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 need to crack on with this. 2013, give me some great experiences to photograph!


I filled all the stand-alone frames at the flat today :) I love how much better they look with something finally in them! I also like how they will provide little points of interest to any visitors – and whenever I look at them I will remember that point in time and smile. Actually, I had a good little reminisce while searching through my photos on the computer, so all in all a top start!

They look sad.

Firstly I should really curb my habit of buying pretty frames! But I do, so I need to fill them. I have started on this, but have at least 3/4 empty frames knocking around still. Some have been that way for years :S

skittledragon has gotten 16 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
