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.

Blog it up!

I’m so happy, I totally started writing. I have a blog,, and I’ve been writing for Some of the posts on my blog are cross-posted from Pikism because I like them enough to put them in both places. If you want to check them out, please do. I appreciate readers.

Figure out what to do next year (high school, job, travel, Katimavik?)

Okay so this was a really really difficult decision. I’ve decided to stay home next year to really take control of my life – get organized, all that good stuff. Probably get a job to save some money for traveling too.

Finish high-school English (read all 4 entries…)

Well, virtual school… it did not work out. I’m torn between thinking I’m lazy and knowing that it really really was not right for me. I’m going to apply for credit recovery in September, which is basically saying “look, I’m good and I’ve done a lot of work, so can I get the credit?” Kind of like a situation based GED thing. We’ll see how that goes.
