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.

A new goal.

I’m really having a fun time with this and have taken some wonderful/ werid pictures but I don’t have a computer to download them on to, or to put them on the net with so I’m going to pause on this and start up again when I achive my new goal…. getting a computer.


So the other day I got a bloody nose from it being so dry lately and instead of going and cleaning it right away, I thought this would be an intresting picture. I grabbed my camara and took a few pictures as the blood is running down my face. One I looked really strung out. So it was an intreseting picture but after I did it I realized how creepy that is.

have you noticed?

I’ve noticed that some days I can take a million pictures, sometimes even great pictures and other days I’m on picture 37 of my cat.


Well I got my camara fixed and I’ve been taking pictures for about 2 weeks but my camara eats bataries like carzy! I’m going to go buy rechargeable bataries but I can’t aford it at the momment. Also it feels weird taking pictures of random things and people give you these strange looks, or thats what I’ve come across.

I need a camara

I need to fix my camara. When I read this I thought it was take a picture of yourself to see how much you’ve changed, I’ve seen this done, but I like this idea better. Fun.
