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.

CSS Adventure Continues

I’m going to create a series of small, attainable goals related to this one. Learning a computer language is a process, so I’ll just have to eventually decide one day that I have “learned CSS” and mark this goal as complete. In the meantime, I’m adding small steps towards attaining this goal as goals :-)

CSS Adventure Begins

I checked out two books from the library about CSS and have started to work my way through one of them today. It’s a really cool language. I like how it gives you more control over how your web page looks! I mean no wonder my web pages look so old-fashioned. CSS is the way to go if you want to have a nice presentation on the web. I’m happ I am learning this!


I learned HTML back in the days of the dinosaurs (grey background, black text, blue links, tiny images with borders) and so my web pages suck. CSS is what all the cool kids are doing so I need to get with the times. The very idea of change in this area irks me (why?) but I feel like once I learn enough to produce something nice, I’ll end up liking it!
