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.

Might move this goal up...

I’m moving next month, and it will be literally houses away from the cemetery I mentioned in my last post. Hopefully, this will get me motivated to start that second book. I’ve found that there is actually another book about the same cemetery, but I’m not too worried about that. Unlike the other book, which is about the history of the cemetery, my book will be based on the various intricate gravestones located all over the grounds there. :D

The pic above is Dexter Mausoleum, one of the oldest in the whole cemetery, and is an exact miniature of a cathedral in France.

Shedding Skin...

My first book was called ‘Shedding Skin: Hardcore Identity-Change and Vanishing Techniques for the New Millenium’. I sold it online for about 6 years and made about $10,000 with it. :D

You can still read it for free here:

The pics are not showing anymore for some reason, but the complete text is still there.

My next book will be based on artistic grave markers in an historical cemetery near me.
