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.

Hammock Season

is upon us. It sure is. Oh man, yesterday I would have totally loved one. Would have been awesome. I will hopefully buy one as soon as I get some money here. Gosh.

Probably coming soon.

Since spring is basically just around the corner, that means, I’m sure, that Target will be selling them soon. They might have some now, but I’m sure they’ll go on sale before spring. Yay for that. Would be awesome. I really want one.


I was at the State Fair today and they had a ton of really cool ones. I wanted one of course, but they were ones that I’d have to hang like off of a ceiling or something. I think I want something more like with a stand. Plus then that way it’d be easier to take down and store in the garage during the winter. Next Spring, I think I’ll be getting one. I sure hope so.


I saw a cute one at Target in the beginning of the summer. I want one with a stand. I think that would be easier especially where I’m at. It wouldn’t really be possible for me to do the tying it to the tree thing. I wouldn’t feel safe sitting on it if I was the one tying it to the tree anyways. lol. I think I am going to wait until next spring as the summer is nearly over and I haven’t any money to splurge on that right now anyways. haha.
