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.

I suppose what I do is Art

I’ve finally gotten into full swing with my Art blog and…it’s displaying the work I’ve done thus far. I guess this makes me an ‘Artist’.

An Art Blog

/sing song voice/ I made an Art blog.

Specifically, a blog designed to showcase the stuff I make as a record of my progress in learning about and applying myself to the field of Artistic endeavors.

In other words, it’s a shameless whore blog. As many others often are…

This particular blog is doing double duty though. I’ve had enough people ask me for business cards over the (really REALLY crappy) stuff I knit that I’m hedging my bets and making an easy means for them to not only contact me but see all the other stuff I make. Ah…greed…the great motivator.

Did A Few Sketches

I found my old sketch book in my (much needs to be cleaned out) closet and I’ve been doodling in it. It feels nice to occupy my hands with something other than a keyboard again after so long. In addition to the sketch book, I’ve also found my old journal and have been keeping that up again in addition to my online blogs and journals.


I’d still like to learn/relearn other methodology in the Arts process though. I’m not sure how to go about doing it though. I made a goal for this year not to frivolously spend my money and something like that would be “frivolous spending” when compared with bill or food money.

I’m secretly hoping some MICA (or other! I’m not particular!) person will take pity on me and foster my stumbling steps into the creative processes for FREE.

Don't Even Know Where To Start

I did the required stuff in school and loved it all. Its sad how the Arts aren’t given more attention in school. I actually had a 90 minute Physical Education (sleep) class but barely a half an hour for Music which was only for half of the year before the class was switched to Art.

WTH needs a 90 minute PE (sleep) class? Even the teacher thought it was a joke. Hence our catching up on our sleep.

If anyone has any suggestions on what to try out Art-wise, I’m open.
