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.

knit a clapotis (read all 3 entries…)
grrr... I give up.

what can I say, my taste in knitted goods is ever-changing and I don’t find myself with the drive (or time/patience!!!!) to do this anymore. I’m still trying to challenge myself with each successive knitting pattern, but this isn’t on the slate anymore, unfortunately.



fire a gun in a shooting range (read all 2 entries…)
I did this on my trip!

fired an AK47 (highly illegal back home) at the Cu Chi Tunnels in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. I was shooting more for the experience than the accuracy/skill… who knows whether I’d actually do this as a hobby (with legal guns of course), but it was a really great new experience and now I can say I’ve shot a gun!



travel after graduating (read all 3 entries…)
best time of my life!

It was so great to be independent, free of parents and friends back home. I’m sad to be back home, but grateful for the experience.
