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.

Yeah, forgot again. It’s a lot easier to remember some of the landmarks in South America now considering I have a face to put to each country.

Yeah. I kinda forgot about this. Now I’m gonna try for 1k a day, and see how that goes.


15% done


Not enough time to even think about doing this, so I’ve only gotten a bit more over the last month. Laaame.

It's over 9000!

Yeah, blatant DBZ reference, but I’m okay with that (as I’ve been waiting to use it).

It’s been forever since I’ve worked on this, so I’m only at 9,200. Lame, I know. Gotta step this up.


9.2% done!


I’ve been ungodly bored the past few days as my brothers stole my books when they went to Canada, so I’ve been online a tad too much. Letting the computer keep track of all the rice you have is cool, because it helps people with terrible memories still do this.


5% done!

Starting off

Well, I got 2,000 today. I like to frequent this site when I’m bored, so it’d be good to just keep track of what I get done. Besides, it’s a great vocab check, and good for keeping your mind working in summer. The german vocab is fun to see how much of it I actually know from just a few months of learning it.

Anyway, the keeping track.


2% complete!
