarf :D

A start

To give myself something positive to think about, I decided to start my socks!
I’ve got this beautiful hand-dyed wool I bought on etsy and – it’s quite a difference from the xxl scarf!

But it’s already so beautiful!

Spatz has gotten 57 cheers on this goal.
