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.

Still Reading!

I’ve certainly been reading a lot lately! I’ve been rereading classic books that I was required to read in high school. I’ve read Of Mice And Men, The Great Gatsby, To Kill A Mockingbird, and The Catcher in the Rye. Each one only took me a day or two to read from start to finish. My favorites of these books are To Kill A Mockingbird and The Catcher in the Rye.

Finished Eldest!

It took me but a week to start and finish the sequel to Eragon. A real page turner, it was difficult to put down! Now I have to wait until September 23 for the next book to come out to find out what happens next. I think I’m doing well with “reading more often”.

Finished Utopia!

I finally finished Utopia last night! I was understanding it better and better as I read it. It would seem that I don’t really need the Cliffs Notes I purchased to go along with it, but I think I’ll skim them anyways in case I missed anything. It’s definitely a book every political candidate should have already read and understood! Ahhh….if our world could be more like Utopia…

Finished The DaVinci Code!

I finished The DaVinci Code just now. I remember the movie being just a little different. I’ll have to watch it again to check up on the differences between it and the book.

Shelved Utopia...

I’ve decided to give myself a rest from struggling to get through Utopia. Instead, I started The Da Vinci Code this evening. I saw the movie, so I already know how it ends, but so far the book is giving out much more detail than the movie did.

Utopia (still!)

I’m still reading Utopia, although I’m not sure what I’ve been doing can be considered reading. Basically, the book has been sitting around the house unread (well, half read). I haven’t been very good about “reading more often” lately…


Started reading Utopia over the weekend. It’s going to be tougher to get through than I thought it would be. I’ve ordered the Cliff’s notes for it to help me understand what the heck is going on in it. :o)


I finished “In The Dark of the Night”, by John Saul, today. The story could have been more developed. This wasn’t one of John Saul’s better books…

Started Another

I started another book today. This one’s called “In the Dark of the Night” by John Saul. So far it’s pretty interesting, although there are a lot of characters to remember and I’m only on Chapter 4.

Finally Finished HP7!

I just finished reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. It was a good book, but would have been better without the Epilogue at the end.
