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.

It's done

and I cant wait to get more. I’m so pleased with how it turned out, and my artist was so great- she made me feel at ease and was so friendly!

This time next week

I’ll be tattooed. I’m pretty excited, but the nervousness is also starting to set in…

25 days

and counting.


My apointment is October 25 at noon.
I don’t know if I can wait that long!!!


Just a couple of weeks and I go for my consultation. I’m pretty excited. And nervous. I hope that I wont have to wait months and months to get it done…. I’m assuming that it wont take very long as the design I want is very small, and I’m hoping that since it would (in theory) be a quick job, they might be able to fit me in soon! :D

Trouble Bound

Ok, so I didnt get it this weekend, but a friend and I are going down today at noon to check out the studio and make appointments. I hear they are booking months in advance, so I’m not sure when I’ll be getting it. This is just another step closer, though, and I’m very excited.


Possibly this weekend, in fact.
I’ve plans for a few- four or five so far, but I have yet to follow through on any of them, due to lack of monies. But this week I’m getting a bit extra in my pay, and I thought I might start shopping around…
