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.

not be jealous

ok, so this has been on my list for what…3 months? no progress. actually, i might be getting worse. and you know, i don’t really mind. jealousy leads to creativity, creativity leads to blog content. perfect. at least there is an outlet for my insanity.

here are my thoughts: when mercury is retrograde, virgos go fuckin’ crazy. it’s also a time when exes seem to always get in touch. MORAL: if you are dating a virgo, maybe you shouldn’t meet up with your ex when mercury is retrograde.

see, i blame other people for my jealousy. god, i have issues.

surf better
well, it's official

i leave tomorrow for my surf trip up the coast. i just got my new board and am ridiculously psyched. i just want to leash up and run around my house with it. it’s a 7’ foam hybrid thruster and it’s YELLOW. major yellow. i’ve named it “fat bird”.

here’s to surfing better…

learn to play the harmonica

i can play the intro to “dirty old town” by the pogues. and, well, that’s about it at this point in time.

See all entries ...


I want to:
