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.

Doing better

I wonder when I can mark this done. Is it when I can have a full conversation with a fluent spanish speaker?


Yo hablando espanol con mi hermana todos los dias.

Translation: I am speaking spanish with my sister everyday. :]

Even though it is a little.

Im already tri-lingual

I speak English, Swahili, and Nandi. I want to learn even more languages. Right now Im taking spanish in schoool. I think its going really well. Ive taken Spanish I and II. So over the summer I will be practicing with one of my older sisters who is fluent in spanish [she traveled abroad for 1 year to learn….something I plan on doing but maybe for another language?]. My other older sister is fluent in french for the same reason. SO hopefully I can learn a good deal of Spanish and a little french before I leave for college next year. I think I can do this!

Quiero aprender espanol mucho! :D
