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.

Didn't quite work out!

I went to look at the curtains and they didn’t have any in the size I need. Unfortunately, whilst I was in the shop I ended up buying some clothes in the sale instead! So I don’t have new curtains at the moment, but on the positive side, I like my new clothes!

Never mind, I’ll find some that I like soon enough.

Payday next week!

Which means that I will be able to get a couple more things for my flat. There is a sale in a shop I like, so I am hoping to be able to get some new curtains at least, and maybe some more picture frames and so on.

Armchair and cushions!

My best friend is moving house this weekend, so today I took delivery of her armchair that she will no longer have room for. It’s quite big and squidgy, so you sink into it – it’s lovely. I went out and bought three new cushions – one for the armchair and two more to go on my sofa. They were in a sale, so it didn’t cost very much. I’m pleased with the way my flat is looking, I still want to add a few more bits and bobs, but it’s coming along!


I bought a new bookcase today. It was flat pack so I have spent the afternoon putting it together. I’m really plesased as I did it by myself and it hasn’t collapsed!! That’s taken care of the piles of books I have that don’t fit into the bookcases already. On with the re-organizing!


I’m going to go and buy a new bookcase tomorrow. It will have to be flatpack so you can guess what I’ll be doing all day then!

Needed to do this for ages.

I’ve needed to do this for so long. I’ve lived in my current flat for over three years and it’s still not how I want it!! I live in a studio flat so space is very limited, so I seem to end up with piles of stuff all over the place. I need to get another bookcase, a little table, a new TV stand, some storage boxes and then some more curtains and cushions. Maybe a couple of new pictures or something. A friend is giving me an armchair – I have quite a large sofa but no comfortable seperate chairs. I have few days off work, so hopefully I can at least make a start.
