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.

Getting closer, perhaps

I know a lot more musicians now, and I’ve feel like I’ve “come out” as a musician this week. One of my new friends is starting a band with his friend, and they may need a rythym guitarist (me!!), so I’m excited to see where this takes me.


Ok…I went to a music club meeting this afternoon. In a nutshell: TOO MUCH TESTOSTERONE!! In one corner, there were the metalhead rockers. Surrounding them were band guys. Then there was me. It wasn’t horrible, but I guess musicians aren’t my kind of people… even if I’m one of them… Does that make sense? I don’t know who my people are. Do I even have a “people”? I have a few best friends in different areas, but I don’t really have a niche.
wow… That got off topic…


Well I’m technically in one, but it’s a recreational band at my church. I’d really like to be in a band that gets gigs and practices other than Sundays. Still, I’m really excited for practice to start up tomorrow!!


First I have to meet other musicians…
