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.

If you guys need a place to host, is very good for it. Currently I have a site deticated to a Sims 2 project I’ve been working on since February.

when to release?

I’m currently trying to decide which things on my list I want to start writing. I basically want to have one thing from each media on the list reviewed before I even think about releasing it to the public. But when should I actually do that? Writing reviews will take me a long time, and I don’t want to wait too long to get it up.


I want to create a website where I post informal, personal reviews of video games, movies, webcomics, anything else I can think of. Just posting my thoughts about it with a semi-critical eye, whether or not I liked it, and who else might.

At the moment, I’ve made a few banners for the main page, and a few introductory pages, and I’ve brainstormed the media that I’m going to write reviews for. Sometime soon I should find a host, and ask Mom to help me, since she’s the HTML expert.
