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.

Faith in Cape Town is doing 33 things including…

do a digital photography course

18 cheers


Faith has written 9 entries about this goal

considering a one day course (4 hours)

in late Jan for DSLR cameras cos now that i have the use of this Canon for an extended period of time i want to learn how to really use it properly but the 10 week part time course is too too much.

dunno tho, it’s still pretty pricey.


didn't make it to the

meeting as Vicky was visiting, but will be going along from January.

However, two friends and i have decided to take one morning a month to drive out of our usual area and take pics at different locations, which will also be cool.

i’m really getting into this photography thing now. Someone even asked to use a pic of mine on their website, while another person wants two of my photos signed and framed for her home.


Yay.It's not a course, but...

i finally called this local photographic society number i’ve been meaning to for ages (why do i get nervous to do things like this? Pathetic)

So the chap sounds lovely and says the club is open to anyone from beginners like me to professionals, and they have all sorts of competitions, lessons, talks, week ends away as a group to beautiful places around and social events. I’m off to the first meeting on Monday night to see what it’s like.

Another step towards learning more about photography and also part of my ‘come home’ goal cos i’ll be here, with real people, meeting new possible friends.
