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.

I think I might give making cards more of a serious try. the materials are dirt cheap, and they don’t really take TOO much effort.

here’s one I made, while teaching an art class (so I was essentially being paid to make this card. yay.) – it says “have an egg-cellent day” on the inside. cheesy sells.

finally getting back into it.

updated etsy

etsy #3

new etsy listing!


I opened up an etsy shop the other day to sell some of my knitted items… and then I looked around for things I could list.

I have boxes and boxes of things I’ve knit and hardly ever worn, so you’d think I’d have plenty to list. But noooo.

All my knits are from patterns. Copyrighted patterns.

So I’ve begun a new and dangerous knitting odyssey – making up my own patterns. And it’s skedhrekjhyksrjghseldkjg hard.

I can find my gauge, add a stitch pattern, and create something wearable, but I’m ultimately aiming for adorable and irresistible on top of that. We’ll see how it goes.

If anyone has any suggestions for knitted/sewn accessories they’d be interested in purchasing, let me know!

Josiah’s hat: done. but very possibly too small. it fits me, though, so it’s no serious loss.

my first comissions

Josiah saw my Space Invaders tea cozy and asked for a beanie in the same design. I’m making it with GLOW IN THE DARK yarn. This will be amazing indeed.

Annd Jerry wants me to make him some pots to hold things in. Like guitar picks and pens. Weird. But okay.
