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.

Sort out the tortoise (read all 3 entries…)
happy endings!

Happy to report that since I was last on this website the tortoise has gone to a new home in the lake district with a family of animal lovers. he has a nice big shed with outdoor access and another tortoise to keep him company. we originally thought both were the same gender, but were proven wrong when they hatched two babies! So he now has a family as well :) Couldnt be more happy with this outcome :)



Learn to play the ocarina
I dont know why...

No its not because of Zelda, I’ve only played Zelda a couple of times and I haven’t even played Ocarina of Time! :)

I actually decided the other week I wanted to buy a flute and learn to play morning mood…but since they’re so expensive my partner jokingly suggested I buy an Ocarina instead – I looked out of curiosity and they look awesome! So now I’m obsessed and must have one of my own!
